3 TOP TIPS ON CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING DANCE SONG
“We will customise the wedding dance routine to your song choice”
CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING SONG
When it comes to starting your wedding dance, the first step is choosing your wedding song
1.CHOOSE WEDDING SONGS THAT YOU GUYS LOVE!
For your wedding dance, (e.g., first dance, bridal party, wedding dance entrance), We recommend you choose your own wedding songs. Are there favourites that you guys both love? Are there songs that have significance to you guys when you first dated? Are there songs that the lyrics really resonate with you guys? Are there songs that have always been your all-time favourite?
The best thing about you guys choosing your own songs rather than we choose it for you, you will find it even more personalised and fun when we customise the routine according to the cues given in the music and lyric

- COME UP WITH YOUR TOP 3 TO 5 SONGS
Have a listen to numerous weddings songs and shortlist your top 3 to 5 songs. When you come in for your first lesson, we’ll listen to your songs & you may find that once you start dancing to it, there may be one you prefer over the other due to pace, melody and the ambience created in the dance (e.g., romantic, graceful, fun, upbeat).
Considerations when choosing your top 5 songs:
The song helps create the feeling and atmosphere for you guys and for the night. Hence, we recommend choosing a variety of slow to medium pace songs. For example, you may want to consider 1 popular slow to medium pace (wedding) song and then have at least 1 song that has a (slight) upbeat feel to it.
That way, options that can be considered:
* the traditional, romantic song can be your first dance and the upbeat song can even be considered to be played after to get the bridal party or guest up, setting up the atmosphere for the rest of the night.
* Have a mashup wedding dance – one of the most popular options at the moment is mashup i.e., You can start off with a slow, traditional, romantic song and half way through you can break out into something fun, unexpected for your guest (e.g., grease lightning). Not only would it be a fun experience learning the different routines for your wedding, it will also be a “wow” factor for your guest & certainly will uplift the atmosphere for the rest of the night!!!
Having your song ready by your 1st lesson will also mean that we can even start choreographing your wedding dance right from the very 1st lesson!!!
3.HOW IS THE SONG BEING PLAYED ON THE NIGHT?
Do you have a DJ on the night? Is your wedding song going to be played by a live band?
Most couples have DJ on the night. Have your song ready with the correct version to give your DJ, at least a few weeks before your wedding. If you have a mix of songs, for example a dance mashup, speak to your DJ to see if he can help merge the songs together. We can also help give you advice on how to do so as we go plan out your wedding dance routine.
If you are going to have a live band playing on the night and the song to your first dance is also going to be played by your live band, then we suggest having a pre-recorded version to work with for your wedding dance lessons. That way, there will be little surprises on the night. If however that is not possible, we will have suggestions and methods to teach you to help you prepare for it.

“I loved that we were able to choose the song that was right for us and they created a routine for us based on our skills and as we improved they were able to help us “jazz” up the performance until we had it all specky and perfect.
Everyone was quite impressed with our dance and we had many requests for encores!!!”
“…they worked with both of us, utilising with any natural rhythm we may have started with. They looked at the type of dance we wanted to portray aka romantic, beautiful, fun… whatever speaks to you then piece by piece we were slowly learning choreographing & practising it into the song of our choice”
