He proposed. Congratulations! You have the most amazing venue picked out, your dream gown is being hemmed and the flowers have been ordered. What’s left to do? Why, the first dance, of course! You have a cool youtube-esque idea in mind…start out with the typical “prom sway” and then bust into an unexpected Country Two Step dance. It will go perfect with your rustic theme. The only glitch in your vision for the perfect wedding dance? Your fiance. You know that you need wedding dance lessons, but how are you going to convince him to sign up for wedding dance lessons? Here are a few ways to get your man excited about learning to dance for your big day:
1. Pick out a song he loves. Who doesn’t love to groove to their favorite tune-especially with their sweetie? Finding a song with meaningful lyrics will make your man want to show his love for you on the dance floor. Remind him of the special memories that the song holds for you as a couple and he’s sure to want to share that with your guests.
Maybe your guy is more on the wild side. Let him show off with a solo part in your first dance so he can be the center of attention. Maybe a spicy Argentine Tango or a saucy Salsa will get him pumped about performing in front of friends and family. Your dance will surely be a crowd-pleaser.
2. Appeal to his ego. The last thing that a man wants is to look “stupid” in front of his closest friends and family. This overwhelming fear of not being comfortable and looking smooth on the dance floor will make any man want to take a few wedding dance lessons. Plus, once he discovers that he gets to be in charge on the dance floor, he will keep coming back for more fun! In the meantime, you will learn a hobby as a couple that you can use time and again for other people’s weddings, on date nights to popular Country bars or Latin clubs, and at holiday parties. Wedding dance lessons are also wonderful for relieving those common pre-wedding stresses. When you’re dancing, it’s virtually impossible to think of anything else!
3. Sign him up for wedding dance lessons. Once your guy knows what he’s doing, he will thank you for signing him up for wedding dance lessons. To get started, shop around for a local ballroom dance studio that will choreograph something just for you. No cookie-cutter routine, but a one-of a-kind dance that will really reflect who you are as a couple. Be it simple and elegant or totally unique, you can shine with wedding dance lessons from a ballroom studio that knows what you are looking for specifically.
