So we picked out our "first dance" song–Tim McGraw’s "it’s your love". The acoustic, not the duet. We’re not into country at all, but it’s the first song we ever danced to. Cute, right? Mush mush. Anyways, we want something choreographed so we aren’t doing the inevitable clutch and sway. We’re thinking a tango. how do you bring them both together? I was thinking we’d clutch and sway for about a minute, then have the music change and us do something choreographed to signal a change in dancing, like a twirl or something. I took tango a long time ago, eek.

Hmmm…maybe clutch and sway to one song, and then fade it into your first dance song and change to your choreographed number? Also, how do you pull it off? Practice, practice, practice! Good luck!

The Fi lives 12 hours away…we’re going to youtube it together! Eek. Dance lessons are kinda pricey though, but honestly, we don’t have the time!

I’ve done all sorts of ballroom and swing dancing, and that song, while gorgeous, is unfortunately not a tango! I would suggest you guys try out a rumba. It’s one of the easiest ballroom dances to learn, because the basic is a box step. The rhythm is slow, quick-quick, slow quick-quick (a slow takes up two beats and a quick takes one beat, so in total the basic takes 8 beats or two measures of music). It’s also an easy dance to do turns in.
It’s going to be hard to coordinate a dance number because you’re so far apart! But definitely there is hope if you put in a little practice when you do see each other. There are a ton of great resources on the internet…unfortunately I don’t know exactly what they are, as rumba is not my area of expertise. Good luck 🙂
