Destination Wedding Dance Tips

Assume You Have A Small Dance Floor

Choose a dance style suitable for a small dance floor. Our wedding couples will choose a dance style like Night Club 2 Step, Rumba, Swing, or Salsa. They take up little space. They are versatile and can be used on a large or small dance floors.

Download Your Song to Your Phone

Make sure you have a backup of your wedding song on your smart phone that can be played. Don't assume you are going to have an internet connection. Sometimes the communication barrier can be challenging, but if you have it on your phone the DJ should be able to plug-in your music.

Know The Surface of Your Dance Floor

Heels and cobble stone do not go hand in hand. Try to make sure you have the right kind of shoes based on the surface of your dance floor. Some couples dance in the sand, others on a pool deck. Just be prepared with an extra set of shoes
