    We are doing our first dance to Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" and trying to figure out what style to dance to. We signed up for dance classes, but the teacher is horrible... I saw one post that someone danced Foxtrot to it. I tried to find videos on YouTube to see any examples, but couldn't find any to this song that were good.

    Any suggestions? Thank you!

      we're using the same song (and here we thought we were being unique...oh well!). we haven't quite figured out how to dance to it yet, but we saw some folks doing the cha-cha and that looked like it would work.

      Good luck.

        This was our song too.... however we planned on being more elaborate with the dance... but me being me .. just wanted to snuggle and sway. I was a blubbering fool as he sang his own little verson of it to me. 8o)

          I love that song! Great choice for a first dance :) I've used it when I build a slide show for my brides and grooms.

            How exciting, this is our first dance song too! We've gone through 2 sessions of personal dance classes, with a third tomorrow night, and we are doing a mixture of dances in it, but most of it is going to be a waltz. I love the waltz and with the slower tempo of this song, it just looks beautiful!! I'm SUPER nervous though b/c our choreographer also has us doing turns and even a lift...thats right, where FI LIFTS ME IN THE AIR AND does a full turn and a half...haha wish us luck! :)

            The thing is that this song is extremely long - 4 minutes!! So we are going to be cutting out about 45 seconds to a minute of it so it won't feel like it lasts forever. We still have about half of it left to learn so I will update y'all with what else we are doing as we go!

              If you're ready to take classes, I think the best for this is Swing !! West Coast or East coast I don't think it makes a difference, but this song has this little rhythm to it, I can perfectly picture swing on this.

                I can't offer any help, I just wanted to say that I LOVE that song!

                  I agree w/ Ayita on the swing. sorry ladies I'm giggling cause you all were wanting to be different and look how many of you are doing this song! That's just crazy. I love this song, but I'm using this song for me when I walk down the aisle.

                    I would go to Dance Forums and ask for advice. I had never posted there before and asked for first dance help, and everyone was super helpful! They listened to songs for me and told me exactly what styles would work :)

                    My fiance and I are doing a waltz to Come Away With Me by Norah Jones, and although I know someone said she's doing a waltz to your song, I don't see how it could work. It's not in 3/4 time, and it's too fast, but I guess with choreography you can do almost anything. Some of the other suggestions will probably fit perfectly though!
