A tradition at every wedding is the first dance for the bride and groom.Waltz Wedding Dance Lessons

Often times, this dance occurs right after dinner, when drinks are flowing and your guests are mingling with each other and having a good time. The lights will dim and the disc jockey will make the announcement that the formal dance is about to begin, catching your guests' attention and turning all eyes to the dance floor. But typically, your guests gaze on for a moment before continuing their conversations. So why not wow your guests with your first dance as a married couple and make it certain that you and your spouse are truly the center of attention for the entire night?

And better yet, while your finished routine will have the attention of your wedding guests, taking dance lessons as a future husband and wife in the weeks leading up to your wedding can also be a great bonding experience for you and your soon-to-be spouse. Wedding dances can be choreographed by your Arthur Murray dance instructor typically over a series of weeks.


While dance lessons at Arthur Murray DC studios are ideal for future spouses, they can also be a valuable bonding experience for any couple or individual looking for a fun activity to socialize and stay active. So whether it's the exclamation point you want to put on your first dance as a married couple or just an activity to get you out of the house and off the couch, ballroom dancing lessons are an ideal choice. It's exercise, it's fun, and it's a great way to learn something new. The waltz is just one example of the many different dance steps and routines that can be learned through a dance class at Arthur Murray DC studios.

Your Wedding Reception: Choose the Right Song for Your First Dance

Plan out all the steps to your first dance and wedding song!Wedding Dance Lessons

If you or or someone you know is planning a wedding, you're aware that there are many things to consider and remember to do. While booking the reception hall and choosing the perfect church, minister, caterer and florist are high on the list, there are also some fun and sentimental details you'll have to take care of as well.

One of these activities is choosing the perfect song for the first dance between the bride and groom. Hand in hand with this is the possibility of taking some dance lessons, specifically wedding dance lessons.

The song that a couple selects for their wedding first dance will likely be one that has strong sentimental value already.

It should be fairly easy to narrow down the song selection to the top two or three candidates. From there, play the songs together and look into your hearts. You'll find that you'll naturally gravitate toward the song that you both feel most deeply connected with. Consider years down the road -- which song will still capture the feeling you'll want to remember most about this new beginning, this new chapter in your life?

While you're selecting songs for your wedding, you might also want to consider looking into some wedding dance lessons. Why not make that first dance (and all the others) perfect in yours and everyone else's memory? Since you'll likely be preserving it on video, wedding dance lessons could help you make sure that first wedding dance unfolds as you'd like it to -- with grace and ease, in a way that you and your spouse will hold as a cherished memory.

Learn with a respected and trusted dance school like Arthur Murray DC if you're in the Washington DC area. We offer wedding dance lessons for your first dance and father/daughter wedding dance lessons. It could make all the difference in feeling confident and in-the-moment during your first wedding dance.
