Taking First Dance Lessons for your Wedding? Here are Some Couples Who Nailed it!

Alana & Cam perform a Bolero Rumba during their wedding reception at Cowbell Creek on the Gold Coast

Alana and Cam spent so much time perfecting their wedding day first dance and they absolutely nailed it! Performing a Bolero / Rumba during their reception at Cowbell Creek on the Gold Coast.

After numerous dance lessons with Let’s Dance Studios they wowed their reception guests while sharing their first dance to Baby I Love Your Way by Big Mountain.

“We went about wedding planning with a traditional approach so of course we decided to learn choreography for our first dance. My dad is a good dancer so I knew he would love it and we liked the idea of putting on a ‘show’ for our guests.”

“After reading many reviews I contacted Let’s Dance Studios. Mark, the owner, was our teacher/choreographer. He was pleasantly surprised by our song choice (which he’d never choreographed to before) and told us we would be dancing a Bolero/Rumba.”

“One of the best parts was the quality time learning & laughing together as we spent a couple of hours each week practicing during the lead up to the wedding.”

“Finally the time came to dance! It was nerve racking, but once we started it was so much fun! Unfortunately the music cut out 3/4 of the way through, but we played it cool. Our guests were so surprised – they loved it!”

“I’m so glad we decided to do the dance. It was such a fun part of wedding planning. We also got some amazing photos and video that we’ll cherish forever.”

Laura & Bede perform a traditional bridal waltz during their wedding reception at Brisbane Racing Club

The first dance is always a big moment for any bride and groom. Often the popular song of the moment is used but for Laura and Bede they not only reached back in time for their track but they performed a traditional bridal waltz as well.

I really enjoy it when the guests are asked to surround the dance floor to take part in this moment instead of staying seated at their tables. If you look closely you’ll see the bride’s mother shedding a tear.

Laura’s parents, Steve and Linda, did their first dance to Moon River 35 years ago at their own wedding. Laura and Bede selected this song for their first dance as a tribute to the bride’s parents.
