How to dance at your wedding

5 Simple Tips for a Fun and Flawless First Dance

Ah, the first dance! You’re either having romantic visions of floating around the room in the arms of your love…or dreading the possibility of an awkward shuffle in the spotlight. Regardless of whether you’re a dance floor regular, there are a few simple things you can do to guarantee a fun and flawless first dance on your wedding day. These tips from The Next Step Co. director and choreographer, Roshin Taylor, will help you ensure your first steps as a married couple are coordinated ones! 

1. Pick a song that really suits you both.

Don’t choose one because it’s popular at the time or conforms to older traditions. If you both really love a song or an artist in particular but think it may not be ‘wedding appropriate’, you may find a cover or acoustic version that is just perfect. Also, don’t get trapped into thinking it has to be slow and soppy – your first dance should reflect your personalities and be about you both having fun and enjoying the moment.

2. Keep it short and sweet.

Your wedding is a celebration and you want to keep those party vibes in full swing. Don’t let the song play out for four and a half, five minutes – it just dulls the mood. Even with the most impressive choreography, two to three minutes is the perfect length to leave everyone engaged and wanting more. Entertained guests are more inclined to jump straight onto the dance floor and continue the party with you after!

3. Think about your outfit and shoes.

If you have a few moves planned, make sure your dress allows for them. Long trains, many fishtail or mermaid style gowns or off-the-shoulder designs can be quite restrictive for certain dance moves. Also plan ahead by wearing your shoes a couple of times to see how confidently you can move around the dance floor in them. It’s no good practicing some great moves barefoot in your lounge room and then realising you can’t actually do them on the night! Remember you can always change your outfit if you have your heart set on certain choreography (as if you needed an excuse for a second dress!).

4. Learn a few basics. 

Having a lesson or two at the very least will get you both on the same page and eliminate the awkwardness factor. It really does make all the difference! Lessons can be scary but you’d be surprised how fun it is – on countless occasions, couples have commented just how much fun they had learning and practicing together in the lead up to the big day that they hadn’t anticipated.

If you really don’t have time or can’t convince your partner to do a private lesson, try some moves together at home. Get comfortable with swaying together (on the spot and moving around), a few simple turns and a dip. Remember even with lessons, the more practice, the more natural and at ease you’ll be!

5. Be present in the moment and just enjoy.

There will be some nerves, champagne consumed, different flooring and the dress always brings another element of complication. So let it be, smile and relax. Whatever happens at the end of the day, you’ve just married the love of your life and get to dance the night away with them!

Everything You Need to Know About Wedding First Dances

We put your burning questions to two London-based first dance wedding choreographers: Emma Weir, instructor and founder of Forever Wedding Dance, and Lukas Alexander, Founder and Creative Director of Save the First Dance Ltd. They filled us in on everything from when the dance takes place to how to nip pre-dance jitters in the bud.

What Is The First Dance at a Wedding?   

"The first time a newlywed couple dances together at the wedding reception is known as the first dance," says Lukus. "This is a much-anticipated event and a special pre-selected song is typically played while wedding guests look on. The dance floor is 'officially' open to guests following the first dance."

Who Has the First Dance at a Wedding?

"The first dance usually just features the couple although they may invite guests and other members of the wedding party to join them on the floor after a suitable time," explains Emma.

If you're not keen to be in the spotlight for an entire song, or you simply want your nearest and dearest to join you on the dance floor asap, speak with your DJ, musician or whoever is in charge of the music ahead of time. Decide on a point within the song where an announcement can be made asking your guests to join you on the floor. Alternative first dances are an emerging wedding trend - you can think outside the box if you're not keen on the idea of dancing in front of everyone.

When is the First Dance at a Wedding?

Typically it happens at the start of your evening reception but, as with everything else about your. day, we advise following the 'your day, your way' mantra and simply perform your first dance at the time that's best for you. Emma agrees: "Usually the first dance kicks off the evening reception, getting the party started when the band or DJ begin. However, sometimes people prefer to perform the dance earlier in the reception, such as before the meal."

How Do I Slow Dance at My Wedding?

