  • Step 1.

Schedule a dance lesson with your local Chicago dance studio for an introductory dance lesson. Let the dancing speak for its self. Typically in an introductory dance lesson the dance teacher will cover the basic steps of several dance styles. If you and your fiancé find yourselves leaning towards a specific dance style, now you have a start! Ballroom dance lessons are a great way to spend time together all while learning how to dance.

  • Step 3.

Make a list and let your dance instructor check it twice. What makes a good wedding dance song? Something that make you smile from ear to ear when the music plays. If you are not having a good time on the dance floor, neither will your guests. Our wedding dance clients need to look great doing their steps but also feel great when they hear the music. The speed of the music can play a very big factor. Make sure if you dance with a live band that you are dancing to the same speed that your practiced with inside the dance studio.

Pick a song with clear percussion and rhythm so its easy to hear the beat and stay on time while you dance. Sometimes its hard for beginner level dancers to count music without clear baselines in the music. With practice and dance lessons your wedding dance instructor should be able to work with you.
