No cold feet here! A groom and professional dancer from Richmond, Va., named Kirk Henning surprised his ballerina bride, Valerie Tellmann-Henning, with an epic, 8-minute-long choreographed dance on their wedding day this past July in a video that’s now gone viral.
Clad in their tuxes, Kirk and his eight equally adorable groomsmen managed to pull off the lengthy routine to the tune of “Uptown Funk,” “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” and a medley of other hits while Valerie (rapt and sitting in a chair) thoroughly enjoyed the performance, clapping giddily as each song changed.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Valerie was completely surprised by the stunt.
“I told him early on in the wedding planning process, ‘Well, I hope you’re working on your groomsmen dance for me,’” she told the paper. “But he was so busy with touring and school, he said, ‘Valerie, it’s just not going to happen.’”
Sneaky Kirk, however, started planning the routine with his boys four months in advance and would even send them video tutorials to practice. “I knew how important it was to her,” Kirk said. “So I figured, we’re going to do this or die trying.”
While four of the groomsmen are also professional dancers, the rest of the gang, in fact, is not. We’ll let you decide who’s who!
