Irish Dancers Entertain Wedding Guests—Then Bride Joins In And Blows Away The Crowd
Jul 29, 2020
It's always nice to see people put their own stamp on their wedding. This couple wanted to celebrate their Irish heritage on their wedding day in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 2019 and did so by having Irish dancers perform for their guests. The surprise was that the bride joined in too.
The guests at the wedding were ready to see some evening entertainment. At first, two Irish dancers walked onto the stage. They began to dance to the song Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon. Everyone began to get into it, you could see the pair were warming up for an even bigger performance.
More girls began joining them on stage. They broke off into pairs, their feet tapping on the floor in beautiful synchronicity. The dancers are from the Hooley School of Irish Dance. The school is able to showcase talented dancers because of its mission to "cultivate character and excellence through a supportive community and learning environment," as stated on their website.
The bride and groom were watching from the outskirts of the stage, enjoying the performance on their special day. The bride then runs across the stage and is joined by her flower girl as they dance in front of everyone. They blend seamlessly into the routine despite being barefoot, so unable to make the same tapping sound as the rest of the dancers.
The performance ended with the groom also joining his wife on the dance floor as they twirled around, and finished the routine with a romantic kiss. The audience erupted in cheers and applause.
Amazingly, the whole routine was captured on camera and once it hit YouTube it became a viral success. So far it has had over 3.5 million views!
