Your first dance is special. Stepping out on the dance floor, hand in hand with the love of your life, you’ll sway to the beat. If you’re not a natural dancer, there’s no need to be nervous. Here are six ways to enjoy this time-honored tradition with poise and confidence.
1. Pick a special song
Your love is unique and so are your personalities. Pick a melody that means something to both of you. Whether it was the first song you danced to on a date or a song that represents your love now, you’ll be more excited to go out there and get on the dance floor in front of a giant crowd.
2. Take lessons
Want some help with a dance routine? A choreographer can make the dance much more fun and refine your skills. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned veteran. A teacher can help you feel less stressed on your wedding day.
3. It doesn’t have to be long and complicated
Some people feel their dance must be an elaborate show, but it doesn’t have to be. You’re not a contestant in a dance competition! It’s your wedding day. Don’t feel pressured to do too much. A simple two-step dance works well and most songs last only three minutes.
4. Be patient
Both of you may have different dancing abilities. Take into account where you are and create a dance that caters to your skills as a couple. While you’re practicing, be patient with each other and don’t forget to have fun.
5. Take a whirl on the dance floor before the wedding
Dancers tend to be less nervous on the day of the dance because they’ve prepared themselves during a rehearsal. You can do the same! Before the wedding, take some time to do the dance you’ve prepared. Decide where you’ll start the dance on the floor and go through the steps.
6. Smile and have fun
Your guests will know if you’re having a good time. When it comes time to do your first dance, relax and smile. When you’re laughing and having fun with your newly married partner, the good feelings are contagious to the crowd.
