Pulling off a great first dance

dance art studioI was inspired by this beautiful first dance I saw on YouTube and decided to take some dancing lessons with the fiancĂ©e. Mr. B is a natural athlete, he picked up my sports very quickly when we started dating (scoring him some major bonus points). Dancing wasn’t so much his thing, but you know what, we had a lot of fun together during our lessons, and I truly appreciate how he is gamed for anything.

We asked our instructors, the dance experts at Dance Art Studio to help couples select a dance style to suit their latest contemporary wedding first dance songs. Got a song you want to ask about? Drop us a note (briderella at gmail.com) and we’ll let you know!
