What Are the Top Dance Styles for Your Wedding First Dance?
The foxtrot is all about smoothness, as this progressive dance is characterized by long, continuous flowing movements across a large dance floor. This dance style can be best described as ‘jazzy’ and ‘sophisticated,’ as it offers an upbeat approach to a first dance!
If you are looking for a more classic approach to your first wedding dance, the waltz offers an elegant and glamorous style you will love. This smooth and subtle dance involves lots of “rise and fall” action, as the couple glides together with grace and poise.
If you are looking to spice up your first wedding dance, one excellent choice is to focus on salsa! This style of dance involves lots of different movements, as couples will do tricks, spins, and much more as they dance the night away. This style is a bit more difficult to master, so we suggest that you take advantage of our adult dance lessons as soon as possible!
Merengue takes a similar approach to salsa, but it can be much easier to master for many. This style of dance involves numerous easy footwork patterns, lots of turns, and many wraps for those embracing moments between the couple.
