Shake Up Your Quince Dance!

October 20, 2008 at 9:02 AM by Alicia Flores | Comments

A traditional waltz may be what everyone expects at your quinceañera, but I found this YouTube video where birthday girl Moriah shakes things up. Using a mix including Bubba Sparxx's "Miss New Booty," Chris Brown's "Run It," Fergie's "My Humps," Nelly's "Grillz," and Dem Franzhize's "Lean with It, Rock with It," Moriah choreographed a dance that was meant to be different and fun for her friends to do together.

At my quinceañera, I chose a traditional waltz, but it's fun to see how creative some girls get. I love that the girls are barefoot -- very fun and relaxed. I also like that the boys are wearing white hats and the girls are wearing black, except for Moriah who is in white, so it's obvious who the main attraction is.

For your quinceañera, you should do whatever makes you happy. You are, after all, the birthday girl, and if a traditional dance isn't what you envision, you can create something else memorable and fun. It's like that show "Rock the Reception" on TLC. Have you heard of it? The bride and groom do a first dance -- to the tunes of "Thriller" and "Baby Got Back," for example -- and shock their guests!

What do you think? Would you try something crazy for your quinceañera, or would you prefer keeping things more traditional? You could even start with a waltz and change the music to your favorite modern song halfway through, and go into a more upbeat dance. That will surprise your friends and family and definitely leave an unforgettable impression.
