Tips on Preparing for Wedding Dance Lessons

Once you have made the decision to take dance lessons in order to make your first dance as husband and wife memorable, you next need to prepare for the lessons themselves. Sure, you can go in “blind” and ask your instructor for help on where to begin, but you will get the best results when you and your future spouse are fully prepared and have a plan in mind. Here are three important tips to consider:

Private or Public Lessons?

This is the difference between receiving personalized attention and taking a class surrounded by people in a similar situation. There is nothing wrong with attending a public class or two first – you may even meet some new friends – before refining your skills with a private class later on, closer to your wedding date. The cost of the lessons is a factor here, as well. Obviously public classes cost less, but if you can afford it and want the one on one attention that comes with a private lesson, by all means, go for it.

What Type of Dance Do You Want To Do?

There are many different types of ballroom dance that can be used for the ceremonial first spin on the dance floor. Before you go to your first lesson, it helps if you have a general idea of what you would like that type of dance to be. Do you want a classic waltz? A traditional polka? Something more modern that requires more footwork? Or something romantic and slow? The choice is up to you.

Are You Athletic Enough to Pull This Off?

The answer is yes. Most people – even those who are fairly out of shape – can pull off a basic waltz. The shape that you are in and the amount of time that you have to put into lessons are factors here as well.
