Your Wedding Dance: The 1st Dance to Begin Your New Life Together

Ben De La Vega has been teaching future husbands and wives to dance for 21 years. Mr. De La Vega can help you with anything from a basic Waltz or Rumba that moves around the floor and ends with a romantic dip, to a fully choreographed routine to your wedding song.

For most couples their wedding day is considered the most important day of their lives. As technology constantly improves, more and more couples are having their most cherished memories documented on video tapes and DVDs. With the proliferation of the internet and the simplicity of video sharing, a couple can share their special day with people all over the world. The highlight of any reception and the image most guests will remember is that of the first dance.

Don’t think that dancing is limited to your first dance as husband and wife. Let Ben De La Vega help you have the knowledge and skill to light up the dance floor throughout the reception and any dance floor for the rest of your lives. The romance doesn’t end after the wedding! Learning to dance will be the gift that continues to give at each special occasion or anniversary.

Here are 6 Useful Tips to Getting Prepared for a Wedding Dance

  • Don’t wait until the last minute. Learning to dance well takes time. Many couples start to prepare for their first dance six months, to a year in advance, although you may be surprised with what our couples have accomplished in a few short weeks.
  • Have a few choices in mind for the wedding song. If you have a specific song that you would like to use for the wedding please bring it to your first lesson, so your instructor can teach you the appropriate dance for your music.
  • Have the appropriate music.  Have music that you can dance to.  Do not use a Cha Cha tempo or Bolero and try and dance a Waltz,  especially, if you have never danced before. Be aware that not every wedding dance will be a Waltz. Most songs that couples bring into the studio range from being a Rumba or Foxtrot, to even a Swing or Salsa. And don’t limit yourselves to one dance for the wedding. Be prepared for a variety of dances on your wedding day.
  • Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to the ones that you will be wearing on your big day, preferably dance shoes,  shoes with straps, or soft sole shoes with a suede bottom.
  • Be patient when learning to dance. As time gets closer to the wedding, couples have more stress in their lives than they have ever experienced. Remember, dancing is a great time to just have fun and relax.
  • Be consistent with all of your appointments (private lessons, groups and practice sessions). The more often a couple is able to come in, the less review there will be on each lesson and the more they will be prepared for the wedding. Group classes and practice sessions help solidify the information received on private lessons, making the private lessons more efficient.
