What Dance Style is My First Dance Song?

If you’re new to the dance world, you probably don’t notice much of a difference from one “slow song” to the next. A slow dance is a slow dance, right? Nope! Different songs that have different rhythms have their own special steps, figures, and dance style. Today we’re going to talk about some of the most popular slow dance styles. You’re never going to hear a “slow song” the same way again…


1. Thinking Out Loud -Ed Sheeran

This song can be danced as a latin ballroom Rumba. When you watch latin ballroom on TV, Rumba is the romantic slow dance you see. Since it’s such a slow style, it will make you feel more relaxed when you’re dancing it. No need to stress if you choose Rumba as your wedding dance- there’s plenty of time to be in the moment and enjoy.


Some other songs that can be danced as a Rumba :

"Make You Feel My Love" by Adele

"Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton

"Have I Told You Lately" by Van Morrison
