How to make a successfull ball opening ?
The ball opening is one of the most awaited moments of the evening! According to tradition, the opening of the ball is between the father of the bride and the bride. They dance a waltz together and then the groom takes over.
However, this has changed a lot in recent years. The bride and groom are betting more and more on originality.
Make it different !
On the other hand, you can choose originality and surprise your guests. Why not with a medley of songs. Start with a slow song and then move on to more rhythmic music to diversify the dance styles. Salsa, rock, bachata, boogie woogie, quick step … Anything goes!
Show off your dancing skills !
Some will make a personal creation for their ball opening. On the other hand, others will take up the famous dances from the greatest films, not to mention Dirty Dancing and its famous porter!
