5 reasons you should learn to dance for your wedding day

Bridal & Weddings

While it might seem like you've already got so much to do in the lead up to your wedding day, from choosing a wedding reception venue, organising catering and décor, flowers, how you're going to get there as well as seating plans and the guest list - it's definitely worth making time to organise dance lessons to prepare for your first dance.

You want the wedding day to be perfect, and getting that first dance right will be a memory for both of you forever. There are plenty of benefits to dancing, and with MarShere Dance Studios to help you it's also easy to start! Whether you want to choreograph a dance specifically for the special occasion, or just to pick up more skills, here are some reasons to take lessons for your big day!

Skip the awkward swaying

For many adults, learning to dance was something we did once in high school for a debutante ball or never at all. We have memories of swaying awkwardly during a school dance or the Blue Light Disco to whatever slow pop ballad was popular at the time or hanging out by the wall with our mates. But the thought of needing to dance in front of our friends and family never crossed our mind until wedding planning happened.

For some couples that realisation is the push needed to start lessons for your wedding. It doesn't need to be a fully choreographed spectacular, but having a few moves that can be linked together in time with the music and a clear idea of when to start and finish will give you all the confidence you need.

Create the opportunity for beautiful wedding photos

Are you looking for the perfect photos to add to your wedding album? Have you seen beautiful posed photos with a couple mid dip and wondered how they can look so effortless? Learning how to dance for your wedding has the added benefit of helping you learn how to hold your bodies to look graceful in photos and videos. We can choreograph a range of dips, leans and lifts that will look stunning on the day and bring a smile to your face for years to come when you look at your wedding photos.

Stress relief from wedding planning and life in general

It's no secret that many couples find wedding planning stressful. From decisions needing to be made on everything, budgets to be adhered to, issues with vendors and expectations from friends and family it's no wonder we often hear from couples how coming to a weekly dance lesson gives them an hour each week to decompress, turn off their phones, ignore work and life pressures and focus solely on learning their wedding dance as a couple.

Get confident

Being prepared, helps you both feel more confident. During your first dance, all eyes will be on you and your partner and if you don’t feel comfortable with your dance skills, it will just add to your stress on your big day. Like the saying goes, “practice makes perfect”, our qualified (but more importantly; fun) teachers will build a routine to your skill and comfort levels and help you rehearse it to build your confidence levels each lesson.

Develop a skill for life

Dance lessons will also prepare you and your partner for other social events in the future. Whether it is other weddings or a holiday party, there will be many situations where having some dancing experience with your partner will come in handy. Dance lessons are an investment in your wedding that will actually be useful after the day itself.

At MarShere Dance Studios, we specialise in creating stunning wedding dances choreographed to fit with your wedding theme and skill levels – we offer Private and Group Wedding Dance instruction. Our fun and friendly teachers will help you feel confident, forget the pressures of the day and simply dance.
