Whether you live in Charlotte, NC or on the other side of the world, First Dance Charlotte is launching its first online wedding dance course in the summer of 2019 designed specifically for couples who have very limited time and no experience dancing together. Learn how to create a simple, relaxed and romantic first dance even if you are an absolute beginner. This course uses the same methodology and clear instructions that Alex uses in her private, in-person lessons that have resulted in hundreds of satisfied students and five-star reviews.
Anyone who has taken lessons from me knows that I am always wearing sneakers when I teach. What has me excited today is my discovery of an adorable new Keds collaboration with design darlings, Rifle Paper Co. I have long been a fan of Rifle Paper Co. for their beautiful prints and Keds for their comfy, flexible and easy-to-dance-in sneaks.
Once we really got started with our first dance, I realized a lot of things about our relationship - what areas we need to work on, where we are completely in sync, when to let things go, and when to change course when things aren't working the way we wanted them to. Dancing together gives you insight into your relationship and can reveal a lot of things about you as a couple and as an individual. Here are three things, among many, that I learned while dancing with my husband.
My article, Mastering the first dance, on how to match your first dance to your wedding style, was recently published on Charlotte Wedding magazine's Bride+Groom blog! Check it out by following the link below.
Now that spring wedding season is gearing up, many new students will be visiting my home studio for their first wedding dance lesson. Many students ask what they should wear and if they need to bring anything specific to their wedding dance lessons. Besides payment (I accept payment on the day of the first lesson), there is little else you need to bring besides an open mind and a positive attitude.
Very excited to be featured in Emily and Michael's Classic + Elegant North Carolina Country Club Wedding on Style Me Pretty. Captured by the extremely talented Allison Kuhn, Emily and Michael looked breathtaking in their portraits and on the dance floor. Here are a few images of their first dance to Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman."
Remember the very first time you ever slow danced with someone you had a crush on? My first experience slow dancing was at a "Trophy Dance" - an end-of-the-summer celebration and award ceremony put on by the pool and tennis club my family went to while I was growing up. I remember running away and hiding in the girls' bathroom after I danced with the boy I liked to "I Swear" by All for One. Although we were both only seven years old, it still felt like a monumental moment in my life.
