Cool Dance Moves Save $75 and calms nerves before your First Dance
Are you worried about your wedding first dance? Thinking about cool dance moves, but you may not know any to perform as a couple? First of all, how long should your dance be? Well, let’s take a hint from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers — how long were their dances on the big screen? They were very short. Go ahead and guess how short they were. Don’t worry, the answer is below the video. Did you guess?
Three minutes. Yup they never danced more than three minutes. I read a story one time that Ginger’s feet were bleeding from doing so many takes for one dance.
The dance numbers were well polished by the two (Fred & Ginger) skilled and talented dancers with a large background in dancing. Most dancers start dance lessons when they are in grammar school.
Okay, if we take the concepts demonstrated by our heroes — Fred Astaire — Three minutes or longer never happened. It is a general rule of thumb that if you already have your dance routine memorized that you need to practice at least one hour for every minute of dance performance.
Cool dance moves were easy Fred and Ginger because they had the luxury of film and could retake a dance not up to excellence. Based on these generalities here are my suggestions when you go searching for the right dance studio or dancing instructor:
1) The lessons must fit your budget. Price around and do your best to pick the instructor that makes your budget feel good.
2) Keep the music you like, if the song is special to the two of you, then keep it. You can always have the music edited – cut to two or two-and-a-half minutes, and have the tempo adjusted to make you comfortable. No one will know the tempo has been changed.
Most music editing programs can change the tempo of your music up to 15% and the singer will still sound the same — no chipmunks or slurred singing will occur. Also, you will be able to practice to the exact song and time your dance trick and dip to occur at the right time.
3) Give the music CD to the DJ before the wedding, but always bring a back up copy to the wedding. Tell the DJ that you will tell him/her when to start the music.
Here’s another tip for cool dance moves: When you are shopping for a DJ, ask him how much extra he would charge you to edit your music — he might throw it in? It doesn’t hurt to ask.Cool Dance Moves call 407-297-9048 – no text, please. Studio: 407-385-7034 and learn some easy cool dance moves.
