Lose the Wedding Stress with

First Dance Lessons

The first dance is a popular wedding tradition. It’s a great way to celebrate your love through dancing and also start the party. Being the groom and the bride everyone expects you to open the party and have a first dance before everyone else. Because a lot of couples don’t have almost any dance experience, they think that doing a first dance will be stressful, but when you actually do it you might find out it’s quite the opposite. The preparation of the wedding can be stressful indeed but having dance lessons during this time can help alleviate this. So how to get started with wedding dance lessons?

Hire a teacher

As we said before, most people are not trained dancers, so it will feel challenging trying to choreograph a first dance. Also dancing in front of an audience can be a seen scary to many.  This is where a teacher can help you put your ideas together and give them a shape on the dance floor. A teacher will guide you through the process from beginning to the end and help you decide on the song, steps, entrance, and many other elements you might otherwise neglect. We offer our clients a 30 minutes free trial lesson to speak with a teacher, go over the main details and even learn a few steps to get started. After that you can decide what’s the best option for you.

Chose a choreography that's perfect for you

When speaking about choreography we’re essentially speaking about a dance style that you like. Based on this style, your teacher will then build the choreography. Different styles have different levels of difficulty so based on the style you chose and the teacher advises you, it will take more or less time to perfect. If you want a mode classical style you can opt for a Viennese or English Waltz, if you want a more creative choreography that challenges you a bit, you can opt for salsa, bachata or even swing. Tango is another popular romantic dance style. Whatever style and song you chose, we can make it happen.

Start to practice

Once you have the initial lesson and you get a better idea of your dance, you can start practising the learned steps straight away. It will take a few lessons to have the choreography together but even before that you can start to practice after every lesson and make sure you remember what you did on the previous lesson. This will help you progress quicker and when you come next time you can enjoy it more. The more practice you get in, the more confident you’l feel if you enjoy it, might become a new hobby for the two of you.

We know this period might be a bit stressful but in the end you will have the wedding to enjoy and make the most out of it. First Dance London is here to help you make sure your first dance is the best in every way and you enjoy the process as much as the end product as well.
