We took 2 lessons like 1.5 weeks before the wedding (advice: don’t delay it like we did!) so we could learn a type of ballroom dance that fit our song. We ended up doing the basic waltz which was pretty easy. The lesson definitely helped so we weren’t just swaying around like we were at a high school dance! I would recommend it if you have time/money to spend on the lesson.

my husband doesn’t mind dancing, but i do. i hate it. i feel silly, i’m uncordinated, and to top it off i hate being the center of attention. not only did we not do first dance/parent child dances, we didn’t dance at all at our wedding. i know my husband would have liked to, but he wanted me to be happy and comfortable at my own wedding.

I can’t dance at all. I have two left feet and am afraid of embarrasing myself at my wedding. We decided to take dance classes and I just wanted to learn some steps and now the instuctor is coreographing our whole dance to a waltz! I can’t figure out how we got into this but now we are learning the waltz LOL. I’m hoping I can learn enough to be comfortable and if not we will throw it all and just spin around hehe

@Ngolden1: The lessons helped but we really had to practice almost every day or else you forget! But by the end of the week we had it down so that we could do it pretty much without thinking about it. Now I’m not saying it was the prettiest dance ever but at least we looked like we knew what we were doing. 🙂

Practice dancing can be fun! We didn’t have money/FH doesn’t want to take dance lessons but asked a friend to give us tips. It helps if you have a song that lends itself to a waltz “3/4 beat.” Another thing to try is podcasts and YouTube video how-tos.

is there a place in town where you can go out dancing for fun before? Check with colleges and universities in your area, many have a ballroom dance club that will host weekly dances, often with a basic lesson first. the one in my town is like $10 per week!
