Our first dance song will be Lee Brice’s I Don’t Dance (ironically). I honestly don’t want our first dance to be just some back and forth swaying. I’d like some kind of box step. But I don’t want anything super choreographed. I’ve seen choreographed first dances, and they usually come off really cheesy. A grad school room mate of mine married her dance partner from competetive ballroom dancing, so of course they choreographed theirs.
I just got off the phone with a ballroom dancing studio in town, and the guy on the phone mentioned a $60 introductory rate for 3 lessons. Ok, pretty reasonable. Then he went on to mention that there are bridal packages of 5 hours and 10 hours, and he said “I suggest the 10 hour package so you can really get your dance down.” Of course it was $250.
And I’m sitting here thinking… do we really need 10 hours of dance lessons? Getting my fiance to go to ONE dance lesson is going to be difficult, let alone 10. What the heck kind of a dance will we be doing that requires 10 hours of practice time and instruction? And this was one of the cheaper packages in town.
Did you get dance lessons? Are they even worth it? I’m really tempted to just watch YouTube videos and practice at home.
