The most common wedding dance questions:
- What style of dance should we learn for the song we chose? Couples dance to all kinds of contemporary music and classics. We can help you choose the right dance or mix of dances which may turn out to be a Foxtrot, Swing, Cha Cha, Rumba, Waltz, or something completely different. You can choose your dance style based on either your song, or by the amount of time you want to devote to learning and vision you have for your wedding dance.
- Should we choreograph our dance? You don’t have to memorize a “routine.” You will surprise yourself with how easy it is to look polished with a simple repertoire of moves with no memorization of sequences. We don’t want you to look stiff, like deers in the headlights while your guests stare at you. If you have more time and what something more complex, then you can have a beautifully choreographed wedding dance.
- Can we dance to something really different? Absolutely! If it has a beat, we can teach you to dance to it. Your first dance is a unique expression of you, and you don’t need to to fit any mold. You want to love your dance!
