Bride and Groom: Preparing For Your First Dance

Romance is the very essence of weddings, but one of the most heartfelt moments throughout the celebration is the first dance between a new husband and wife. It’s the moment when the two of you can finally let go of all the stress that went into planning, move with the music, and simply enjoy the ambiance as you hold each other in front of your loved ones.

But it doesn’t end there. From the father-daughter and mother-son dances to the proceeding celebrations with your guests, dancing is a large aspect of your entire wedding reception. Being comfortable with the movement and rhythm of your body, along with your spouse’s, allows you to enjoy those moments to the fullest, building a night of beautiful memories you’ll cherish forever. Ballroom dance classes are an excellent way to achieve this.

As Crysta of Arthur Murray Dance Studios Toronto says, “Dancing is more than learning choreography. It’s an expression, and a beautiful gift that husbands and wives can enjoy together for years to come. Just imagine your future anniversaries as you grow older.”

Taking ballroom dance lessons in the months leading up to your wedding will not only build your confidence on the dance floor, but also give you a really fun opportunity to learn something new while bonding with your fiance. Together, you’ll discover basic footwork and proper composure for ballroom dancing as well as a new appreciation for music and dance. Whether you’re envisioning a romantic slow waltz or a fast-paced swing number for your first dance as husband and wife, dance classes in Toronto are available to teach you everything you need to know. The techniques you’ll learn at the dance studio will translate into being comfortable in a variety of dancing situations, but most importantly, they’ll help you overcome any angst you may be feeling about dancing in front of an audience on your wedding day.

When you initially contact a Toronto dance studio about ballroom dance classes, there are a few things to keep in mind and share with your instructor:

  • How much time you can invest in practicing, both at home and at the studio, before your wedding day. Remember, practice makes perfect and your commitment will pay off on the big day.
  • What type of ballroom dance lessons you’re interested in.
  • The attire you’ll be wearing on your wedding day, especially the bride’s shoes and dress. For example, a ballroom dance involving high leg movements above the knee will be difficult in a tight mermaid gown.
  • The music you’ll be dancing to, especially the first dance.

Regardless of these considerations and your experience level, ballroom dance lessons are an excellent way for you and your partner to have fun together during your wedding planning. Even the most novice dancers will be surprised at what they can learn through an insightful, steady approach to ballroom dance classes in Toronto.