"The most important thing is to feel comfortable. A traditional ‘ballroom’ style hold is a classic and allows you to lift your arm easily to add in some twirls or do a dip. Having a dance lesson to learn the basics of hold and leading/following a few simple moves can often help with things like hand placement and finding the beat in the music which can help boost confidence on the dance floor," says Emma.

How Should I Announce the First Dance at My Wedding?

"Depending on your arrangements, this could be announced by the Master of Ceremonies, your DJ or the band. You can discuss with them whether you want to walk onto the floor over the music or for them to wait until you are in place before the music starts," Emma explains. 

How Do I Do a First Dance at a Wedding?

The short answer? However you like! While slow dances were once the first dance du jour, these days anything goes and couples are encouraged to move in a way that best fits with their chosen music. Our experts agree: "These days a wedding dance can be anything you want it to be from a classic, romantic slow dance to something quirky and upbeat," says Emma, "Often couples want their song choice to reflect them and their relationship and, as a wedding choreographer, I have been asked to put together routines to all kinds of music.

"Some people know straightaway that they would like to learn a routine to their chosen song and others say they’d just like a few moves to avoid the ‘dreaded shuffle’ – i.e. awkward swaying without shape or style. It really doesn’t have to be complex, you just need to look and feel comfortable.

Lukas echoes Emma's sentiment: "Couples can choose to do an improvised two step or waltz on the day," he reveals. "However, in recent years, we have seen couples deciding that they would prefer to be more prepared for their first dance for their special day and contact us to choreograph their routine. This is whether it will be a traditional routine or a fun surprising dance."

Should I Practice My Wedding First Dance?

"Yes! Get to know your music so you can feel the beat and find the highlights in the lyrics so you can add in some twirls or dips at key moments. Even if you have lessons, definitely rehearse between sessions so that you can get the moves into your muscle memory and dance it intuitively. I recommend little and often, even if you don’t have much space at home. Do it regularly and it will feel more natural," advises Emma. 

We think if you're going to the effort of hiring a choreographer, practising between sessions is the best way to get the most out of your tuition. Why not make it a regular date night with a takeaway afterwards as a reward for all of your hard work? It can be a great way to spend time together ahead of the big day.

What is the Traditional Dance for a Wedding First Dance?

First dances have traditionally involved slow styles rooted in ballroom. However, increasing numbers of couples are breaking away from tradition and choosing a style that suits them and their song choice. 

Emma always allows the style of movement to stem from the music itself: "Unless the couple have asked to do a particular dance (and their song works for that rhythm) I tend to borrow movements from a range of dance styles and blend them to suit the music that they have asked for."

How do I  Beat First Dance Nerves?

Getting in plenty of rehearsal ahead of the big day should help to allay any pre-dance stage fright along with selecting a dance that feels natural to you: "Think ahead about what makes you feel nervous and take some time to prepare. If you think you’ll feel more assured with the structure of a routine then work with your teacher to build something that suits you and rehearse it until it feels natural," says Emma.

"If you think that learning a lot of choreography will just add stress then simply get to know your music and have a few moves that you are comfortable with to give your dance a bit of shape. A teacher can help you with things like how to lead and follow with little tricks like how to place your hands to make turns smoother and improve your balance and musicality – these little details can make all the difference.

"However, the most important thing is to smile at your partner, make eye contact and have fun, even if you make a mistake. No one else will know if you go wrong unless you show it on your face so just keep smiling and relax, enjoy your day. If you look tense, your guests will feel tense on your behalf but if you’re having a great time, they will too."

How to dance beautifully for a wedding? Tips for the bride and groom

A wedding for a guy and a girl is always a serious step into the future, and for relatives and friends it is a reason to congratulate a new family on the start of family life.

And every couple really wants to make a good impression on all the guests. They do their best to make this day memorable for a long time. nine0023

Today you can practically not bother about how to organize and hold a wedding. After all, there are a lot of agencies around that have been conducting such events for a long time and for every taste and color. If you look from the other side, then many young people want to feel the whole atmosphere of preparation, at the same time bring something from themselves into this holiday of the soul, add zest.

How to dance at a wedding for young people and guests

As you know, this is one of the parts of the celebration. Even many shy "copies" after a few glasses of champagne or shots of vodka already feel like their feet are dancing. nine0023

But the most important dance of the evening is the first dance of the young. And how every young couple wants to hear applause and praise in their address after such a dance.

