Get Started With A Complimentary Tryout Lesson
The first lesson is complimentary for couples who book it more than 3 weeks (21 days) before their wedding or travel day (in the case of destination wedding)
Please keep in mind that the following topics will come up during our first and successive wedding dance lessons.
It would greatly help if you know the information beforehand but don’t worry if you are uncertain of anything, we can always start working together first. We will be more than happy to help you develop solutions and ideas as we move ahead.
Get Started – Your Information:
1-Both the groom and the bride’s names
2- Contact info: cell phone numbers and e-mails
In case you are also planning a father-daughter dance or mother-son dance, we will also need their names and contact information.
3 – Wedding day
The actual wedding day. Suppose it’s a destination wedding, the departure date.
4 – Music for your dance
A file of the wedding song you will be dancing to and the same copy you will be giving your DJ (often the same song may have different arrangements, singers and sound quality).
Some couples prefer to perform their first dance to a live band, but please keep in mind that live music performances will be different from a recorded copy. This makes it harder to adapt to for beginner dancers and might lead to unnecessary emotional stress on both dancers and create mistakes.
5 – Wedding gown
Once we exchange e-mails, we will ask you to send us an email with a picture of the dress or a link to the page online where it can be viewed.
This is to get an idea of how to choreograph the dance with the dress in mind. Some dresses make certain dance moves easier or harder, and our ultimate aim is to make this safe, easy and pleasurable for both dancers on their wedding day. We will also teach you how to use your dress to make your first dance even more impressive!
It would also be beneficial to bring a similar type of skirt to your classes to practise various techniques. This is purely optional and to boost your confidence on your wedding day.
N.B. If you are worried about your groom seeing your wedding dress, we promise we will keep your secret!
We have also had brides come in for a private class with their actual wedding dress and shoes to try all the dance moves and embellishments. This is entirely up to you and your groom.
6 – Shoes
To get started for your first lesson, please bring any clean, comfortable shoes to dance in because we need to keep the dance floor as clean and dust-free as possible.
Any cleaned dress shoes will work for gentlemen and you similar heel heights to your wedding shoes.
After a few lessons, we recommend starting practice wearing actual shoes. You will get used to your new shoes, break them in, adapt if they were slippery or sticky and get your balance.
7 – Size and shape of the dance floor (sitting arrangements)
We will need to have an idea of the dance floor size and layout to choreograph your wedding dance.
It is also useful to know what the dance floor is made of (wood, tiles, carpeting or stone).
A dance routine that does not cover much space is easier to fit onto a large dance floor than the other way around. If we work on a larger dance routine and the floor is smaller, it will be hard to adjust on the wedding day.
It would also be useful to know where your guests will be located during your wedding first dance so we can prearrange the direction of your dance.
