Re: Which style dance for this song?

You didn't say what country you're in (or what style of dancing you favor). American Rumba is faster than International (as we in the U. S. usually call it) Rumba. And American Cha-Cha is slightly slower than International Cha-Cha (the NDCA specifies 30 measures/minute for Cha-Cha and 32-36 for Rumba--American style, that is). "Sway" is usually a Cha-Cha, but you could do a Rumba (American) to it.

Hi Lizzie Kate. Am I too late? Are you well and truly married now? Either way I hope you'll be very happy.

Do you insist it must be Dino's version? If so, a Rumba would be more elegant as a Wedding Dance, but, if it doesn't have to be Dean Martin's recording, then please, please, try to get hold of "Sway" by Peter Cincotti. I'm sure you'd love this piano /vocal version. And it is most definitely a Rumba.
