I received an awesome email and Youtube links from students Barry and Aini recently. They recently renewed their wedding vows on their 10-year anniversary, and incorporated my wedding dance program into the after-party show starting with my slow dance moves for beginners and then breaking out into a hip-hop routine!
Jumping back to my Wedding Dance instructional video, here's an extra video I made covering the three most common mistakes I see with wedding and slow dances. Specifically, I emphasize the biggest mistakes made for the basic 2-step, turns, and dips. For the basic step, many beginners go into a double embrace I call the "high school hug". It looks awkward and isn't really a dance. I know many couples like the closeness felt in a deep embrace, but if you're doing a wedding dance in front of many people, a proper closed hold works much better.
