A very long time ago, the first dance didn’t exist but another tradition was famous to do on a wedding day. This tradition is traceable back to ancient times, when a man took a bride by literally taking her, hunting down and kidnapping the woman who had become the object of his desires. To showcase his hunting prowess and his new bride, he marched his catch round and round the fire in front of friends and clansmen before the celebratory partying could begin. Nowadays, regardless of a couple’s culture, ethnicity, religion or gender and mentality, the first dance arrived. This dance is a visual representation of the exchange of vows, it is also the couple’s acceptance of each other as equal partners and the beginning of their new life together as one.
