Just when my FI and I had decided that we couldn’t afford dance classes, he got a call from a local dance instructor who said that she would trade private lessons for advertising with his company. Yay! Now we just have to decide what style of dance we’d like to learn. We’d like it to be upbeat and fun, but it needs to be a style that we can become proficient in with time only for four or five lessons.
Any ideas? What style is your first dance going to be?

Ours is going to be more upbeat because we’re doing “Crazy Little Thing called Love”

Is it possible to not really have a style, but just learn to dance better together? The best first dances I’ve ever seen are the ones where couple really look like they’re comfortable together and are having fun. They always seem to be a mismash of steps from all sorts of different dances, but they look fun!
A Fred Astaire studio just opened up by us and it’s owned by a guy who was on Dancing with the Stars a couple of seasons ago. I want to learn to do the jive! HA!

We’re going with a more upbeat song “Brown Eyed Girl” and we are going to take lessons to brush up on our Texas Swing and show off all our twists & turns with our fun first dance song!

We picked our song, and our teacher let us know what styles of dance would work best with it. Gah! Still need to blog about this, because it’s been such a great experience!

Just wanted to say that dance lessons are the best…even if you are on a limited budget you can take lessons at a local community ed or adult ed. Right now my dd, her fi, her fmil, ffil, officiant and his wife plus my dh and I are taking group lessons together. It’s a cheap date night and fun…plus we get exercise and will all look better on the big night.
If you fi is not excited don’t be afraid to push a little. My daughters ffil really really didn’t want to take lessons and now he is having a blast and ready to sign up again. Even the most macho guys have fun!

We’re doing a Waltz, slow, sweet and simple. 😉 But it just depends on you guys, if my Mr was up to it I’d totally do a salsa.
