Don’t you love wedding planning? Dreamy dresses, elegant location, and beautiful bouquet’s. Dillard’s at Park Meadows put together a little show in their bridal department Saturday June 3, 2017.
In addition to the Dillard’s staff, several wedding vendors were on hand for brides to consult with. Event planner Armando Coronado attended from All in the Plan. Photographer Julia Grooms from Sincerely Jules studio was onsite for portraits. The Lancôme representative for Dillard’s was available to demonstrate makeup for weddings. She shared her artistic skills on Robyn and Juliana from Adventures in Dance. DJing from Sound Master Entertainment was Tony Cummins. He rocked wedding tunes and played music for dance demonstrations by Adventures in Dance.
Adventures in Dance brought their staff out to demonstrate wedding dances. Leading all the ladies was William Hooker. First, he danced smooth ballroom dances with Holly Collins. They demonstrated an night club two step to Megan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Loose You.” Next, they danced a Waltz, followed by a Tango to “Shall we Dance.” Without missing a beat, they transitioned to a Foxtrot, then a Viennese Waltz to Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway.” They closed with a quickstep to “Sing, Sing, Sing.”
Then next set was a demonstration of Latin dances by William and Robyn Collins. They kicked it off with a Jive to “Happy.” In honor of the Pirates of the Caribbean opening last week they danced a Paso Doble to “He’s a Pirate.” Slowing the tempo down, they stepped lightly into a Rumba by Michael Bublé “Everything.” After catching their breath, they picked it up with the Mambo from “Dirty Dancing” to “I’ve Had the Time of My Life.” Feeling a little Caribbean, they picked up a Samba to “Say Hey.” No wedding is complete without “Uptown Funk” and Robyn and William did not disappoint with a crowd-pleasing Cha-cha.
Movies often influence wedding trends, and this year’s trendsetter is Beauty and the Beast. Dressed as Belle, Juliana Cox Danced a smooth set with William Hooker decked out with a blue beast tailcoat. They kicked off the last set with a blended dance to the theme song to “Beauty and the Beast.” Next they danced a Foxtrot to “Lady and the Tramp.” Following that they danced a segue of Tango and Viennese Waltz to an edited version of “Tango De Roxanne” from Moulin Rouge, and “Fallen.” They closed with a classic waltz to Lady Antebellum song “If I Knew Then.”
It was a great day of dancing and talking romance with brides preparing for their wedding. Remember to check Holly’s hot wedding tips, for the latest expert wedding tips. Then for all your wedding dance needs, check out WEDDING DANCE instruction.
