The First Dance
The First Dance at a wedding is an unusual etiquette. Unlike other traditions it actually has nothing to do with luck, ceremony and isn’t actually that historical. It is a purely European and American cultural activity, which developed around the 1930’s, by where the Bride & Groom as hosts introduce the night of dancing. One can understand the numerous fears and anxieties about this (there’s that famous episode in ‘FRIENDS’ where Chandler has secretly had dance lessons to prepare him for his and Monica’s first dance, only to find that his shoes slipped on the dance floor).
