First dance with Daddy

Hi,

My big day is coming up. I would love to dance with full confidence with my father on the dance floor. Now I know every one is going to watch us. I'm totally new to ballroom dancing.

Any suggestions to which one I should learn? I don't have much time, therefore it would need to be easy to learn but beautiful to watch..

Any suggestions would be appreciated! =)

Sandy-

It would be a really good idea to make sure you know what dances your dad is comfortable with. If he is an experienced dancer, then I would advise the "slow" waltz (slow vs Viennese, which is fast). All male dancers are told that our job is to make the woman look good, and I think that is easiest for the leader to do (especially with an inexperienced partner) with the waltz.

Good luck, and remember, mistakes dont count! The goal is to have FUN!!!
