The video, which has racked up over 44 million views on TikTok, is a part of a much longer clip of their “dance through the decades” performance, which also included iconic dance steps like the Tootsie Roll, the Hammer dance and the Carlton.  

“Reason number 1838329194920 why I love my dad,” she wrote in the caption.

Brittany, a 30-year-old physical therapist in San Diego, and Kelly, a 63-year-old retired accountant, received a significant amount of praise from commenters, who agreed that he has “got the moves.”

An earlier video of the father-daughter dancing tandem also went viral on the platform in 2020 during the pandemic, generating over 18 million views.

“We were spending lots of time at home, and I saw him working hard in the living room and wanted to get up and move,” Brittany told “The Morning Show. ” “I saw the TikTok dance challenge and needed a partner. I thought, ‘Why not get my dad involved and get him moving?’”

Kelly added, “When the kids were little, we used to dance all the time when I came home from work.”

How to stage a wedding dance yourself

  • For those who want to take the risk and try to stage their first dance on their own, I want to give some useful tips. I hope that they will help you competently plan and stage a harmonious wedding dance!
    This article will be useful both for those who already know how to dance a little, and for those who are very enthusiastic and want to try their hand and come up with the dance of their dreams on their own.

    Your first wedding dance is in your hands!

    So, what should be assessed and considered before proceeding with the production?

    Size of the dance floor and height of the ceilings

    If your dance floor is small, then when staging the dance, you should avoid moving around the ballroom, choosing more compact dance figures for your composition.
    At the same time, if your venue is large, it is advisable to include several figures in your dance, in which you will actively move around the hall, thus filling the space visually.
    Let's take a simple example: a wedding dance set to the tempo of a fast (Viennese) waltz. For the case if you have a small dance floor, you should stop at the “figured waltz” option, performing the figures without advancing, and performing the waltz itself “in a square”.
    If you have a large area, I suggest including a big circle waltz.

    Ceiling height is important for high supports, the simplest of which is lifting the bride in her arms. Before performing such support, you need to make sure that the height of the ceilings allows it. For example, in some restaurants and on steamboats, it is problematic to perform high lifts.

    Spectator's side

    All your movements, and especially postures, should be laid out in directions and oriented to the "spectator's" side. To begin with, determine the configuration of your dance hall, the place where you will go to dance, the place where the main part of the audience will be concentrated, where the photographer and videographer will stand.
    All your poses must be performed facing the audience. To do this, you need to decompose your dance into directions, so that for the performance of certain figures you find yourself facing your audience.
    If you have 2 or more spectator sides, then you need to decompose your dance so that you alternately dance to one or the other spectator side. Preference should be given to the side where the photographer and videographer will stand.


    You can dance to any music you like. It should be borne in mind that it consists of musical phrases, which in turn are divided into measures. The main rules that I recommend to follow in order to achieve the musicality of your performance:

    a) As soon as a new musical phrase starts, you must change the movement type. The simplest example: while the singer is singing one phrase, you make one movement, when he starts singing another phrase, you start making another movement. Most often in musical compositions there are verses, choruses and losses. They usually consist of several musical phrases.

    b) Play with musical accents and puffs. Accents (beats in music) are perfectly played with rapid hand movements, a sudden stop in movement, or a sharp change in direction. Puffs are best suited for “smeared” smooth poses.

    c) Within each musical phrase there are several measures (most often the time signature for modern compositions is 4/4, for a waltz 3/4). Try to hear them, isolate and decompose your movements into strokes, achieving clarity of execution.

    Before decomposing your movements into music, I recommend doing a musical dictation: decomposing your music into phrases, measures, highlighting accents and puffs. And then to impose on them movements.


    Suggested duration of the dance: about 3 minutes including entering the platform and bowing. If your musical composition is longer, then it is worth trimming it using software tools. A longer dance rarely looks good: the audience gets tired and the effect of the first impression is lost.
    If you fundamentally do not want to shorten your melody, then I recommend inserting some pantomime scenes into it for contrast (scenes of a meeting, farewell, quarrel, reconciliation). This will advantageously set off the dance part and help make your performance more intense and interesting for the audience.

    Physiology of the bride and groom

    The appearance of the couple is very important for creating a harmonious dance.
    Couples in which both the bride and groom have an ideal athletic physique and an ideal difference in height (10-15 cm) are few. All dance figures will suit these lucky ones.
    But if your pair has features, then they must be taken into account and beaten, using 100%!

    For example, for couples in which the groom is much taller than the bride (the difference in height is 20 cm or more), elements in which the groom goes down (visually becomes lower) and the bride remains standing will look very good. Also, for such a couple, support with rotation on the hands will look great, in which the bride is taken in her arms facing the groom (see photo above).

