Get out your Dancing Shoes

Designing, choreographing and learning the detailed moves for a First Dance are not easy for everyone. The work required will bring you both closer together and ultimately entertain your family, friends and invited guests as you set the tone for your wedding reception!

Lot’s of work, fun to do and a solid time commitment. Sam & Rhaya are truly a lovely couple! It was such an honor to photograph their big day for them! From the engagement photos to the wedding Sam & Rhaya were a fun and energetic couple full of love and compassion for one another! Fun fact of the evening, when they first met Sam wasn’t a dancer! Now after 3 years they both are professionals and dance with the Arthur Murray Dance Studio and wow does it show. I hope everyone enjoys this first dance video from their wedding at the Canyon Crest Country Club.

 

Choregraphy?

If choreography and upbeat music fit your vision for your first dance as husband and wife, then this one’s for you. Many couples opt out of the traditional first dance to make a grand entrance that engages their guests and gets things moving.

Emotionally charged and choregraphed, this couple pulled out all the stops using a live rendition of Con Te Partiro (Time to say goodbye)

Anything goes!

Is your song an upbeat rock tune, a hip hop dance tune, or an old classic? Work it in with choreography that’s both simple and engaging. The idea of the non-traditional first dance is to make it fun and memorable for you both.

Another plus for the non-traditional first dance is it doesn’t require skillful use of your feet. There’s more flexibility to be silly and just let loose with this dance. You can go with twirls, dips, old school moves or anything else that will help you enjoy the moment.

Whether you’re thinking ABBA, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Michael Jackson,  Pink or James Taylor, there is room for your favorite song in your evening. With a little planning, some creativity and the help of a choreographer, you’re on your way to creating a first dance to remember.

Happy Planning!