Therefore, it is important to choose the right song, learn the dance very well, and then impress all the guests with your skill.

A few tips:

  • It is important to know the meaning of the song if it is a foreign composition. Otherwise, it won't work out very well if you dance to a breakup song or something worse. nine0129
  • It is not necessary to dance in the classical style (waltz). Choose what your heart desires. Moreover, there are many other equally interesting dances. The main thing is that everything should be well rehearsed and look harmonious.
  • But keep in mind one thing: rock songs are not the best option. Most likely, the guests will just get bored. But the lezginka is very suitable. After all, these melodies pull not only young people to dance, but also guests immediately.

If the first dance is a waltz, then it turns out that you force the guests to start with a waltz and so on. If your couple are dancers, then there may still be an exception for you. After all, such dances require special preparation, and only newlyweds will be prepared from all those present. nine0023

And if you are doing a wedding with a thematic scenario, then the first dance is selected based on your theme.

The best thing at a wedding, as well as at any holiday, is to alternate slow dances with cheerful and incendiary ones. This will allow you to relax and use the maximum number of people for the dance.

Competitions for guests

But still, it is important not to forget about the guests. So, we present to your attention several interesting dance competitions for guests:

Journey in a train

Participants dance in a train, holding each other by the waist or shoulders. But from time to time you need to change compositions.

In order to continue “riding” in the train, everyone needs to dance to the music playing at the moment. This can include folk songs, music for lezginka, etc.

The main thing is to take it on camera so that there is something to remember.

Mop Dance

You will need an odd number of guests and a mop. At the beginning, everyone is divided into pairs, and someone dances with a mop. When the music stops, you need to quickly change pairs so as not to be left with a mop.

Such dances will not let the guests get bored, they will make the holiday incendiary. The main thing is to choose the right music and approach this issue with a bit of imagination.


Participants can be any number of people - most importantly in pairs (man and woman). The competition is for couples to dance with their backs to each other. nine0023

It is important for this competition that the music be well-known and playful : polka, lambada, rock and roll, cha-cha-cha, waltz.

The winners are selected by voting from those whose couple has not broken up before the end of the competition.

Dances of the peoples of the world

Five couples are selected for the competition. Several folk dances must be prepared, and each couple dances as they imagine it in their own way, a unique dance will turn out.

Winners are determined by voting.

The participants of such competitions will be lucky twice, they will have fun participating in the program and after, when they look at their performances in the video, which we strongly advise you to order from video filming professionals.

Dance competitions are one of the faithful and reliable assistants at weddings in order for guests to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere and have fun from the heart.

Have a good dance evening! nine0115


A Simple Guide to 10 Traditional Ballroom Dances

If you're interested in ballroom dancing but don't know where to start, there's only one place to start: dance lessons for beginners at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Learning the most widely known partner dances can make you the star of any social event and bring some fun and culture into your life at the same time. When you sign up for ballroom dancing classes, the information in this post can help you learn more about the different types of ballroom dancing. When someone refers to the "International Ballroom" dance style, for example, they are talking about 10 different dances. Below you will find a simple explanation of the ten most popular ballroom dance styles:


This is the dance most often thought of when someone mentions ballroom dancing. That's 28 beats per minute in 3/4 of the time, and it can be quite romantic.


Ballroom tango is different from Argentine tango. It has a time signature of 2/4 and it is 32 beats per minute. While ballroom tango can certainly be romantic, the best way to describe this popular dance is "sensual."


This is an all American jazz dance set that can be fast or slow depending on the band.


This dance is inspired by the foxtrot but has a much faster tempo, hence the name.

Viennese Waltz

As soon as the 3/4 music starts, the ballroom studio will light up with the fast and passionate flow of this "old school" waltz.

International Latin Samba

A cheerful dance that is used in competitions, but as the national dance of Brazil, it is solo.


This flirtatious dance can be seen as a slow mamba. A lot of hip movement will be involved.


Rumba is considered by many to be the most passionate and romantic dance on this list. This is incredibly difficult and involves many different hip movements.


A spicy swing dance to big band music in which the man leads and the women encourage the men to ask them to dance.

Paso Doble

A man dances like a bull and a woman dances like a bullfighter.

