Preparation for the dance of the bride and her bridesmaids
The idea of a bride dancing with her bridesmaids can be suggested by the girl herself, as well as her friends or a witness. To make it look really impressive, you need to start preparing it as early as possible. It is necessary to think over everything to the smallest detail: style, clothes, movements, script. Therefore, it is worth approaching the organization of the performance responsibly.
It is recommended to prepare a wedding dance number long before the solemn event. Because besides this, young people need to prepare many other things for the wedding, and it is very difficult to compose and learn a dance. It is required not only to deliver it, but also to train the performance, allocating time for repetition.
First you need to decide on the clothes for the number. It should be comfortable and, moreover, all dancers should wear the same style. You can prepare the wedding in a certain color scheme and make the bridesmaids’ outfits the same or similar, and they should also be combined with the dress of the heroine of the celebration.
Or you can prepare costumes separately to change into during the celebration.
Next, you need to decide on the dance itself. These can be simple movements that every girl can handle or a number choreographed. Then he will attract admiring glances and look amazing, but for this you need to try very hard. Participants must learn all the movements with high quality, be able to move synchronously and to the beat, get into the rhythm and not go astray.
If you hire a professional to stage, he will be able to assess the abilities of all the girls, look at the actions from the outside.
The choreographer will not only stage beautiful movements, but also correctly position the girls in the space of the wedding suite. He can tell each of her weaknesses and bring out her strengths. Based on this, he will make the dance number not just beautiful, but fantastic.
And also it is necessary to determine the time of the performance. This issue must be coordinated with the toastmaster so that she can correctly allocate a certain moment for speaking in the program of the evening. She will certainly give advice, and also help to announce the number of the holiday in an interesting way. You can entertainingly enter a scene into the program of the evening, make a whole theatrical production or a spectacular show.
Preparing the dance on your own
If it is decided to put the composition on their own, then someone must take on the main role in order to determine the movements, compose them into an integral composition and make sure that others do everything correctly.
You can find ready-made numbers on the Internet. The staging of such a dance in any case will have its own shade. You need to break someone else’s number into separate movements, and memorize them sequentially. And you can also change the script a little, and in the end you will get your own unique performance. Or you can take several different dance videos, choose the most beautiful or suitable movements from them, combine them, then you will also get a great original performance. See the next video for an example.
Otherwise, you can invent your own movements. Especially if one of the bridesmaids or the bride herself is dancing. Then she takes on the role of choreographer. In this case, you need to make the correct arrangement of the participants. Put plastic and flexible girls in the foreground, who move better and perform movements more correctly. And in the background — those who dance worse or do not remember the dance sequence well, so they can follow the girls from the front row and repeat after them.
For a high-quality performance of an independent number, you need a lot of training. The more times you repeat it, the better you will dance at the celebration.
You can make the dance of the bride with her girlfriend original and unusual if you perform it in a certain genre. It can be oriental dances, flamenco, classical dances, folk style or others that the bride may like.
It is not necessary to single out the bride, you can organize a performance without a central link. Everyone will pay attention to her already, so you can not try to attract more views.
For a performance, it makes sense to take various accessories that complement the image. It can be colorful ribbons, hats, ties, hairpins and more. If your number contains a whole scene, then the choice of additional items is unlimited. You can take umbrellas, flowers, various appliances and symbolic things.
In dance, you can convey a whole story, put on a theatrical scene or make a real performance out of it. The dance can be included in the rite of kidnapping the bride or her return, then the whole performance should be directed to this. In this case, the bridesmaids can dress up as robbers, the wives of the Sultan or secret agents. This will make the best of performances.
You can also do a dance in a folk style or tell a ritual in it. How girls give their girlfriend in marriage, how they escort her on this honeymoon trip, how an older, married woman dedicates a newly made bride. And you can also tell what awaits the girl in later life.
An incendiary dance-surprise can be ritual, serious or comic and cheerful. You can make a flash mob, then the performance will be more ambitious. It’s nice to dance a fun potpourri. In any case, the hero of the occasion herself must choose. She can bring all her ideas to life and make the evening truly unforgettable.
To make the performance of the bride with her bridesmaids colorful and memorable, there are an unlimited number of possibilities. They can be found on the Internet or taken from original traditions or invented personally, taking as a basis interesting events that occurred in life. It can be a fantastic story from a book or a magical cartoon.
The idea for the performance can be an example of a famous dance, for example, from your favorite movie. Or those that are popular on the Internet.
For a romantic and gentle number, you can take a modern interpretation of classical types of choreography. One of these areas is modern. It and other modern styles are quite difficult to perform, but with the instructions of the choreographer, it is possible to put on such a number.
This performance will look stylish and delightful, and you will definitely not regret the efforts made. Guests will be delighted, and all participants in the celebration will remember this day and your dance for a long time.
You can also make a theatrical performance. It will be interesting to tell the story of the young people, their first meeting, the development of love, up to this day. Such a number will definitely amaze the audience and will be a very touching gift to the groom.
It is interesting to make this production against the background of the screen, where you can put a video sequence of photos of the newlyweds, tracing their history. This will be a very exciting gesture, a very romantic and wonderful gift.
An interesting idea is a flash mob at a wedding. Not only the bridesmaids, but also the groom’s friends, or even all the guests can participate in such a number. Such a performance has a grand scale, and certainly will not go unnoticed. The participants of the celebration will be filled with positive and drive, which will never be forgotten.
