First Dance AND Second Dance

By yeuca

Can you dance a First Dance twice? You might be saying, “What? Are you insane?” But I am serious. This advice is only for those who are talented and good at dancing, or have great plans for their First Dance. That includes my students who took lessons SERIOUSLY and achieved beyond standard level. Your hard work should be paid off.

Your guests will come to your wedding with no expectations for your First Dance. What kind of reaction do you think you will encounter when you start showing off your FABULOUS FIRST DANCE? Before they go wild and crazy about your First Dance or become mesmerized by your performance, they will probably have moments of daydreaming, or they may lose their senses and ask ridiculous questions like… where am I, who am I? I am sure you will receive exciting comments such as “I wish you could show us your First Dance one more time.” Go ahead and make a plan to show your Second Dance. When you do that, there are a few things you may want to keep in your mind.

  • Show exactly the same choreography. That’s what your guests want.
  • Change music. If you chose a very slow love song for your First Dance, try to pick traditional ballroom dance music with strict tempo this time. Your elderly guests will love it and your dance will look more polished.
  • Second Dance should be danced toward the end of the ceremony. Of course, not right after the First Dance, even though your guests call for an encore.
  • Mistakes are acceptable for the Second Dance, so enjoy yourself and smile a lot. Make eye contact not only with your fiancé but also with your guests.

I guarantee you that the Second Dance is the most enjoyable and memorable dance for you when you look back after the wedding ceremony.
