I am the Dancing Queen (or King)

The fiancee and I are taking dance classes for the big day. Apparently she wants to not look like a pair of drunken hobos on the dance floor. I'm not going to lie. I was not really looking forward to it. But she really wanted to do it, so I said okay. We've gone to two waltz lessons, with one more coming. I have been pleasantly surprised. I actually kind of enjoy it. I don't know if I'd continue doing it after the wedding, but for the mean time, it's okay. The instructor tells the fiancee she's a natural. I'm getting better. It became clear to me last night that the fiancee is a lot better than lots of the girls there. One, who we call "Stumpy," has two left feet AND two right feet. It's like dancing with a shop-vac set to "suck." The first lesson she came alone. Last night, she came with a man we'll simply call "Sweaty." It's kind of irritating to dance with somebody who comes after the first class, because they're already way behind. The fiancee had to lead this soaking wet man. The only thing making his situation better was the fact he was covered in a dense layer of hair, sopping up some of the sweat. But I think that we are both improving, and we hopefully won't look like total tools at our wedding next week. The main problem now is figuring out what song to dance to. We have several ideas, but are open to suggestion. We aren't nuts about any of the songs we have so far. Do you people have any ideas?

So here are my ratings for today. Dance classes: I'll give them 8 pirouettes. Bad dance partners: I'll award them one pair of scuffed ballet slippers (did I mention Stumpy wears ballet slippers instead of normal shoes?). And no wedding song: No rating, just help us!
