If you want to dazzle your family and friends as you glide across the floor with confidence for your first dance, then there a few steps to consider.
Leave Enough Time before Your Wedding
If possible give yourselves approximately 2 to 3 months or more to take lessons, and practice in between those lessons. The more you go over and over your steps and choreography, the easier the process will be and the more confident you will be for your first dance.
Have a Song and/or Style in Mind
If you have a song picked out before lessons begin, that is fine. Whatever style of dance fits that song will be your dance. If you do not have a song, that is OK too. Kathy can then see what dance style suits you best, and then pick a song you like that fits that rhythm. Also, some client’s choose to combine different dances within the same song if it is adaptable.
How Long Will It Take To Learn?
It depends on a few factors. How well do you hear music, the rhythm of the song? Are you coordinated? How much will you practice outside of your lessons? All of these contribute to the process of learning quicker or slower. The good news is no matter which it is, either way you can feel much better and comfortable about your dancing.
Partially or Completely Choreographed Dance
Your dance can be totally or partially put together in choreography. It really depends on what your needs and wants are. Do you want your routine set, or have just certain parts choreographed? Another choice is to have a definite beginning and ending and then wing it with the steps you have learned. Kathy can arrange the dance to suit your taste and personalities.
Lessons for Everyone
Dance lessons can be for the bride and groom, family members, and those in the wedding party. Many times guests will wish they had taken some lessons to enjoy dancing at the reception even more.
