__Bring your song on iPod, phone or CD. Tell us your song in advance and we’ll make sure we put it in our collection just in case you forget. If you need help choosing a song we’re happy to help!
__Bring your shoes or something similar. You’d be surprised how much of a difference your shoes can make while dancing. Plus if you break them in before the wedding day you’ll avoid blisters.
__Bring a suit jacket to your lessons if he’ll be wearing one during the first dance. They can be a little restrictive but once you’ve danced in one it’s no big deal.
__Know the dimensions of your dance floor and where the guests will be during the first dance. We need to make sure all your moves fit in your dance space.
__Know the tentative order of events (ex: dancing before or after dinner) This way you’ll know when you can sneak away and practice a couple steps and your dip in that amazing dress we didn’t get to rehearse in!
__Schedule your lessons in advance so you get the days and times that are most convenient for you both.
__Be sure to bring a video camera (or phone) so you can record your new moves. Having a video makes it much easier to practice at home between lessons!
__ Schedule a time to practice with each other between lessons! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking you to log hours of practice every week. I recommend putting on your song and dancing to it ONE TIME every day you see each other. For people who travel for work this may only be once or twice a week. But even the smallest amount of practice will keep it fresh!
