Origin of the First Dance

Do you want to know the origin of the first wedding dance?

The wedding dance, also called the bridal waltz, is a symbol of the new beginning that is marriage.

The new couple, embraced in their union of love for all to witness, take their first steps as one.

They have promised to face, side-by-side and hand-in-hand, all that lays ahead.  Sharing joys and adversities.

Their two paths have joined.

The wedding dance, also called the bridal waltz, is a symbol of the new beginning that is marriage.

The new couple, embraced in their union of love for all to witness, take their first steps as one.

They have promised to face, side-by-side and hand-in-hand, all that lays ahead. Sharing joys and adversities.

Their two paths have joined.

Traditionally a waltz because 3/4 tempo music and dance has the longest history (in western european culture), many other styles have recently become popular. Tango, foxtrot and quickstep are often presented or adapted, and even the upbeat, less formal latin and swing dances.

Now the choice of music, often contemporary popular music, will lead to the style of dance chosen.

The wedding dance also marks the end of formal proceedings, speeches and such, and the transition to the less formal, more upbeat celebration of the wedding day.

The new couple invite to join them, first their bridesmaids and groomsmen, and then all the guests as the reception blossoms to abandoned merry-making.

The success of this transition from empty to full dance floor often hinges on how comfortable the guests feel to come onto the floor. This in turn depends on how comfortable the bridal entourage feel and look as they are dancing.

The choice of wedding dance style and music has great potential to enhance (or detract from) this transition from formal seated inactivity to joyous, uninhibited movement and sound.

Those first steps as a couple, alone on the dance floor and under the gaze of family and friends, are naturally hesitant and perhaps even awkward.

Sadly this is more so nowadays with the decline in social partner dancing, and since neither partner may have any formal dance experience.

However like many an adversity, this is also a golden opportunity. In fact it does not take much dance experience or tuition to be a better dancer than today’s average. This can be turned to powerful advantage.

With a few hours commitment we can replace that hesitancy and awkwardnes with a quiet confidence to look into each others eyes as you glide across the floor.

We offer gentle, professional guidance on dance styles, patterns and music that work best. Yet the final choices on your special day are yours, and we will honour your wishes.

We specialise in making this important moment look elegant and you, the new couple, feel totally at ease.
