Question: My fiance and I want to learn a dance for our wedding reception. Which dance style should we learn for our first dance together?
Your first dance as husband and wife is a special event that will be remembered for many years. The type of dancing you choose to perform should reflect the feelings that you share, and possibly a song that is meaningful to you as a couple. Of course, your dance style will also depend on how much time you are willing to devote to practicing.
The foxtrot is one of the most common dances learned by wedding couples, as it is easy to learn and works well with slow love songs and ballads. The traditional waltz is another favorite and is more formal than the foxtrot. Swing dancing
is much more relaxed and casual, a favorite among active and flirty couples. Swing is also easy to learn in a short amount of time.
If you are looking for something a little more sophisticated, consider the salsa, rumba, and cha cha. These are latin dances that are fun and great to know, but require much more time to learn. Whichever dance style you choose for your special day, remember that it is ultimately a special time meant to be shared by the two of you.