If you would like to take an adult ballroom dance class, consider these options. Whatever grabs your attention or tickles your imagination, why not give it a try?

The philosophy of Fred Astaire Dance Studios is simple and clear: ballroom dancing should always be fun! We work with students of all ages and abilities to help them realize their ballroom dancing goals in a warm, friendly and 100% non-judgmental environment. nine0023

Ballroom dancing training will give you more confidence on the dance floor, a great workout and a much better connection with your body!

Fall Out Boy - Dance, Dance lyrics0027 Burdened with words too dramatic

Tonight "It doesn't get any worse"
Vs. "No one should ever feel like..."

I'm two-quarters and heartless
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have, so I'll write them
So you only need them to get to

Dance, dance
We fall apart
Dance, dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, they would love so much
If only they knew how suffering loved me

You always reset before they recognize you
Drink this is the last call
Last resort
But only the first mistake and I..

I'm two quarters and my heart dropped
And i don't want to forget how your voice sounds
these words are all i have so i'll write them down
so you need them to just dial

why don't you show me some spine
you've been saving for your mattress , love

Dancing, dancing
We fall apart half the time
Dancing, dancing
And these are the lives you like to lead
Dance, this is how they would love
If they knew how misfortunes loved me

Why don't you don't show me some spine
You saved up for his mattress (mattress, mattress)
I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me

Dance, dance
We fall apart half the time
Dance, dance
And these are the lives you love to lead

Dance, this is how they would like (the way they would like)
Dance, this is the way they would like (the way they would like) )
Dance, this is how they would like
If they knew how I was loved by suffering

Dance, dance
Dance, dance

Don't let these 5 things rule your life (inspiring)

Download or stream now on

If you want to live a GREAT life, don't let yourself control any of it.

NUMBER 2 - Other people's opinions and judgments
NUMBER 3 - LIMITED BELIEFS that you project onto yourself.
NUMBER 4 - relationships and

Don't let the past control your PRESENT or your FUTURE. Whatever happens, you have to let go.
Leave the pain of the past behind... lest it destroy your future. nine0023

Leave the darkness of your past behind so that it doesn't obscure the light of your bright future.
Your past is gone. Whatever happens, be it unfair, cruel, harsh, in any case, experiencing the events will never do you any good. If someone did you wrong, the ONLY WAY you can win is to let go and move on. If you live in hate, they will win. If you live in a victim story, they will win. If YOU want to win, you must focus on building your future and start right now. nine0023

Remove this weight from your back to free yourself. Don't let the events of the past that are now gone ruin this moment that is perfect - this moment that is now to be enjoyed, that is ready for you to FULLY LIVE. Your past is not equal to your future.

Don't let other people's opinions and judgments determine the direction of your life. The need to fit in and feel needed can motivate you to go down a path you don't want to go down. Pleasing people is a curse to be avoided at all costs. Before doing anything, ask yourself: am I doing this because I want to do it? ...or because of my fear of being judged by others if I don't. nine0023

You were born unique for a reason, you were born to stand out, to be appreciated and loved for WHO YOU ARE. Don't dim the lights to fit into the dull backdrop of other people's lives. Shine bright AS YOU ARE, those who truly care about you will see the light and shine with you.

Don't let your own limited beliefs control your life. NOW warning with this. These beliefs may be conscious, but more than likely they will be unconscious. These may be unconscious limitations that have been conditioned from an early age and throughout your life when you listened to others who never pursued their dreams. Pay attention to your limited beliefs and tell them to shut up. nine0023

NOTHING you can do, NOTHING you can have, and because this UNIVERSE is my witness, there is NO ONE you can't become if you believe in yourself! If you believe anything is possible, guess anything is POSSIBLE! When you change your faith from limited to unlimited…. Your potential is limitless.

Imagine what you could achieve if you lived your life as if NOTHING was possible. As if MIRACLES is a standard need of every day. As they say:

“When there is no enemy inside, the enemy outside cannot harm you.”

When there is nothing to hold you inside, there is nothing outside to hold you back. Your whole life will change the very moment you decide to change your thinking. The moment you decide to see everything as a gift. When you MAKE A DECISION to see all circumstances and challenges as a blessing, not a curse. When you start to realize the fact that everything is as it should be and fight for WHAT IS, it is madness. nine0023

Relationships. Ticklish topic. But if you always need the other to be happy, to feel complete, then you are always one moment away from a breakdown if that person leaves, or from unhappiness if the relationship doesn't work out.

