Interview: Nikki - Take The Floor's teacher for the Yorkshire area gives us her top tips for wedding dances.
It’s been a busy month for Take The Floor wedding dances in Yorkshire as the wedding season starts to kick in. We’ve had couples wanting to learn slow, intimate dances, couples learning more up tempo numbers to get the party going and couples incorporating ushers and bridesmaids into their first dance to make a real wedding dance extravaganza! Here are some top tips for Yorkshire couples who want to make their first dance extra special:
Top tips for Yorkshire wedding dances:
1) Pick a good song – Ideally choose a song that means something to you both but that also has a good, regular beat so that you can easily dance to it.
2) Start your wedding dance lessons early but not too early – It’s good to have your last wedding dance lesson about 2 - 3 weeks before your wedding. That way it's near enough to remember it well but far enough away so that an extra session or half session can be squeezed in if necessary.
3) Practice, Practice, Practice - is very important between your wedding dance lessons to help you feel relaxed and comfortable on your big day. It doesn’t have to be formal practice – just a quick run through while the kettle’s boiling, or just practising the parts of the dance you find trickier.
4) Create lasting memories – Ask your wedding dance teacher for some moves that will make memorable photos – perhaps some lifts, dips turns, anything that makes you both look amazing for that special photo for your mantelpiece!
5) Have fun – often find that wedding dance lessons can be a relief from the other stresses of wedding planning and are surprised how much they enjoy them. Wedding dance lessons give you time together as a couple but also help you to enjoy your big day so much more and give you the confidence to go out and wow your wedding guests.
