The wedding dance is one of the most celebratory moments in life for bride and groom alike.

You should definitely have your First Dance choreographed because it’s a tradition and it’s a beautiful moment for you and your guests. Not to mention, it gives you and your second half a moment to hold each other and just be alone on the dance floor, in the middle of your reception hall, with all your friends and family watching. But don’t stress… you’ve come to the right place!

The number of lessons you’ll need depends on a variety of factors, such as:
  • Whether you’re dancing to one song, a medley of two songs or a mash up of multiple songs
  • How simple or fancy you want your dance to be
  • If you have previous dance experience
  • Your learning speed
  • How much you’re able to practice at home between lessons, etc.
If we know your details, we can give you an estimate of how many lessons you’ll likely need before your first lesson. At the end of your first lesson, after we’ve had a chance to see how things go, we will be able to confirm or adjust the number of lessons we recommended. In general, couples with little to no dance experience, who want a relatively simple dance to a single song, need 5 lessons to feel happy with their first dance.

As soon as possible! You’ll have more fun and will learn easier if you’re not stressed of time. Plus, the more time you put in, the better you’ll look and the more relaxed and confident you’ll be on your big day!

How soon you start usually depends on how ambitious your dance is. In general, we recommend starting:

  • 2-3 months before your wedding for a simple dance
  • 3-4 months ahead for a more elaborate dance
  • 4-6 months ahead for a fully choreographed dance
Taking dance lessons once a week is ideal, especially in the beginning. This is the best way to retain information and get maximum value from your lessons.

However, once you’ve learned most of your dance, we may choose to do lessons less frequently (every 2-3 weeks). This gives you time to practice at home and to make sure your last lesson is as close to your wedding as possible.

Unless you want to learn a particular dance (Waltz, Tango, Salsa, etc.), we will help you choose a style that’s a good fit for you and your song. For most first dances, we draw moves and inspiration from a variety of dances. We’ll always give you a range of move options—you get to pick the ones you like best!
Nope. If you’re still deciding between multiple songs, on your first lesson, please bring them with you on your phone or other device and we will help you choose.
For your first lesson, feel free to just wear comfortable shoes. If possible, choose comfortable shoes with smooth rather than grippy soles.

On lessons closer to your wedding, we recommend you both bring your wedding shoes for a trial dance run. Of course, you’re welcome to wear your wedding shoes sooner if you’d like more practice in them.

It is your special day so your First Dance can be as long as you want it to be. Just remember, the longer the song, the more dancing! Usually couples aim for 2/2.5 maximum 3 minutes song.
