- Wedding: April 2017
At our wedding we put together a basic dance using youtube! Just a basic step pattern and some spins and dips (we worked out a pattern for the verse and chorus and repeated it). Neither of us are dancers and it worked great. We didn’t dance to the entire song though as we didn’t really have enough moves to fill it up, halfway through we motioned for everyone to join us and that worked great too.
We’ve just started doing ballroom lessons though and I wish we had done it before the wedding! A couple of hours a week for five weeks will definitely be time for you pick some stuff up if not learn a whole dance. My husband and I have only had 3 x 1.5 hour lessons and we’ve already almost got the hang of a whole waltz. Note that waltz music is in 3/4 time though so if your song is in 4/4 it won’t work with that. Bring the song along to the lessons and ask the teacher what dances it might lend itself to.
