Reasons to learn a first dance – Tradition

How many times have you been to a wedding where the first dance was more of a drunken shuffle? The first dance is a tradition that dates back to the Victorian times. The first dance is no different to all the other wedding traditions that we treasure, like cutting the cake. Do you really want to miss out on making the most of it by going to learn a first dance?

Reasons to learn a first dance – A special memory

In a big day that can so often feel overwhelming, the first dance can be a special moment of intimacy.  A wedding first dance starts special because you can choose a song that means the world to you. Nearly every couple has that special song, and it doesn’t matter if it is ACDC or John Legend. Combining your music with choreography that suits your personalities will always create a special memory for you and your partner.

Reasons to learn a first dance – Surprise

Weddings are all about surprises. No one gets to see your menu, or hear your band, or see your dress before the big reveal. Let’s face it – this makes all your hard work feel worthwhile. Nothing is more surprising than when you learn a first dance to delight your friends and family. It can be another fun secret to keep up your sleeve for the big day.

Reasons to learn a first dance – De-stress!

With the stress of organisation, there is hardly any time where you and your partner can just be together. Many couples that come to us to learn a first dance have always said that one of the best things is the time they get together. Learning a first dance is not only fun but makes you forget the stress of the wedding. We know that usually it is the brides-to-be that must drag their other halves to the lesson.  However, this changes quickly.  The grooms-to-be are soon dragging the brides-to-be along!

In summary: learning a first dance is not just for the sake of tradition or one more special memory.  Choosing to learn a first dance may be the one thing throughout the whole experience that keeps you sane.

Reasons to learn a first dance – recommendation

Here is a taster of what one of our wedding couples said about learning a first dance here at Rubies Dance Centre:

“We originally took dance lessons for our wedding as we didn’t want to just sway in our first dance. I had dance experience before but my now husband was a total novice. Neil took the time to break down each step and was able to explain anything we did not understand in different ways. He was very reassuring to our worries, took feedback from us on how we were feeling about the choreography and made sure the dance suited us as a couple. Neil and Emily were very accommodating, I was able to get lesson booked in a couple of days in advance (when another studio cancelled on me last minute) and made sure we got all our lessons in before the wedding. He even offered to skype call us on the day if we forgot anything. I would recommend these lessons to anyone planning a wedding, it is such a stressful time and this is a fun activity you can do together to get your mind off planning. Thanks again Neil.” – Miryka & Alex – April 2nd 2017
