Some couples pick a romantic song, others choose energetic song or a mash up starting slow and romantic then breaking into a fast dance or freestyle.
One of the most popular wedding dance styles, the Waltz dance is a superb choice for a wedding first dance. Waltz dance is a 3/4 time rhythm, which differentiates it from other four beat rhythms. Waltz dance is a smooth style dance that moves around the floor in a counter clockwise direction. An additional rhythm called the Hesitation is used in a combination with three or six count patterns in the Waltz dance.
Slow Dance Style
The slow dance is a popular wedding dance style of music and dancing. The slow dance is also a great choice for wedding first dance since they are slow and romantic. There is a music which does not fit into any of the ballroom slow dances: waltz, foxtrot and rumba. These songs are slower than the tempos for the ballroom dance styles.
The Foxtrot dance is a super smooth dance style that moves around the dance floor to four beat rhythm with a combination of six or eight beat patterns. The classic Foxtrot dance style is perfect for a larger dance floor and a smooth medium tempo music particularly for big band style music.
