You and your partner have just recited your vows and promised to love each other for the rest of your lives. The reception is upon you and now comes the festive celebration. Your loved ones are gathered to celebrate your new adventure in life with your soul mate and wonderful traditions are to follow. From that delicious wedding cake to the first dance you and your partner share, you are in for a wonderful time.
Your first dance with your partner is such a personal, romantic and passionate moment. You will both share a dance, your first dance, as a married couple. Surely you have been working on this beautiful dance for months and can’t wait to show off your dancing skills with your partner. Maybe are nervous, but no matter what, you and your partner are going to love this intimate moment and you are sure to put on a show for your guests. Adding some personality to your wedding dance is a great way to kick off the dancing for your celebration.
Here at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, we enjoy the art of dance, especially that passionate dance that a newlywed couple shares. That is why we have put together a few ways to make that first dance especially personal and unique, by adding your own personality into the mix. So, be sure to continue reading for some wonderful insight:
- Movie inspiration. Let’s face it, no matter how much we deny loving those movie musicals, they really are quite catchy. Whether you are completely upfront about it or not, those musical actors sure have some great moves, and those great voices are sure impressive. You can choose your favorite musical film and incorporate it into your first dance, making a big show of it. You can be creative with it and still capture the spirit of the dance. Your guests might even move along in their seats.
- Play with props. Props can almost always make any moment better. Adding some fun props that express your hobbies into your wedding dance is a great way to make it your own and stand out from the run of the mill first dances. If you both love music and play an instrument, you can incorporate some prop musical instruments that fit with your song. Do not be afraid to get creative!
- Throw in a surprise. One of the best ways to make a moment memorable, is to make it a surprise. Start off your first dance with a slower song, embracing each other for a simple, romantic dance. Then, after a few moments of dancing to the slower song, your song can change to a more upbeat song, allowing you a moment to shine. You and your partner can show off those hot dance moves that you learned and your guests will surely be surprised. It will be a dance for everyone to remember.
You can really make your first dance unique and even flashy, by adding your own personality to it. Here at Arthur Murray Dance Studios, we love working with couples to help them create a wedding dance that they can wow their guests with and continue to remember fondly for years to come.
