The dance of the bride with her father and the dance of the groom with her moth­er is a very soul­ful, touch­ing part of theevening, which express­es the grat­i­tude of chil­dren to their par­ents for life, upbring­ing and love, and is also a kind of farewell of young peo­ple with their parental fam­i­ly. The tra­di­tion of danc­ing with par­ents came to us from the West and undoubt­ed­ly became the dec­o­ra­tion of the fes­tive ban­quet. In this arti­cle Chan­fash­ion will give you some tips on how to pre­pare your­self and pre­pare your par­ents for this beau­ti­ful and bright moment.

Try not to complicate

Do you under­stand that danc­ing with par­ents should not demon­strate the extra­or­di­nary chore­o­graph­ic abil­i­ties of the par­tic­i­pants? Do not com­pli­cate the dance, on the con­trary, the main empha­sis is on sin­cer­i­ty, sin­cer­i­ty and touch­ing.

Find time to rehearse

If you still decide to sur­prise your guests with a pro­duc­tion dance, it’s time to think about a chore­o­g­ra­ph­er. A pro­fes­sion­al will be able to take into account all the nuances: the phys­i­cal form of the par­ents, their will­ing­ness to learn new move­ments, the plat­form on which the dance will take place, and will select the most suit­able option. Togeth­er you will bring your “pas” to per­fec­tion. On aver­age, 4–5 rehearsals are need­ed, one of which should be done in the same shoes and out­fit that will be sim­i­lar to yourones. Remem­ber: train­ing is the key to the suc­cess of danc­ing at the hol­i­day!

Unite Parents

Chan­fash­ion advis­es turn­ing your­dance into a touch­ing fam­i­ly pro­duc­tion. In the mid­dle of the dance, invite the father of the bride and the moth­er of the groom to the stage to express all your love and grat­i­tude to your par­ents in dance move­ments. And we pro­pose to com­plete this num­ber with a sym­bol­ic con­nec­tion — the bride and groom return to each oth­er, and the bride’s father dances with the groom’s moth­er. Thus, you can demon­strate the con­nec­tion of two fam­i­lies into a sin­gle whole!

Most often, new­ly­weds choose waltz, free dance or com­ic dance to dance with their par­ents.

Bride and father dance

Your dance with your dad may fol­low your first­dance with your fiance, but we advise you not to unleash so many emo­tions on your­self and those present at once. Start danc­ing with your par­ents for the sec­ond musi­cal break at the ban­quet. Imag­ine how touch­ing­ly and effec­tive­ly you can beat the begin­ning: the groom will bring you to your father and give him your hand.

If you feel like cry­ing while danc­ing, don’t hold back your emo­tions and don’t think about make­up! Tears will only empha­size the depth of the moment!

Groom’s dance with mom

After the dance of the bride and father, it is the turn of the son-groom to invite his moth­er to the dance. Just imag­ine what pride and joy over­whelms the moth­er of your loved one. Now you will take care of her son. The groom at this excit­ing moment should be as gal­lant and atten­tive to his moth­er as pos­si­ble, express­ing all his love and grat­i­tude in every move­ment and look.

Par­tic­u­lar atten­tion should be paid to the clothes of the moth­er of the groom: we advise you to avoid long trains and puffy sleeves. The dress should also not be too tight. To avoid embar­rass­ing sit­u­a­tions, do not for­get to check this issue.

You should not choose very sad songs to dance with your par­ents — you don’t say good­bye for­ev­er and fly away to anoth­er plan­et. Let it be your par­ents favorite tune. Even bet­ter if it’s your over­all favorite song.

To enhance the impres­sion of the dance, you can use a slide show. Make a selec­tion of the bright­est, most unusu­al fam­i­ly pho­tos and videos to accom­pa­ny the dance num­ber. And sparklers in the hands of spec­ta­tors or an explo­sion of con­fet­ti will help to fin­ish beau­ti­ful­ly.

If the pres­ence of a father is not pos­si­ble, invite an uncle or grand­fa­ther, a teacher, a god­fa­ther to the dance — a per­son whom you respect and whose role in your life is very impor­tant.

After fin­ish­ing the dance, give each par­ent mem­o­rable gifts: dad, for exam­ple, cuf­flinks or a bot­tle of expen­sive alco­hol, and mom — a bou­quet of beau­ti­ful flow­ers. So you once again express your grat­i­tude to your par­ents.

Step by step preparation instructions

So, where to start:

  • Togeth­er with your par­ents, decide on the style of your dances
