Learn to Dance for a Wedding

Do you have a wedding coming up? Does the thought of dancing at the reception leave your stomach in a knot? When you attend a wedding, music and dancing are almost always guaranteed, no matter what culture or type of ceremony it is. Whether you are the best friend, sister, brother, cousin, aunt, uncle or even the bride or groom, you will be expected to dance.

Even if you have two left feet and find it difficult to follow a rhythm, there is no escape from dancing at the wedding. The wedding reception is where the bride, groom and their respective families and friends will come together and participate in various dances. These will typically be the first/bridal dance, the father/daughter dance, the mother/son dance, the parents dance, the dollar dance and general dancing. Everyone will be expected to dance in some way or another.
