Cedar Rapids Wedding Dance Lesson Information


There is nothing like being a lifelong learner. And sometimes learning happens in the oddest places and for the craziest reasons. For instance, have you ever considered taking dance lessons? Probably not, but if your wedding day is fast approaching and you know for a fact that you and your fiance both have two left feet, then your motivation might change really quick. No one likes to be embarrassed but that is exactly where you are heading. However, if you grab the bull by the horns right now, you can do something about it. Taking professional dance lessons will do a number of things for you. First of all, it will help you to gain confidence. Remember, in a class you will be with a bunch of other beginners so you can encourage each other and learn together. Your instructor will make sure that you get plenty of practice time which is important in anything you pursue. Usually, your instructor will come around and dance with you as well to make sure you are getting the lesson right. When you are finished, you can ask your instructor if they think you will need private lessons too. A lot this will depend on whether you want set choreography to your first dance or if you want to be able to dance spontaneously. Classes are the way to go if you want to look like a smooth dancer out there on the floor. You just need to make sure that you find the perfect instructor in the Cedar Rapids area who will be able to mold you and your fiance into a couple who can sashay with the best of them.


You may or may not know of any dance studios or instructors in your area. But in keeping with the idea that you want to make sure that the vendor that you hire is reputable and professional, you can start by chatting with your family, friends and coworkers about any dance lessons they might have taken. If you find someone who has, discuss whether the lessons did them any good. Do they actually feel like they improved quite a bit. If you get rave reviews from someone, then it is time to make sure that you jot the name and contact information down so you can contact them at a later time. Another potential source that is worth checking into are your wedding vendors who are already in the fold. Wedding vendors are usually very well connected with other vendors that provide anything remotely wedding related. You will also want to try to harness the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “dance instructors in the Cedar Rapids area.” You should get back many candidates. Peruse the websites of the instructors and determine whether you feel they should be added to your list. Take the list that you have accumulated and start setting up some interviews.


At each interview, start the conversation by discussing whether you should take private or group lessons. The instructor may recommend that you take a trial class in order to evaluate what would be best for you and your fiance. Talk to the instructor about your fears, if you have any, as to whether you can actually learn how to dance. Talk about the kind of shoes and clothes that would be best to wear when you are at the lessons. Talk about your wedding song. Have you picked it out yet? If not, will the instructor help you with your choice? Discuss whether you should learn choreography or just be able to move naturally to any song played. Do they offer package deals? How many lessons are included in the packages that they offer? How much do they charge and what would the package cost that you are interested in? If you really take a liking to a specific instructor, that can also be a huge factor in your decision making evaluation. We recommend going with the person that you feel will do you the most good while also making the process enjoyable.
