Ideally you would have some basic swing dance skills as you would learn the routines more quickly. However the wedding swing dance programme also consists of instructions for simple swing footwork and rhythms. For a more comprehensive programme to learn the basic skills for your wedding dance then the recommended programme is the Wedding First Dance Programme.

I know that the programme works as it has been taught to thousands of absolute beginners. I have no control over what happens after you buy the programme so there is no guarantee that you will be able to dance if you buy the Wedding First Dance Programme. However, the Wedding First Dance Programme is designed to give you as much help as possible so if you go through the programme as advised by setting aside quiet, undistracted time to practise with your partner, going through all the videos step by step, asking questions in our Facebook group or by emailing info@thedancedoctor.co.uk when you have questions or feel stuck, then you are sure to end up with a simple and beautiful wedding first dance.

If after taking all these steps as described and you can show me that you have done the work in the correct way, asked for help and yet you have not been able to have your desired wedding dance, simply ask for a refund. I will promptly send you a refund, with no hassle, and we will still part as friends.

If you go through the programme step by step, you will be able to carry out simple and beautiful moves that fit in with your chosen song and your personal preferences.

The Wedding First Dance programme teaches you how to fit the simple steps into any song that has 4 or 8 beats. Most songs have 4 or 8 beats. The only songs it will not fit are waltzes, which have 3 beats. Most pop, rock, soul, swing, blues and many popular songs have 4 or 8 beats and the steps that you learn in this programme will fit. If you are unsure about how the steps can fit into your chosen song, just drop me line on info@thedancedoctor.co.uk and I will be pleased to advise.

The Wedding First Dance Programme

Everyone is different so choose a way that suits you best. Here are some options you may like to consider.

Option 1 – Half a day

If your wedding date is very soon, then this is the best option.

Imagine you’re booking an appointment with a private tutor and turning up to the lesson with your partner. So I would l would advise putting aside some quiet time with your partner to go through it all the videos.

The entire Wedding First Dance Programme will take just over 2 hours if you are able to do the programme all in one go. The most important thing is to be undistracted and go through the short 5-minute videos one by one without skipping past any. The programme is designed to take through the process of learning step by step so that the learning process is easy and the result is a beautiful dance. The lessons are easy to do and also easy not to do so make sure that you turn off your phones or any social media distractions in order to make the most of the programme.

 

Option 2 – 5 minutes a day

If your wedding date is still sometime away and you can set aside 5 minutes, this is a good option for you.

Create a regular 5-minute appointment for yourself in your diary. If you miss your 5-minute appointment, one day, you can catch up the next day by go through 2 videos, thus taking up just 10 minutes.

The entire Wedding First Dance Programme will take just three and a half weeks if you are able to do the programme for 5 minutes day

I would advise that you go through the short 5-minute videos one by one without skipping past any. The programme is designed to take through the process of learning step by step so that the learning process is easy and the result is a beautiful dance. The lessons are easy to do and also easy not to do so make sure that you turn off your phones or any social media distractions in order to make the most of the programme.

 

The Elegant Dance

The Elegant Routines videos are simple and elegant ‘done-for-you’ routines that you can copy and adapt to suit your requirements. You can go through these videos anytime. You can go back on different sections again so you can view any parts that need more attention.

These videos include helpful advice and useful tips but are not designed to be a full wedding dance programme with step-by-step instructions. For a fuller programme, the Wedding First Dance programme is recommended.

In a class you will be taught moves that do not necessarily fit in with your song, your ability, your level of confidence or your personal preferences. There will be other participants in the class, which you may find distracting if you are not used to attending dance classes. Dance classes are designed to improve the dance skills of its participants over a period of time and some classes may be very technical and offer complex moves that may not suit your requirements. Lastly the pace of the class may be faster that you’d like as it’s often designed to cater for a wide range of abilities and you may find it a challenge to keep up.

You can learn this in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you. If you are both busy and you can start learning on your own before putting your dance together.

Yes, definitely. The Wedding Dance Programme is designed with absolute beginners in mind. The lessons include down-to-earth easy explanations on why some people have ‘Two Left Feet’ with a simple remedy for this common problem.

As you are in control of your own dance you can pick and choose the moves that suit you best. You can leave out any of the moves that don’t suit you. The video lessons are specially designed for beginners without any previous dance experience and therefore do not consist of challenging moves.

The Wedding First Dance programme shows you how to fit your steps into music of any tempo; fast or slow, or when you want a change of tempo. The skills you will learn will enable you to adapt to your chosen song.

By joining the Wedding Dance Programme and following the instructions step by step you will be able to create a simple and beautiful partner dance. By practising regularly with your partner you will be able to dance as a couple. The more you practise and the more you follow the techniques in the videos, the more connected you will be to each other when you dance as a couple.

I don’t just tell you what moves to use, I show you how to carry them out by using my Five Step System. Using my proven formula, your First Dance will be easy to do and will wow your friends and family.

You will not be limited by or focusing on any of the traditional styles, for example ballroom or Latin styles. The type of dance you will be learning will be a Wedding First Dance, which is much easier to learn and also easier to fit your chosen song.

Absolutely! The Wedding First Dance Programme is designed for beginners who want to learn to dance for their wedding day. You do not need any previous dance experience but you do need to spend about 5 minutes a day to follow through the video lessons in order to create your wedding first dance.
