In preparation for your wedding day, it’s important to know many details. Before you come into your first lesson, you’ll want to know the size of the floor you’ll be dancing on, what song(s) you’ll want for the first dance or wedding reception and other details.
We’re here to help you every step of the way…
The type of dress you wear sometimes can affect what dance moves you can or can’t do. Strapless, a heavy weight, different styles of sleeves, and the length of the gown can all affect your movements. We’ll make sure your choreography suits your dress and style. If you don’t want your fiance to know what your dress looks like, we’ll keep it confidential.
The type of shoe you wear is extremely important for your wedding day. You want to pick a shoe that expresses your style and will make you happy on the day of your wedding. We recommend a shoe that fits to your foot and is very flexible like your foot, unless you need extra support. You don’t want your shoe falling off or forcing you to fall down. Also, unless your dress has been taken up a lot, you’ll want a shoe with a higher heel to avoid tripping or your soon-to-be husband stepping on your wedding dress. (Most ballroom dance shoes have a 2.5″ heel.) At your lessons, you’ll want to practice in a similar shoe or the shoes you’re wearing for the wedding.
We recommend to first pick a song or a few songs that have a lot of meaning for both you and your significant other or parent (Father/Daughter & Mother/Son dance). We can then show you the style of dance that goes with each song. If you need help, we can guide you with our extensive collection of music.
