Preparing for The Big Day

A dance to last a lifetime

Whatever your vision, we can help you create the wedding dance of your dreams! Whether you want just a few lessons to make you feel more confident on your special day, or you envision a performance with a little more panache – the professional instructors at Arthur Murray can make your vision a reality. Let us help you put something together that is uniquely yours.

 

Things to consider…

What kind of music will you have at the wedding?

What is the size of the dance floor at your reception?

What kind of movement will your wedding dress allow?

Will you have a band or a DJ?

What shoes will you be wearing at the reception?

Will you have Mother/Son, Father/Daughter or bridal party dances?

 

 

7 tips to get the most out of your dance lessons

  1. Don’t wait until the last minute. We recommend getting started four to six months before your wedding. Your first dance should be one of the most magical, intimate, and relaxed moments of your entire day. You’ll have plenty of other things to do the month before the wedding.  Starting your dance lessons early will allow you ample time to become as comfortable as possible, and is a fun, romantic way to spend time together during the swirl of wedding planning.  
  2. It’s just fine if you haven’t chosen a song. We can help you choose the song that is right for you. Couples will often choose a song based on the dance they like the best. If you have a special song, that’s great!  Bring it with you to your first lesson!
  3. Be patient when learning. Dancing is a great stress reliever and a fun date night, so don’t put too much pressure on each other.
  4. Don’t try to teach your partner. You’ll both have a lot more fun dancing if you let your instructor do the teaching.
  5. Practice in the right shoes. Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to your wedding shoes, to get the feel of how they’ll move.
  6. Be consistent with your appointments. The more often you come in, the less review there will be on each lesson. Plan at least once or twice a week to get the most from your lessons.
  7. Use the classes & practices in addition to your private lessons. Everyone feels most comfortable on a private lesson, but the classes and parties will be closer to what the rest of your reception will be like, and the teachers will be there to help.

 

Learning to dance for a wedding is a special gift that you and your spouse-to-be can give to each other. A couple who feels confident and poised when they dance together will ensure that their very first dance together will be a memory they will cherish forever
