Make Your First Dance Fabulous

There’s nothing worse than watching a first dance that simply involves swaying from side to side in a circle. You don’t have to learn choreography like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire to make your first dance fabulous. Learning a few simple steps will keep both you and your guests entertained.

One of the most commonly used dances for a first dance is the Waltz. The basic steps are simple to master and just by adding a few extra techniques you and your future hubby will look like ballroom masters. I found a great series of videos, and while they won’t replace what a formally instructed class can offer, they are a good alternative if your budget won’t allow for lessons.

The Waltz series can be found here on Monkeysee.

You might also consider the Fox Trot.

Now we can’t forget that we are located in the Country Music capitol so leaving off the Two Step would be nothing short of a tragedy. Here is a great basic video for beginners.

Once you master the basics, you might want to add some flair you can learn in this video. The quality of the video is no where near HD but the techniques appear to be quite solid.
