WEDDING DANCE CLASSES
Your first dance together as husband and wife is one of the more spotlighted parts of the wedding day, so give it the attention it deserves! Whether you want your first dance to that special song to be truly memorable, or you just want to be comfortable dancing with each other at your wedding – our experienced instructors can help. We can also choreograph your Father-Daughter, Mother-Son, and bridal party dances too! Blue Moon Dancesport has been teaching couples to dance at their wedding for over 30 years, and pride ourselves on providing the very best in service and instruction.
Some tips from the experts on learning to dance for your big day
START EARLY! Remember, schedules get very hectic as the wedding day approaches. Whether you choose group lessons, private lessons, or a combination of both, getting an early start allows you to pace yourselves comfortably and have some time for a little practice between lessons. We recommend starting at least four to six months early to allow more time for practice, especially if you or your fiance is new to dancing.
Haven’t chosen your song yet? It’s OK! During your first lesson, our instructors will introduce you to the main dances most couples use. We can also help make suggestions depending on which dance you like and do the best. If you already have a song chosen, let us know. Our instructors will tailor a simple, yet beautiful dance that will suit both your song and personalities in order to make your first dance together very special.
Practice in the right shoes. Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on the big day. This includes the groom! We suggest saving your wedding shoes for your special day.
Be consistent with your appointments. The more often you come, the less review there will be in each lesson. Plan at least once a week to get the most from your lessons.
Supplement your dancing with group classes and dance parties when possible. Everyone feels most comfortable in a private lesson, but the group classes and parties will be closer to what the rest of your reception will be like and the teachers will be there to help!
