DANCING and to ensure your first dance as husband and wife will be a
enjoyable event for you as well as please your wedding guests.

2. SELECT A SONG THAT IS NOT TOO LONG - A Song between Two to
Three minutes long is best.
Songs longer that that may get boring for your guests.
3. PRACTICE YOUR DANCE WITH CD OF SONG you select. When you
practice put the CD on repeat.
Once you get comfortable with the dance steps and timing to your
first dance song, also practice with other songs and faster and
slower tempos so you can dance to a variety of music tempos at
your wedding -and after the wedding. This will also keep you
from getting bored with your first dance song. Our Wedding
Day CD offers a good selection of songs to
4. PRACTICE YOUR DANCING - Regular practice is the only way to
get comfortable with the steps and with dancing together so it
feels natural. This will also help you learn to lead and follow
and look good when you dance. The more you do practice the
better it feels! Plan to practice.... at least three 20
minute sessions a week. Your goal is to feel that you are
"dancing as one".
5. CONSIDER TAKING DANCE LESSONS -If you want your first dance
to look really great take private dance lessons (5 to10 is a
good average). If you can't take private lessons the next best
option is to buy a First
Dance instruction DVD or Video or DVD Dance
Kit. The Menu on DVD makes it easy to select each dance and
repeat and learn the steps. The CD that comes with the Kit give
you a good selection of songs with comfortable dance beats to
practice your dancing.
6.WHAT SIZE IS YOUR DANCE FLOOR ? Find out what size your
reception dance floor is and try to practice your dance using
the same approximate space at home. If you do not have
enough space to practice the full dance routine, practice one or
two individual steps at a time.
7. PLAN HOW WILL DANCE START AND END - Will it be at the
beginning of the reception or after dinner? How will you START
and END your first dance?
8. INFORM YOUR TEAM - Tell your Band , DJ and Photographer, when
you plan to do your first dance. Also Check with your Band or DJ
to be sure they play your first dance song at the tempo (music
speed) that you practiced your dance with your song CD. To be
sure of getting great pictures of your first dance, tell your
photographer and Video person when you plan to start your first
dance and if possible demonstrate which dance moves you'd like
them to capture...especially important is the dip at the end of
9.PLAN FOR THE UNEXPECTED TO HAPPEN - No matter what happens
during your first dance...like forgetting a step or twirl, just
keep dancing, enjoy the thrill of this special time together and
just have fun and enjoy your first dance! Remember no one
knows what your dance steps should be but you. Also ladies....no
matter what last minute changes he makes....follow him anywhere!
