Compass Entertainment Top Tip: First Dance

January 27, 2012

If you are somewhat like me, ‘rhythmically challenged’, my limps usually have a mind of its own (usually stoic more then anything else), considering a dance in front of friends, families and *gasp* in-laws can be daunting.

(And you thought the first march in was tough.)

Well, one of the best ways to learn will be through a dance school. Now, they are many good ones in Singapore, and some of them like Jitterbugs Singapore have studios that are centrally located.

But if you will like to ‘take-it-easy’ and go with the flow, choosing the right song for your first dance is vital. And one of the best genres to start will be waltz. You do not need to be an accomplished waltz dancer like this:


Waltz provides a great rhythm to get grooving. The most fundamental of all is try not to step on each other and learn to enjoy. Then, leave it to the great photographers and videographers to do their magic. Most of all, have fun and the rest will fall in place.

Here are some great waltz songs to consider:


‘Moon River’

‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’

‘At Last’

‘Que Sera Sera’ (great for parents dancing with the bride/groom)

Having a live band to perform the selected dance piece has tremendous effect on the atmosphere. It injects an element of ‘live’ into the dance and the duration of the dance can even be tailored. For starters, we recommend a 1 minute for best results.

So go on, do the waltz tilt at the end of the song. While you’re at it, why not get the band to play for you?
