Quotation from "Gift from the Sea," by Anne Morrow Lindberg

"A good relationship has a pattern like a dance and is built on some of the same rules. The partners do not need to hold on tightly, because they move confidently in the same pattern, intricate, but happy and swift and free, like a country dance of Mozart's. To touch heavily would be to arrest the pattern and freeze the movement, to check the endlessly changing beauty of its unfolding. There is no place here for the possessive clutch, the clinging arm, the heavy hand; only the barest touch in passing. Now arm in arm, now face to face, now back to back - it does not matter which, because they know they are partners moving to the same rhythm, creating a pattern together and being invisibly nourished by it." It is the joy of living together in the moment.


If you think that most young couples today dream of their first dance at their wedding as a graceful waltz across the floor, think again! Most of today’s soon-to-be newlyweds are abandoning slow, romantic ballads in favor of something that would have been considered quite shocking not too long ago… A sultry Tango – perhaps one of the most sensual dances in ballroom – or a high energy Salsa are more likely to be that special dance.

One couple astonished their guest with a slow, romantic waltz that suddenly transformed into a professional style CHA-CHA, taking everyone by surprise.  Another started with foxtrot and finished with a rousing Lindy Hop to everyone's surprise.  Recently, a Bride and her father, started the father's dance with a slow nightclub 2 step and then broke into a fun and exciting Hustle.  While the dances changed, one thing that stays the same: it takes three to four months to master the basics to look great on the dance floor for that special first dance and the entire celebration. If a couple’s honeymoon includes a cruise, their memories of dancing on deck will be even better.

There’s even an unexpected bonus to learning how to dance for your wedding. Many couples come back to the studio after their weddings and tell us that they were able to enjoy dancing with uncles and aunts and grandparents for the first time. While they know that many different age groups will attend, couples do not realize that the musical range is enormous. When they know the basics, they can really enjoy dancing to all different kinds of music.”

Wedding programs are designed to help ease the pressure of that "first dance."
