- Wedding: May 2011
Hi, my dad actually approached me about wanting to take dance lessons for our father/daughter dance. Really surprising since he hates dancing and is the “man’s man”. So very sweet though. He obviously wants this to be special. I’ve always wanted to have dance lessons as well (bucket list item) and FI has also agreed to it. So, I’m really excited actually.
However, is this too “formal” for the type of wedding we’re having? It’s an outdoor, intimate garden setting with about 75 guests in Key West. So, the vibe will be very laid back anyway… just wondering if doing the waltz (or whatever) will seem like a “wtf moment” in the grand scheme of things. Really hoping not … because I would love to do something more than sway back and forth like I did at school dances.
Is there a less formal dance that you can learn that would be more fitting for our Key West vibe? And no, we’re not interested in doing an “evolution of dance” type thing (both my men: FOB and FI are too nervous to free-style). And when you go to these classes, do they typically teach you more than one dance? Just don’t know what to expect – or what to ask for! The songs that we’ll be dancing to are somewhat slow (country songs) so tango wouldn’t work. lol!
Your thoughts on things would help! Thanks!!
