The Intentions!

Want your first dance to ooze class and sophistication? Trade in your Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift albums for something a touch more refined and try setting the tone with a jazz first dance song by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin or Louis Armstrong. While top 40 hits are great, jazz songs have a timeless quality that few pop artists can replicate. If you’re aiming to achieve a Gatsby-esque vibe, these jazz dance song ideas will fit perfectly into your big day.
