Tip No 1: Keep your dance to under 3 minutes.
Choreographing a 2.5 minute dance is a lot easier and a lot more manageable than a 5 minute song.
Don't worry if the song you picked is longer than 3 minutes (most of them are ), they are a couple of ways you can deal with that.
You could for example cut the music using a free tool like Audacity if you are using a D.J.
With a band, simply tell them exactly what you are looking for.
A better option in our opinion is to get your wedding party to join you on the dance floor at a specific time. It's easy to organise, gives a smooth transition to the next phase of the evening, it's fun and it looks great.
Tip No 2: Make a plan.
We are not talking about the dance per se yet, but more the overall plan:
Tip No 3: Posture and Smile.
Whatever happens keep a good posture and keep smiling!
This sounds are lot easier than it actually is. It is also the most important thing to remember.
Regardless of what happens on the dance floor, if you are standing tall and smiling you will look good, if you appeared worried and ill at ease you won't look good, no matter how skilled of a dancer you are.
Tip No 4: Take a dance lesson.
Admittedly we might be a bit biased but you will be amazed at what a difference a couple of hours with a choreographer makes. Especially if you are complete novices.
We understand that for some of us, taking a dance lesson might a little out of our comfort zone but the alternative is standing clueless ands embarrassed in the middle of a dance floor with 100 pair of eyes set on you on the most important day of your life.
No-one ever regrets taking a dance lesson.
Tip No 5: Practice.
Once you have learned what you needed to learn, practice!
Practicing will obviously improve your dance but it will also help you grow your confidence and it's fun!
