The Importance Of The First Dance

You’ve dreamt of your wedding your whole life. You’ve thought about the dress, the food, the venue, your bridal party, the special person you would walk down the aisle to marry, and of course you’ve thought about the first dance. The first dance is one of the many moments during your wedding when all eyes will be on you and your spouse.

Make the most out of your moment by taking ballroom dancing lessons and planning your dance. For your first dance, you don’t want to just sway to the music, you want to glide across the dance floor!

Arthur Murray Dance Center wants to see you have the dance of your dreams on your wedding day. We can offer private dance lessons for you and your future spouse to plan the perfect dance for your big day. We believe there are many reasons you should take dance lessons for your wedding, but we’ve included the top four reasons for your here.

Bonding Time

Planning a wedding is stressful. It’s easy to reduce your relationship with your future spouse to conversations about what kind of linens you want for the tables and what appetizers will appeal to the majority of your guests. Dance lessons will allow for some time with just you and your significant other to enjoy each other, and to learn something new together.


Marriage is a partnership, as is ballroom dancing. Ballroom dancing lessons will engage you and your partner in a way that will encourage teamwork and partnership. Ballroom dancing will bring out both your strengths and weaknesses, and it will give you the perfect opportunity to work with your partner in a way that will build up your relationship.

All Eyes On You

Your wedding dance can be one of the more uncomfortable wedding traditions, but it doesn’t have to be that way! With all eyes on you, you don’t want to be unprepared and shy when it comes to heading out to the dance floor with your spouse. Get the confidence you need with dance lessons and a planned dance to ensure your first dance will go the way you’ve always dreamed it would.

A Memory For A Lifetime

You want your first dance to be memorable. Your wedding day will go by in a blur, spend some time thinking about a memory that will last a lifetime. Take this opportunity to learn a special dance that you and your partner will be able to remember for the rest of your lives. A planned dance is also something that you can share on every anniversary to always remember an element of your special day together.

At Arthur Murray Dance Center, we want you to have the wedding of your dreams. An important element for that to become a reality is to plan for your first dance as a married couple. Sign up for your ballroom dance lessons, and you’ll receive 25 percent of your first dance package! Contact us today!
