A Few Tips to Dancing at Your Wedding
Yes, you might feel terrified at the very thought of dancing publically in front of all your friends and family. Who wants to look stupid on the dance floor? But don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered with these tips to keep in mind.
Choose a song that’s easy to dance to
Look for a song whose beat is clear enough to dance to easily. Whether you choose an old classic or a contemporary song, you need to be comfortable with its beat. Find a song that both of you are familiar with, and which is easy for you to fall in rhythm with. Oh, and while you’re choosing a song, make sure it doesn’t have any inappropriate lyrics or hidden meanings! A lot of songs may sound romantic, but have some dirty undertones!
Make sure it’s a dance both of you can do
It’s possible that one person is a better dancer than the other, in which case the better dancer is going to have to make some allowances and come down to the level of the less capable one. You don’t want to force your partner into learning a dance that’s too complicated for them, only to have them blank on the floor. Go for easy little steps.
Hold a good dance position and don’t sway
Practice beforehand so you know how to hold a proper dance position that allows you to feel connected to your partner when you dance. Plus, it’ll stop you from looking down at your feet, and allow you to have eye contact with your partner. This should also enable you to look great in the photos since you won’t look worried about stepping on your partner’s toes. And don’t sway! That’s just going to give you a very high school look.
Only dance for three minutes
Make sure the dance is under three minutes in order to prevent your guests from getting bored. They want to join in the fun too, so finish your dance within an appropriate amount of time and open up the dance floor to everyone.
Be confident and have fun
Enter the dance floor with confidence. You may not be the best dancer, but it’s still your special day! All eyes are going to be on you, and little missteps you make will probably be laughed off in the spirit of the occasion. The important thing is to stand tall, keep your head up and step confidently to the floor. Let the music play for a few seconds to get you in the zone, and then go for it!
And remember to have fun. The stress that comes with dancing in front of a load of people can make it easy to forget that this part is supposed to be enjoyable and memorable. Enjoy the dance, smile at your partner, and forget about how worthy of a video the dance might be. Lean into the moment and focus on having a good time. The genuine smiles on your faces alone will make it worth It in the end, since they’ll make for the best pictures.
