What to know about your first wedding dance

The type of first wedding dance you do is entirely up to you.  It can be traditional, modern, upbeat or a medley of your choice

Over our 8 years of teaching wedding dances, we find that these are the categories that couples have opt for:


This normally falls under the category of a Bridal Waltz or a Romantic Rumba.  Have a unique choreographed routine that flows nicely from one to the other, with added highlights such as turns & dips


2) Modern & Upbeat

This normally includes songs such as Cha Cha, Swing, Salsa.  This adds a lot of fun and brighten up the atmosphere of the night. We do recommend couples that with these types of wedding dances ideally give yourself plenty of time for lessons. This ensures you remember the routine well to add in “natural” body movements and flair.


3)  Medley

Have the best of both worlds.  This seems to be a growing popular option for wedding couples.  Start off traditional with your favourite Bridal Waltz or Romantic Rumba, then break out to a more modern, upbeat song of your choice.  Our breaking medley record is a 7 medley song choreography .  For medley, we recommend consider our 25 to 40 lesson wedding dance package.  Give yourself ample opportunity to “pull-off” a memorable first wedding dance routine with confidence and style. 


First Wedding Dance Tips

  1. Give yourself ample of time.  Don’t add to your wedding plan stress.  Make it a fun activity that you can use to have quality time together,   We recommend packages starting from 15 lessons. We find that this is the minimum average time required from learning a choreography, to adding in your natural grooves and movements.  We recommend couples to come in at least 3 months before their wedding. Ideal time to start is 6 to 12 months before your wedding. We have had very organised couples who have come in 2 years before their wedding day.  This totally took the stress out of their wedding plans and made it a very enjoyable process.  Check out our Adelaide Wedding Dance Lesson Packages for more details


  1. Practise for 1 minute a day, while smiling showing teeth 🙂  Perhaps while you are walking to the letter box or brushing your teeth.  1 minute practise a day, each day is better than none at all or leave it to 10 minutes before your next scheduled lesson 😉  This is an effective way to develop good habit and convert short term to long-term muscle memory!!


  1. Consider bustling up your wedding dress.   We will find out during your free private dance lesson what type of dress you have.  Ideally we recommend speaking to your dressmaker and organise the dress to be bustled up.  Some couples even consider changing to a different dress, depending on the type of wedding dance and the dance moves involved.


  1. We recommend ideally for your first wedding dance routine to keep it to approximately 1:30 (to maximum 2 min ).  Keep it short and sweet. More time for you to perfect your dance moves and keep your guest entertained for their ideal attentive time.
