When a professional dancer marries a ballerina, you know it's a match made on the dance floor and you can probably expect to see some exceptional moves at the reception.

But what ballerina bride Valerie Henning didn't see coming was a full on 8-minute choreographed number from her new hubby Kirk Henning and his many groomsmen.

The beautiful blonde was sitting front and center in a cozy chair when all of a sudden she noticed something magical unfolding before her very eyes. One-by-one, each of the handsome groomsmen (four of which are professional dancers, nbd) turned around to the snazzy beats of the Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars hit "Uptown Funk". 

The groom wasted no time and broke out some impressive dance moves himself that got his lovely new wife grooving in her seat. The couple held the wedding reception at CenterStage in Virgina, where they have performed together in the past as members of the Richmond Ballet.

Surprise Groomsmen Dance


One of our favorite moments is when the very recognizable first notes of Britney Spears' "(You Drive Me) Crazy" is heard and then BOOM—confetti falls from the ceiling. All eight groomsmen—every single one of them, you guys—worked their hips and Kirk wowed the crowd with some crazy breakdance moves.

As if that wasn't enough to write home about, Valerie was seen jumping out of her seat as the Top Gun theme song "Danger Zone" blasted over the speakers while the groom and his buddies threw on Maverick-esque aviator shades. 

The boys in black delighted the crowd as they did a little boot scootin' boogie and whipped out their line dancing skills (props for the cowboy hats, dudes) to the Brad Paisley hit "The World". And what better way for this epic moment to end but with a kiss and more confetti as the entire wedding crew joins in on the dance floor to Walk the Moon's summer anthem "Shut Up and Dance With Me."

Be right back, gotta go sign up for dance classes!
