dance lesson basics

If the thought of cutting a rug in front of a hundred or so of your closest family and friends has you sweating bullets, it might not be a bad idea to look into taking a few wedding dance lessons. Before you hire an instructor, decide what style of dance you want to perform. Will you choose an up-tempo swing number, a spicy salsa, or a classic waltz? (If you're not sure which dance is you, take our quiz to find out what kind of dance suits your on-stage style!) Whichever you choose, there are multiple dance instructors in your area who can help you overcome even the worst case of stage fright. You can take your lessons one-on-one, or take off some of the pressure by signing up for a group class. (Look at it this way: The more people in the class, the better the chance that you won't be the only one with two left feet.) Of course, one benefit to having a private lesson or two can be learning a dance to your specific first dance song, though the cost is usually a little higher. For a lower rate, see if you can talk a few of your couple friends or even your bridal party into going in on a group class together. Even if you can hold your own on the dance floor, a few lessons with a professional wedding dance instructor can be just the trick to wowing your guests with your moves.
