“My dad had secretly been taking dance lessons at home in Houston, so we used some of his moves and choreographed the rest of the routine in my living room once he got here. We danced to our song, ‘Walk of Life.’ My friends and family totally loved it.”

“The summer between my first and second year at grad school, my friends and I choreographed a fairly elaborate routine to ‘Like a Virgin.’ We continued to do the act when we all got together—including in the middle of my reception.”

“We knew our first song would be ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.’ And that got us thinking about doing a spoof of all the eighties movies we love. We wanted to relax during our first dance, so we played it then so that everyone was watching the video instead of us!”

“My husband’s friend is a talented amateur singer, and he asked if he could sing at our wedding. He surprised us with George Michael’s ‘Freedom! ’90,’ and it was so great that we had a bunch of friends coming up to us asking if he could perform at their weddings, too.”
