Dancing

Okay so my FI and I aren't exactly ept in the realm of dancing.. like real ballroom/swing/etc dancing.  We were trying to decide whether or not to take dance lessons.. it would be an extra cost (we're already over budget and struggling), but I don't desire to look like a high school couple out there, and also for the dance with my dad, I don't know how to dance with him...


Are you gals taking lessons, or know how to dance?  Or just not worrying about it?

I have actually taken alot of ballroom dancing lessons and I'm quite proficient at all the dances.  However, when it came to my own wedding... I just didn't worry about the dancing style.  I didn't want my husband to be stressed about learning a specific dance for our first dance, same goes for my dad.  So... we got out there and did what came natural.  Don't let this worry you.  There are enough things to stress about already :-))

We are not going to take lessons, but were going to do one of those "different" first dances. Were gonna start with Etta James at last and have like 20 seconds of "high school dance" dancing then were gonna make up a funny coreographed dance to Shook me all night long by ACDC.

we are taking lessons. One thing you should look into is if any of your local community centers or rec centers. They often offer beginning ballroom classes for pretty cheap. I just did a quick search for Denver http://www.denvergov.org/tabid/37889/Default.aspx?link=http://www.denvergov.org/apps/recclasses&title=Recreation%20Center%20Classes

Thanks jharkins!  We are actually 50 miles north of Denver, so getting down there is kinda out of the question for lessons, however, I will search for ft collins rec centers and see if they offer anything.  Thanks!

I'm going to be dancing like the nerdy white guy snapping my fingers, biting my lower lip, etc.

Getting dance lessons wasn't in the budget and DH wasn't having it! We were supposed to start off to Etta James "At Last" for about 1 minute and then do a Salsa routine to Fruko y sus Teso "El Preso" for about 3 minutes, but the DJ messed up and played both songs in their entirety.  I taught DH how to Salsa in the past, but he never really liked to practice it, so I just made up our little routine which we practiced a couple days before the wedding and everyone at the wedding thought DH got professional lessons.  I was like, yeah, from me!
