The Ultimate First Dance On Your Wedding Day.
Great Ideas for First Dances!
Have you been nervous about the first dance for your wedding since you became engaged? Here’s some inspirations for your first dance!
Taking the place of the standard “rotate in place” first dance is a creative trend in the “First Dance.” Join Robert and Dorothy on their very first dance together as husband and wife at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.
Planning The Big First Dance… The First Step… “Don’t just tread water.”
As we were in the beginning stages of planning our wedding, like most couples, we wanted it to be the most memorable and important day in our new life together.
While we were dating, we ventured out and took a couple of group dance lessons that met in the evening in a gym of a local church where we lived. It was fun and something to do together, but we were not engaged or even in the wedding planning mode.
But when we did get engaged and began planning our wedding, the thought occurred to both of us that we would need to dance together for the first time as man & wife. After all the careful planning for aspects of our big event, we wanted our first dance together to be memorable and special. It had to reflect our love story.
As we researched for a dance studio, we had only a couple of requirements. First, we wanted personal instruction and didn’t want a classroom with 30 other people. Second, we wanted someone with patience since we both were going to be a work in progress and finally we wanted to feel comfortable with the person who would be leading us through this journey.
We were referred to Francisco Martinez at The Dance Family Studio in Pasadena, CA. He was a Godsend. Not only did Francisco meet our criteria, he actually wanted to know about our love story. Later we would realize that he was absorbing every detail of our story to choreograph our first dance. From our courtship to where and how we got engaged.
Robert & I got engaged on Lake Cuomo in Italy and Andre Bocelli’s “Con Ti Partiro” reflected our love story beautifully.
We would highly encourage any couple to consider creating a memorable first dance that your friends and family will remember forever!