    If there is a small difference in height between partners in a couple or the bride is taller than the groom, then supports are perfect for you, in which the bride deviates, and the groom remains standing straight. Elements in which the girl sits down on bent knees facing the groom will also look good. Rotation on the hands for such a pair is best done in a position when the girl is picked up sideways.

    In couples where the bride has a more dense physique than the groom, we recommend avoiding elements with the bride lifting on her hands, the main emphasis in this case is better to place on the partner's plastic movements and masculine lines in the partner's positions.

    Video work

    If you are staging your own wedding dance, you will most likely be using video footage. It would be a big mistake to simply copy the movements from someone else's dance.
    When watching the video, be sure to select those movements that you understand how beautiful and correct to perform and avoid complex and incomprehensible elements.
    You should also be aware that what looks easy and beautiful in a professional performance, for beginners, it may not look advantageous at all.
    Think about whether the movements you like are right for your couple, whether you perform them well. Take a video of yourself and compare the resulting picture with the original. Leave only those movements that you are good at.

    Advice for girls

    Girls, think about the features of your wedding dress when staging a dance. If the dress is tight, then you should wear a tight skirt at the rehearsal in order to immediately avoid movements that you basically cannot do in this dress.
    If you have a crinoline dress, then wear a crinoline at rehearsal so that you and your fiancé get used to its size. Remember that the crinoline creates some distance between you in the dance, as well as inertia in the rotations.
    If you have a train - then you need to either stab it or support it with your hand. Accordingly, during rehearsals, always keep something in the hand that will be occupied by the train. Often the choice of movements for a wedding dance is largely dictated by the bride's wedding dress!


    When working on the wedding dance on your own, you need to start staging about 2 months before the wedding. Chances are you won't have much time right before the wedding, and a good staging is time-consuming (especially if you don't have any dance experience), so it's best to start working on the dance early. With the rehearsal mode 1-2 times a week for one hour, you will have time to put on and learn the dance, film yourself on video and work on your mistakes.
    It is a good idea to start doing any pair dance (in a regular dance group), this will allow you to master the principles of pair movement and teach you simple movements that you can use in your production.

    Staging a wedding dance by yourself is an interesting, creative, but not an easy task. I recommend that after the end of the production, if possible, come to professional teachers for at least one lesson and show them your dance. I wish all the newlyweds happiness, love, joy and good luck in staging the wedding dance!

    If you want to make your wedding unique, then you should definitely pay special attention to the production of the wedding dance. Today there are several directions of wedding dance, so initially decide on the option that suits you in all respects. Be sure to consider the general style of the celebration, the preferences of relatives, the outfits of the young and, of course, the newlyweds' own wishes. Before deciding on a direction, you need to study general information about them, which will help you make the right decision.

    • traditional dance - waltz, which is usually danced by all newlyweds. The convenience of this option is that the bride will be able to waltz even in a very magnificent dress. Due to lack of experience, some couples complain not only of fatigue, but also of dizziness. But if you practice well, then there will be no difficulties with the preparation of a traditional wedding dance.
    • Latin American dance - it can be cha-cha-cha, samba or rumba. Such a wedding dance SPb you can learn at the dance school Dance Sport Club "Insight" under the guidance of experienced dance teachers. Latin American wedding dance can also be prepared on the basis of tango or factrot, so young people can easily decide on the ideal option.
    • wedding mix is ​​a more creative and modern dance wedding direction. Several melodies are taken for staging, which differ in style and tempo, for example, romantic rumba, rock and roll, waltz, and so on in one dance. Some invited guests may be a little shocked by such a dance, but in general the impression of the celebration will be unique.
    • free staging - implies the use of any modern melody, preferably at a slow pace. If young people have little skills in this direction, then this option is ideal for them. Be sure, when stopping at a melody with text in another language, think about translating the text so as not to spoil the overall mood of the event.
    • historical dance of a ballroom character - it can be a minuet, mazurka, polka, etc. This choice is especially suitable if the event is organized in the style of "old times", in particular when holding an event in an old manor, in a palace, and so on.
    • thematic dance performance for a wedding - this option is suitable if the wedding is held in a certain style, for example, in folk style or a holiday on the beach.
    • show dance - from the first dance, the newlyweds can make a real mini show program. For staging, you can use cutting music, a theatrical performance using costumes, actors (friends as participants in the show), and so on.

    It should be noted that wedding dance production , which will look attractive and unique, is possible only if the preparation will take place under the guidance of an experienced dance teacher of the dance school.
