WEDDING DANCE GUIDE TIP 3
“What dance style should I choose for my wedding dance?”
Rumba or Bridal Waltz are the two most traditional styles danced at weddings. Both are slightly slower in tempo which is perfect if you’ve never danced before! Rumba is passionate and can be danced to both classic & modern love ballads. Bridal Waltz is graceful and elegant dance with a focus on body alignment that often results in fantastic photos.
However, the ultimate choice is YOURS. “The world is your oyster”. You may feel a cheeky cha cha better suits you and your partner, or even a showy salsa! Some people even choose to combine a couple of songs into one killer medley within which they switch through multiple dance styles! It’s your day and you get to choose the atmosphere.
We promise we will help you achieve your dance goals whatever they may be. We want to work with your ideas and come together with a dance routine that will amaze you. Your private wedding dance lessons with one of our wedding dance instructor will allow us to work closely with you each & every lesson to give you the optimal results.
At your Trial Wedding Dance Lesson, we will discuss the dance styles that are best suited for you.
WEDDING DANCE GUIDE TIP 4
“When should I start? How many wedding dance lessons do I need?”
We suggest starting your wedding dance as soon as possible. We understand that there is so much to plan for your wedding and we want your wedding dance to be something that feels comfortable and uniquely yours. The earlier we start working on the dance, the more natural it will feel on the day.
Ideally we recommend couples begin to plan their wedding dance 3 to 12 months before the wedding. This allows us to train the muscles and build the flexibility required for your dance to look natural and elegant.
However, if your wedding dance was something that got forgotten until the last moment, inquire about our Boot Camp option! We can give you a condensed crash course on timing and movement whilst still slipping in a few fancy features to blow your crowd away.
Our wedding dance packages start from 15 lessons and go up to 40 lessons. We recommend practicing your dance at least once a day to keep the choreography fresh in your mind and to help your body adapt to the different movements. This will ensure you feel confident on the day; by then your dance will feel like second nature!

WEDDING DANCE GUIDE TIP 5:
“What song should I choose?” “How long should the dance be for?”
Do you already have a song in mind for your first dance? Bring it along and we will listen to it at your Free Wedding Dance Lesson! Listening to it together will allow you to share any ideas you have about the dance, and allow us suggest dance styles and lesson packages accordingly.
If you don’t have any wedding songs in mind, we are happy to point you in the right direction and make recommendations. To give you a head start, check out our Best Wedding Song Playlist to gather ideas.
We recommend our wedding dance couples keep their wedding dance between one and a half to two minutes long. This gives a higher quality guarantee and means that you can spend more time practicing and polishing and less time trying to remember new moves! This keeps your guest interested & entertained; impress them, then invite them to join before they start to lose attention!
