Quinceañera celebrations today are usually lavish parties with many guests. They are similar to weddings in many ways. Quinceañera planning begins early, and the girl’s family and godparents save money for the party until she is old enough. Preparation can take up to two years.
Quinceañeras are essentially centered around dance. The dances included in Quinceañeras must be learned and prepared to be performed in front of guests. Apart from special dances such as the Father-Daughter Dance, the Waltz group dance, and the Surprise dance, celebrants and guests often dance to Salsa, Cumbia, Cha-Cha, Merengue, Bolero, and Rumba.
One of the most popular quinceañera traditions is the Waltz, an elegant, choreographed dance performed by the birthday girl and her court. Additionally, if it is the first dance of the celebration, the Quinceañera will be partnered with her father. The choreographed dance typically requires months of planning and several rehearsals. A professional dance choreographer may also be hired as a guide during the party… FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT for a consultation.
Traditionally, a quinceañera’s first dance is with her father. It is still customary for a father and daughter to dance during the Quinceañera. Performing it with her father continues to be one of the most emotional parts of the Quinceañera celebration because it represents the birthday girl’s first dance as a young woman. Sometimes, an older man who served as a father figure will dance if the father isn’t available. The dance is traditionally a waltz.
Fathers often use this opportunity to offer encouragement to their daughters as they take their first steps into womanhood. It is usually choreographed to a song chosen by the father that holds special meaning for them. It is also traditionally the first dance a girl performs in public. The father can turn over the Quinceañeras to her escort at that time.
Quinceañeras chambelanes (or the birthday girl’s escort) will ask the father for permission to dance with the birthday girl after the father and daughter dance. For chambelanes, the Waltz (Vals) is a traditional dance when they dance with the quinceañera to be.
The main chambelan at a Quinceañera is usually a brother, cousin, or close relative. He may also have been her childhood friend, a classmate at school, or a neighbor. The principal chambelan is usually someone close to the Quinceañera. She will feel comfortable with him around at all times because of this. Trust and communication enable them to describe their preferences. The Chambelan needs to be reliable and able to attend the dance rehearsals.
Common Questions & Answers About Quinceañeras
What is the ideal number of lessons? You should be able to learn a choreography for a Father-Daughter Dance that is approximately 3 minutes long in two to four hours. To learn the Waltz and Surprise Dance choreography for a Quinceañera/Royal-Court Dance (around 3.5 to 5 minutes), we recommend at least 8 hours of training.
We spend most of our time learning eye-catching, fun moves that show off the Father-Daughter and the Quinceañera and her court and add magic to your song choices. We spend the remaining time practicing and polishing it. We want you to look amazing. It is our signature that is out there when you perform our routines!
Keep in mind that the longer the song mix, the longer you will have to dance, the more you will need to practice.
When should I begin learning the Quinceañera choreography? Don’t wait until the last minute! Start learning as soon as possible. From experience, you should look for a Quince Choreographer in Los Angeles at least two months before the event. The ideal time to have your choreography completed and ready is at least seven days before your special day.
It would be best if you considered holidays, special days, and other events that your court participants may be involved in when arranging your quinceañera training timeline. A parent should also make sure that the royal court is engaged and committed to attending lessons.
