The Turtles – So Happy Together 

This song has great lyrics and a very nice beat. We find that our wedding dance clients have an easy time dancing along to the Turtles. So far we have used a combination of ballroom styles Rumba and Foxtrot. Floor size matters when choosing which dance styles and patterns.

Van Morrison – Moon Dance

This song a faster beat and requires smaller steps. Van Morrison, a great artist has several additional songs that are great for a first dance. So far we have used a combination of ballroom styles Rumba and Foxtrot. Floor size matters when choosing which dance styles and patterns.

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud

In January we posted a blog telling the wedding world this would be the song of the year. As couples continue to visit us we get more request to dance like this video. We use a dance style called Night Club 2 Step for this particular song. This dance style is perfect for small dance floors

98 Degrees – I Do Cherish You

Another great wedding dance song is by 98 Degrees. In this romantic song we can use a few different dance styles. We can either use a Night Club 2 Step or a very slow Rumba. It will depend on what style you prefer for your first dance. This is another appropriate song for a smaller dance floor.

Harry Connick Jr. – It Had to Be You

Hit the dance floor with Harry Connick Jr. for a sensational Foxtrot. Glide across the floor using either Foxtrot and Rumba patterns to this jazzy fun upbeat song. Great for black tie weddings!

Nat “King” Cole – LOVE

Based on the version you may have to slow this one down, but it makes a great Foxtrot Rumba combination. It’s super cute lyrics will have your loved one smiling. This should be used on a medium to large size dance floor. To make it smaller just use the Rumba style dance patterns. We love this song for a first dance.

Bee Gees – More Than A Woman

Looking to head back to the 70’s. This John Travlolta moment will take your crowd back to Saturday Night Fever. This makes a great Hustle wedding dance. This can be used on a large size dance floor or small dance floor.

INXS – Never Tear Us Apart

Nothing wrong with the 80’s. Hit the dance floor with INXS. We used a slow night club 2 step dance style. Great for a small dance floor with limited space

Ben E King – Stand By Me

A perfect tempo for a perfect Rumba. This is one of our personal favorties. It sweet for that couple looking to do something simple with a clear beat to follow. Great for small or large dance floors.
