Important Wedding Dances To Practice For

As you prepare for your big day, there are many different dances that you’ll need to practice so you’re ready to dance the night away in celebration of your marriage. Here are just a few of the main dances our team can help you polish in time for your reception:

Your Wedding Day First Dance

Your first dance is a romantic and everlasting expression of your love and commitment — for the two of you and for the special guests celebrating with you.

From a few simple dance steps to get by to a fully choreographed routine, we can help make your first dance as unique as the rest of your wedding.

Father/Daughter & Mother/Son Dances

Father/daughter and mother/son dances are memorable complements to your first dance. Including your parents (or the loved ones filling that role) in your wedding dance is a special way to show your love and appreciation. We’d recommend scheduling a few wedding dance lessons for them, too.

Wedding Party Dance Routines

Looking for something extra-memorable? We can choreograph a YouTube-worthy wedding dance for the whole wedding party, that’s even set to your favorite music. Extend those special wedding day moments with an awesome dance routine you’ll want to relive again and again.

We recommend scheduling your lessons at least one month before the ceremony (and further in advance for more involved routines), so call us today for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Wedding Lessons

From ceremony to reception, your wedding day is a celebration of your love for each other. Everything you’re planning – the venue, flowers, attire, food, music, and more will be a reflection of your style and personality, and your First Dance should be, too! For many couples, however, their First Dance can be a nerve-wracking experience. But after just a few Wedding Dance lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, you’ll have the skills and confidence to wow your guests on the dance floor and create special memories you’ll always treasure. Wedding Dance lessons are also a great way to have fun and relax before the Big Day. Think of it as “date nights”! With all the decisions and deadlines involved in wedding planning, enjoying this time together can help you both de-stress and re-energize, and we guarantee you’ll have LOTS of fun.
At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, our Wedding Dance programs are tailored to you – your style & personality, and your priorities for the music and choice of dance. Our friendly, certified Dance Instructors can teach everything from a few simple dance steps to a fully-choreographed routine for your entire wedding party – it’s up to you!
If you’re reading this now, it’s probably time to get started because the longer you wait, the less time you have to create your dream Wedding Dance! Due to wedding couples’ typically hectic schedules, we recommend getting started at least 5-6 months before your wedding. This will give you plenty of time for scheduling lessons (for you, and possibly your parents and wedding party), and to truly feel confident with your dance. Of course, we can help couples who have less time available, too. Don’t put it off – contact us today to get started.
It all starts with a free consultation at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. We’ll discuss your plans, and learn more about your dream Wedding Dance. We encourage you to bring along favorite songs, pictures of the venue & your wedding attire, examples of dance videos you love, etc. Everything you can share helps us understand your goals for the day, so we can help you create a Wedding Dance experience that will amaze your guests and make your wedding even more special.
We offer special introductory packages that help you create a dream Wedding Dance that’s a great value. Beyond that, we will tailor a program to meet your individual goals and budget. Lessons with just the two of you can range from a few simple dance steps to a fully-choreographed dance. We can include your wedding party, for a YouTube-worthy routine. And including your parents (or special friends or family members who will be standing in that traditional role) in your Wedding Dance can be a wonderful way to show your love and appreciation. It’s totally up to you!
Absolutely! These days, more and more couples are including their wedding party in dance lessons – to create a unique dance routine, or even re-create a famous dance scene from your favorite movie, musical or video! A YouTube-worthy First Dance can be a show-stopping surprise for your friends and family, and will become moments you’ll all want to re-watch, again and again.
Yes! Including your parents (or friends or family members who will be standing in that role) in your wedding dance can make your time on the dance floor extra special, and it’s a demonstration of your love and appreciation for them. While our main focus and priority will be on your First Dance, we do suggest a few lessons for parents if you plan to feature a traditional Mother/Son and Father/Daughter specialty dance during your reception.
We realize that some Students arrive for lessons straight from the office, and others may be dressed more casually for their lessons – either is fine. The most important thing is to wear something comfortable, which allows you to move easily. Of course, you’ll also want to select comfortable shoes. We suggest leather-sole shoes for gentlemen, and a shoe with a back for ladies (similar to what you might wear to go out dancing). If you’ve already purchased your wedding shoes, we suggest you bring them along to your first lesson, so we can help you determine if you’ll be able to dance comfortably in them. Please note that athletic shoes do NOT work well on the ballroom dance floor because they stick, which will make it difficult to move your feet.
While wedding shoes are a beautiful accessory for your wedding attire, they are not always designed for comfort or movement. We recommend that you bring your wedding shoes to your first dance lesson, so your Fred Astaire Dance Studios Instructor can help you determine whether you can comfortably dance in them, or whether you should consider a pair of ballroom dancing shoes for your First Dance and reception. Your friends and family won’t even notice the switch – but you’ll be so much more comfortable!
The number of lessons you’ll want to take depends on the type of First Dance you want to create. Our certified Instructors and Fred Astaire Dance Studios’ proven method of teaching ensure that you’ll learn as much as possible, in the shortest amount of time, with the most retention, and the most FUN. We work with you to create a First Dance that fits your vision, in the amount of time you have available. We can guarantee you’ll feel confident and comfortable on your Wedding Day. In fact, you’ll be on your way to confident dancing by the end of your very first lesson!
Not at all. If you have a specific song in mind, definitely let us know so we can help you select a dance that matches it well – but it’s not required. In fact, when you’re introduced to the different styles of partner dance, you may discover that you really like a dance style that doesn’t match your music! Whatever you decide, we’ll be there to help make your First Dance totally “yours”.
At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, we are experts at all styles of ballroom dance – and can incorporate any one (or more!) of them into your Wedding Dance choreography. From a classic Waltz or Foxtrot or sultry Tango, to a fun & lively Country Western Two-Step and more, our certified Dance Instructors can help!
