Slow dances for dummies

FH and I can’t dance but we’re going to try anyway! We just want a romantic slow dance, no fancy footwork except maybe a twirl? Have you guys run across any good videos? Did you do an easy dance without falling on your face?
I just want that sweet loving moment with FH on the dance floor without it looking like we’re at a prom awkwardly squeezing each other.

Cinderella made this look so easy...

    Try searching the Rumba box step. You can practice in your living room and look coordinated.

    I was also going to mention the box step. It's so easy that even my husband could do it and he's not a dancer at all. It also looks good especially if you add a few spins.

    How long did it take him to learn?

    Our first dance was to Can't Help Falling in Love. I think I played it about 4 times (on different days) and we just danced the few minutes the song played so that in total it took him less than 30 minutes. We started about a month before the wedding.

    Wow! Maybe this is possible after all. Thank you so much, this will look so much nicer than that awkward prom sway.

    Our first dance

    Slow dances for dummies


    Here's a video of our first dance so you can see him dancing the box step. We had our band leader invite everyone to join us after about 30 seconds.

    You guys are so cute. I love that little kiss he snuck in there, so adorable!!! ❤️ Thank you for sharing, gosh I hope we look like that. FH tends to frown when he’s concentrating, lol he’d look like a grump.

    Thanks! I wasn't even sure we would dance our first dance because of his social anxiety. I let him leave the decision up in the air until about 5 minutes before we got up there to dance. So I was very pleasantly surprised that he even remembered how to dance and he looked good!

    He doesn’t look nervous at all! ❤️ He looks relaxed and smiling, wrapped up in the joy of the moment. That’s a video to show off for years to come, he did a really good job.
