Wedding Music

At Phoenix Dance Studio we have quite a lot of people come in for lessons especially for their wedding dance. That first special twirl around the floor as husband and wife is something that they want to be remembered for all the right reasons (they looked fantastic) as opposed to all the wrong reasons (they both ended up flat on their backs on the dance floor). From the feedback we get and the recommendations we receive, I think that we’ve done a good job of helping them to look their best as they dance on such a special day.

As couples come in, they are often concerned about their choice of music.

“Is this too weird?”, “Is everyone else using this one?”, “Is this what you’re meant to have at a wedding?” and “Can you dance to this?”

We always say to choose the music that they like and that means something to them, not to worry about other peoples musical tastes and, as we are experienced dance instructors, there isn’t much that you can’t dance to. Some tracks might be more challenging than others, but we can get you dancing to pretty much anything.

I’m sure that I’m not shocking anyone by saying that, usually, the big romantic song of the moment will be chosen by every second couple coming in to the studio for a month or so, until the next big one. For example, when Tom started teaching it was almost always Celine Dion with “My Heart Will Go On” and on, and on, and on. The lady that taught him to dance remembered with a shudder how many times she had heard “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.

There are some great songs that are brought in by couples maybe once or twice a year though, that never go out of style. Here are a few of them.

“Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra

“Let’s Stay Together” by AlĀ Green

“Feelin’ Good” by Nina Simone

“It Had To Be You” by Harry Conick Jnr.