I am not suggesting avoiding relationships. There is no greater power on this earth than LOVE and connection. I'm talking about those who can't LIVE if they don't have a relationship. Those who will be with anyone, including everyone who is not the same, just so as not to spend a single minute alone. nine0023

I AM speaking to develop enough mental strength to reach the point where you don't need others to make you happy. You are just as happy being single as you are in a relationship.

This is what controls most people on the planet. Can you guess what it is? …MONEY!

This does not mean that you should not want abundance. This does not mean that money is evil. You know as well as I do what great things you can do, and you know the people you can help with money. This means don't let money control your decisions. nine0023

If you choose something ONLY based on how much money is involved, you simply made the wrong decision. What you will find is that when you follow your heart and behave with the intention of SERVING others, giving your best to others - EVERY TIME you follow your intuition and truly GIVE from the heart - then the money will come and it will be so much more than if you were just chasing money for the sake of money.

So, challenge yourself to live the life you want to live. Free from ANYTHING's control. Find your freedom. LIVE FULLY! nine0023

Find your freedom and live life to the fullest every single day. Click to tweet

First dance at the wedding: 5 basic rules

The couple's first dance is one of the highlights of the wedding day. Have you already decided what your first dance will be? We will tell you about the basic rules for preparing it, so that it is easier for you to think over and stage your personal presentation.

Rule 1. Choice of dance.

Classic waltz, sensual tango or incendiary rumba? Or maybe rock and roll with acrobatics? The choice of dance depends primarily on your preferences. Is it worth taking someone else's dance as a basis and copying it? On the one hand, this will save you from unnecessary trouble, because you don’t have to invent anything. On the other hand, the dance of lovers is a kind of dialogue, a very emotional moment that should reflect your feelings for each other, which means that the dance should be special, only yours. nine0023

Do not forget about other nuances that should be taken into account so that the dance harmoniously fits into your holiday: the age and status of your guests, the scenario of the celebration and the features of the venue. Analyze how much space you will have for the dance, what kind of flooring is on the floor of the hall or restaurant, how far away the guests will be from you - all this is important for preparing for the first dance.

In addition, it is worth considering your physical fitness: the more difficult the dance and the less experience you have, the longer it will take to prepare it and the greater the risk that something will go wrong at the wedding. nine0023

Regulation 2. Preparation.

As a rule, brides and grooms who are not professional dancers need at least a month to learn the dance (taking into account that you will rehearse 2-3 times a week). If you have been dancing for a long time, it is possible to stage a wedding dance in 3-4 lessons.

Rehearsals (at least the last ones) should be done in clothes and shoes similar to those in which you will perform on your wedding day. Only by trying to perform a dance in wedding-like outfits (the groom in a suit, the bride in a long puffy skirt and high heels), you will understand how comfortable you are. Perhaps you will have to change outfits for the ceremony to others? nine0023

Rule 3. When you need a choreographer.

If you want to do a really good dance and impress your guests, or if you are planning to prepare a complex dance with many elements, you will definitely need a choreographer. A professional will think over the dance together with you, show the correct movements, evaluate how impressive your performance looks from the outside, and tell you how to move so as not to turn your back on the guests. In addition, classes with a choreographer take place in a dance hall, where it is definitely more convenient to rehearse than anywhere else. And, finally, dancing in front of a choreographer, you will quickly cope with embarrassment and get used to the idea that your loved ones will look at you on your wedding day. nine0023

Rule 4. Selection of music.

Having decided on the dance style, choose a composition for it. It can be a song that is iconic for you or one that is more suitable for dancing; pop composition, classical melody, soundtrack from the film, instrumental version of the hit. Or maybe you want the musicians to perform the song for your first dance live? Choose one song: the fashion for mixes of several songs and dance styles, when couples started dancing merrily after a waltz, is a thing of the past. nine0023

The main rule is that the composition (and therefore the dance) should last no more than 3 minutes. This is just the time during which you will not have time to get tired, and the guests will not have time to distract from your dance for something else.
