Your wedding will be one of the best days of your life. Why not make it even more memorable by having a choreographed first dance or an unforgettable father-daughter dance? Learning to dance for your wedding is a special gift that you and your fiancée can give to each other. The confidence you gain will last a lifetime, and you both will forever have that unique bond of learning to dance together.
The Dance of Your Dreams
A couple’s first dance as husband and wife is a cherished moment. That is why brides and grooms who want to give a polished and graceful performance are preparing for that moment with dance lessons. Feeling confident and poised when you dance together will ensure that your very first dance, as wife and husband, will be a memory you will cherish forever. We’d love to help create the perfect dance for you.
Best First Dance Ever
Every couple has different needs, preferences, and time schedules. That is why at Arthur Murray, we provide different teaching methods and flexible hours. We believe that everyone can be a good dancer with enough time. Wouldn’t it be great to share the romance that comes with dancing for the rest of your lives? We can create something that is uniquely yours. Let us give you the confidence, experience, and knowledge you need to be able to enjoy the romance of your first dance as a married couple.
Maybe your wedding day doesn’t start and end with just the first dance with your beloved. You could include even more surprises with a choreographed father-daughter dance, a special farewell dance, or even a dance incorporating your bridal party!
There are great traditional wedding dances that can be performed like the Waltz, Fox Trots, Tangos, Rumbas, or even unique combinations of all these classics. Along with these traditional dances, we can also help put some extra “wow” into your choreography and create a truly original and surprising first dance!
If you think that most young couples today dream of their first dance at their wedding as a graceful waltz across the floor, think again! Most of the soon-to-be newlyweds today are abandoning slow, romantic ballads for something that would have been considered quite shocking not too long ago. A sultry Tango – perhaps one of the sexiest dances in ballroom – or a high energy Salsa are more likely to take the place of that special dance. One Midwestern couple astonished their guest with a slow, romantic waltz that suddenly transformed into a Cha-Cha taking everyone by surprise.
When Should You Start Taking Lessons?
We recommend starting 3 to 6 months before your wedding. That way you will feel well prepared in advance and will be able to dance with confidence and ease. Even if your wedding is in just a few weeks, however, we can still put together a beautiful dance for you! In this case, we stick to basic steps with small touches of flair. It takes 3 to 4 months to master the basics to look great on the dance floor for that special first dance and the entire celebration. Don’t sell yourself short. Acquire the practice time necessary to kill it when it’s your wedding day.
Let Us Help
“Many couples come back to the studio after their wedding, and they tell us that they were able to enjoy dancing with their aunts, uncles, and grandparents for the first time,” says Tony Cardinali, first Vice President of Franchise Relations for Arthur Murray International.
“While they know that many different age groups will attend, couples don’t realize that the musical range is enormous. When they know the basics, they can enjoy dancing to all different kinds of music.”
If you are planning your wedding, then now is the time to start perfecting that first dance. Capture it on videotape, photograph it, and send the video to your friends who can’t attend the wedding. Those first steps will be memorialized for many years to come.
