If you are planning on taking dance lessons for your big day it helps to arrive prepared. Most studio sound systems will accomodate your ipod and also have a cd player so bring your song ideas. It is also helpful to know the dimensions of the floor you will be dancing on and to wear the shoes you plan to wear at the reception. You can also dance in shoes that are similar in heel height and sole material to the shoes you have chosen or traditional ballroom dancing shoes. Sneakers and sandles are not recommended. It will help your instructor to know if you will be dancing to music played live or to music provided by a dj. Be sure to tell your instructor if your dress has a very narrow or a very full skirt so the movement can be designed to accomodate your gown. Men may want to try dancing in a jacket. Most instructors will be happy to talk with you or your wedding planner by phone in advance of your first lesson to go over the details. It will be important to a good instructor to know how you envision the role of the first dance in your celebration.
