Ballroom Dance Tips For Your Upcoming Nuptials
Nervous about your wedding dance? Here are some tips to de-stress those nerves before your wedding dance!
If you and your beau have chosen ballroom dancing as your first dance, you’ve made a wonderful choice! Graceful, beautiful and very intimate, ballroom dancing is a great way to express your love for one another in front of all your loved ones.
So what tips do newly-weds need to keep in mind for the perfect dance?
Practice, Practice, Practice!
Practice makes perfect – or even close to it! Schedule a few days in the week to practice the ballroom dance of your choice with your partner. You have to be familiar with the way your partner moves to produce synchronize movements, so definitely put that in your weekly schedule!
Maintain Poise At All Times
Sure your wedding dress weighs heavy and the tux can be pretty claustrophobic too, but luckily, ballroom dancing isn’t that hard. All you have to do is keep your shoulders and chest down, keep your core steady and firm and keep your hips upward while you sway across the room.
Follow The Nose!
In ballroom dancing, it’s all about posture and direction. Ideally, your nose should point in the direction your toes turn to. With enough practice, you and your partner will be able to coordinate these movements. Remember to turn your face when you turn your feet!
Take a Class
You can practice ballroom dancing on your own but investing in a class is much better! You and your partner will have fun learning together and not to mention, you’ll be trained by a professional who will get your ballroom dance game right.
Take It Slow
Another very important tip for you newlyweds – bring a change of shoes when it’s time to do your first dance! Ballroom dance shoes are usually close footed and slightly heeled but comfortable. Swap your wedding shoes for some comfy ballroom ones before taking the floor.
