So, exciting time for us, after a 6 month lack of planning after the engagement, we are finally reserving a place and putting down a deposit. Yay! So I am now starting to think of all the things that need to be done over the next 7 months to pull it off.
Today I am thinking about dance lessions, and I would love to know other people’s experiences with them. I am a mediocre but not terrible dance, and Fiance is a decent dancer. We know very few couples dance styles. I am interested in learning some salsa, the two-step, a little swing, maybe even some disco, and how to handle modern pop and hip hop music as a couple without looking like idiots. Tall order!
So, I guess I am just curious if people thought dance lessons were worth it, if it was fun, if you have advice, etc. Thanks!

If you like to dance, dance lessons are definitely worth it. I personally loved it. My fiance bought us 3 months’ worth of dance lessons (once a week — so 12 lessons) in a small class and (pun not really intended) we waltzed right through them. The beginner’s class was really easy for us, even given that neither of us knew anything about dancing to begin with.
I haven’t had so much fun doing anything since I was a little girl. He, unfortunately didn’t like the dancing as much. I think when I have some more money, I’ll probably get more dance lessons for myself, even if he doesn’t want to come with me. I love being able to dance around and not look like an idiot. And dancing just feels so good!

If you’re looking for couples dancing lesson, I think it’s worth it if you guys enjoy both the lessons and the dance. It would make you feel good on the dance floor and it’s kinda fun. If you’re looking for general dance lesson so you can dance like Beyonce on the dance floor, don’t do it for wedding sake. Do it only if you like to dance. You’ll be very busy and overwhelemed the months leading up to the wedding so it’s worth it unless you enjoy it as a hobby/exercise….
We took dance lessons for our first dance and it was time consuming. We also set high expectations for ourselves so we barely had time to fit everything we wanted to do in the months leading up 2 the wedding. It was still worth it since we effectively wowed our guests. But still, it was not easy work.

For us it was totally worth it. We went to a few group classes, but the one-on-one was well worth the money. They helped us choreograph our first dance and we are SO happy we went, it made the dance interesting & not look like a 7th grade junior high dance 🙂

We considered dance lessons but decided against them because they were too expensive in our area. instead we just practiced on our own. Our first dance was… cute. Some parts looked really good but some parts we looked like we didn’t have any idea what we were doing. If you have the time and money, then go for it, otherwise, it’s only 3-4 minutes of your life and do you want to waste hundreds of dollars for 3-4 minutes?
