When planning out the important details of your wedding, your first dance song can be a big decision! This song is often decided on through nostalgia, and receives the coveted title of “Our Song.” What some couples seem to forget is whether or not they know how to actually dance to it! If you aren’t a dancer, or aren’t into holding onto the other’s hips and shoulders while swaying back and forth (a la middle school dance style), we have a solution.
To avoid potential embarrassment from taking a tumble on the dance floor, many couples choose to take a few dance lessons to make the first one unforgettable. Enlisting the help of a professional can help you nail that slow dance, or even surprise guests with a choreographed number!
