Calm your nerves with Dance Lessons

One of the best traditions of weddings is the first dance. This can be either a sentimental slow song, a modern pop song or a fun mix of both. Yet, it can also be a stressful moment. In particular, if the couple hasn’t prepared and is fearful about being in the spotlight. The last thing a couple wants to do is just sway back and forth in front of all their guests just as if they were back in middle school. The solution to this is to get some training from a professional wedding dance teacher so that you are prepared for that big day. In this article, we will provide some tips on how to get ready for this first dance.

Hire A Teacher
Most people are not trained dancers and even if they enjoy dancing, they don’t have experience dancing as a couple. They may consider themselves unable to dance with two left feet, and get very scared at the idea of having everybody watch them during their first dance. At the very least they don’t want to bore the audience watching them just waddle around the dance floor. There is a simple solution to this: hire a dance teacher. They can help you learn some basic moves so you feel more comfortable on the dance floor. Your instructor can also help you choose the dance style and choreography for your dance.

Choose Choreography Appropriate For The Theme
Once you hire a dance teacher, the possibilities are endless for your dance. They will provide custom choreography to fit your song of choice. This doesn’t have to be very hard or advanced. After all, you’re not competing for the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars. Work with your dance instructor to figure out the movement that matches your theme, vision and skill level. Even if you are going to do a slow dance, there are more options than you might think. And of course, you can always spice things up by segueing from your slow romantic song to a fast party song. Your guests will be impressed with your slick new moves.

Practice Makes Perfect
Once you’ve begun your lessons you must practice, practice, practice. Practice with your teacher and with your partner at home and in the studio. Remember, you will only have one first dance. And if you’re going to go through the trouble of hiring a dance teacher you should get the most out of it. The only way you can do that is by practice. The more you practice, the better you will get and the more confidence you will have on the dance floor. You may even find a new hobby together.
