Me and my Fiance will be starting ballroom classes within the next few weeks. Also his idea, it’s nice when they think about the emotional aspects of each day and take the initiative isn’t it??! We have our first dance, an luckily it fits in with the rumba tempo. I would probably try and find a song so you know what your going in with and can find a style of dance that fits to it

We took a few classes and plan to take a couple more as a refresher (in reality we probably need to releearn everything lol) before the wedding. It was fun and we got to try a few different dance types to see what we liked best.

My mom + her husband did recently. They didn’t learn anything choreographed, just more so they didnt step on each other lol.

My FI’s sisters gifted us with some private dance lessons, which we don’t start until October (for our December wedding). The school specialises in ballroom, but we’ll see what the teacher comes up with once we’ve settled on a song lol.

We took two lessons at an Arthur Miller dance academy. It was SO EXPENSIVE. A fun time, and it gave us some sweet moves to show off, but possibly not worth it.

We took lessons for abt a year now. The first place was a large chain studio which cost a fortune and purposely didnt teach much of anything so you would continue to pay with the hopes of finally learning your dance. So after being lead on by them we finally changed to a private instructor 10 mos ago who taught us a dance choreographed for us.

It has been fun and almost like a date night every few weeks going in for a lesson but I can tell Fiance is burnt out on practicing. We will have a great first dance in 2.5 weeks here but looking back, paying $1950 in total lessons for what will amount to a one min and 47 second dance doesnt seem worth it financially speaking.

But we enjoyed it and are actually relieved that in a few more weeks it will all be over with!

Oh also our song is Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheerhan and our dance is a rumba.

my advice is to start taking lessons early! Starting with our private instructor 10 mos out was really ideal timing
