Your First Dance as Mr. and Mrs.


The band plays your favorite song. Silence befalls the room. All eyes turn to the bride and groom... It's time for the wedding dance... What's your next step?

Now you can capture this very special moment with grace, style and confidence


There is no other moment in life as romantic as the first dance as Mr. & Mrs., and now thanks to video technology, that special moment will be captured with sound and movement for years to come.

Dancing is an intimate expression of joy in our lives and your wedding dance is the beginning of a lifetime of joyful celebrations as husband and wife.

More and more couples are better preparing themselves for their wedding dance. They are having fun learning to dance, and many of them are continuing their dancing long after their wedding. 


We have been teaching at our Dance School in Tampa, Florida and producing instructional dance videos since 1979.

During all these years we have helped thousands of wedding couples and their families get ready for this very special occasion.

Some couples come to us with a favorite song already selected, but unsure as to what dance goes with that particular song. Others need help with the song selection as well as the dance selection.

Below is a list of the most popular and requested wedding songs and their respective dance. Since it would be an overwhelming task to include every possible song on our list, we selected several songs for each of the most popular dances. It will give you an idea of which tempos belong to which dance.

Most of the songs listed below are great for the Bride & Groom's First Dance. Some of them are also excellent  for the Father & Daughter as well as  Mother & Groom.


  • It Had to Be you - Harry Connick Jr.

  • The way You Look Tonight - Frank Sinatra

  • Our Love is Here to Stay - Rod Stewart

  • They Can't Take that Away from Me - Regis Phelbin


  • Could I Have This Dance - Anne Murray

  • You Light Up my Life - Joe Brooks

  • Sunrise Sunset - Fiddler on the Roof

  • Fascination - Jane Morgan


  • Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

  • Unforgettable - Natalie & Nat King Cole

  • At Last - Etta James or Louis Rawls

  • Someone to Watch Over Me - Rod Stewart


If you already have a song, you can find the corresponding dance by either going to a dance studio with your song, or getting an instructional video that shows different dances and then selecting the dance which matches your song.

If you don't have a song, you can first try different dances to see which tempo you feel is most comfortable; and then select a song with that particular tempo.

Allowing enough time to learn and practice together will make the dancing more fun, graceful and relaxed. We recommend starting at least one month,( preferably three months) prior to the wedding day.
