Holiday Wedding Dance

A holiday wedding can be a great way to utilize beautiful decorations, cozy weather, warm attire and fun accoutrements – no wonder more brides and grooms are choosing a date in the months of November, December and January for their special day.

Holiday wedding dances can be extra special too!

Just think if you’re not trying to stay hydrated and keep the misters filled you can use the cooler temps to really kick up your heels with a wicked waltz,  jumpy jitterbug, cheeky cha cha or teasing tango.

Also, knowing you’ll be dancing with rain drops or even snow out the windows can give you some exciting choices for songs that highlight this festive time of year.

I had one couple do a romantic rumba where the groom wore a fedora tilting it at his bride and then frisbeeing it off stage and the bride wore long gloves and then sexily took them off drawing them across her groom before he tossed them to his best man.

Another couple getting married around Christmas in the snowy mountains used a traditional song and waltzed around a real decorated tree in the center of their dance floor.

A third couple kissed in the new year as husband and wife dressed flapper-like with an Argentine tango and lots of balloons, confetti and noise makers.

Whatever your theme and wherever your venue, taking a couple of hours to learn to dance together to your special song will make you feel even more fun when you get out onto your dance floor.

This time of year is busy, even if you’re not getting married, so I offer some quick ways to get in a little dancing practice in lead and follow, twirls, movement around the floor and pretty dips.

The majority of my couples start with my two lesson dance special which is $138/couple available on Sunday afternoons.

If they are really pressed for time they do a single lesson for an hour and a half.  Since some of my couples are flying in for just the week or two before, this option is a great way to still get in some practice before the big day.
