The Magic Of The First Dance At a Nigerian Wedding!

The first dance is a tradition from weddings around the world which originated from American and European culture. It is part of the post-wedding celebration at the couple’s wedding reception party. They are to entertain their wedding guests with either rehearsed, choreographed or freestyle dance. In the past, the dance was not danced alone. It is usually danced with other wedding guests including the newlywed’s parents, siblings, bridal party, grooms party and others in attendance.
