The first wedding dance is a beautiful statement that has roots going as far back as the institution of marriage itself. If nothing else, the sheer longevity of the wedding dance tradition speaks to its credit. In short: wedding dances are fun, powerful expositions of a couple’s dedication, partnership and teamwork! One of the questions I’ve heard students ask during our first wedding dance lessons is “Is there any history behind the first dance?”
I love the people want to know what sort of tradition they’re a part of, so I figured I’d answer that question today!
