Wedding Songs For Dancing

Choosing a song

Pick a song that is meaningful to both of you. Did you share a romantic moment to a special song? What love song was playing in the background on your first date? What song brings tears to your eyes or gives you butterflies? What song inspires thoughts of the one you love? The music you choose will determine the type of dance that is appropriate. If you are undecided, your instructor can demonstrate a variety of dance styles and provide a list and samples to listen to in class. Knowing which styles of dance you prefer can help you decide on the song. If you are unfamiliar with dance styles you may simply want to imagine the mood you want to feel and project as you are dancing. Do you want your dance to look simple and elegant? Classic and traditional? Peppy and cheerful? Sensual and romantic? Elaborate and Showy? Share your vision with your instructor.


"Wedding Appropriate" Songs
Most Wedding Dance Song lists are based on popularity alone. Often times couples will chose a song they love without considering the lyrics. Examples of this type of song are the song from "Titanic" and "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston. It is a beautiful song and a popular choice for weddings. However, they contain lines like, "My heart will go on." and "I'm not what you need. These forsee the end of the relationship song and therefore are innappropriate. This list is a work in progress, please feel free to email us with any songs you would like to suggest! While we do have some of these songs in our collection we definitely recommend bringing in the music when you come to class.

It's your dance, have it your way!

Never let anyone tell you not to dance to a specific song. You pay dance instructors to teach you how to dance. They can tell you if the song in question is easy or hard to dance to, that is part of our job. It's Your Wedding!
