You’ll Love this Special Mother of All Wedding Dances
One of the most sacred of bonds – mother and son – has always been a special force in the world. When it comes to raising boys, moms love, teach, nurture, nag, and embarrass them so they grow up to be compassionate and responsible men. What’s even more amazing though, is when they grow up wanting to pop and lock at their weddings with their mamas on the dance floor!
Like the epically emotional father-daughter dance at a wedding, when mom and son take the floor it’s a way to honor that relationship. During his wedding reception, bridegroom Jared stepped onto the dancefloor, ready for a traditional mother-son dance. What started out as your typical, sentimental dance backed by Celine Dion’s Because You Loved Me turned into a fun performance.
The DJ then cut to MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This,” and mom and son killed the famous Hammer time dance. They set the floor on fire to The Sugarhill Gang’s old-school hit “Apache,” doing the “Jump On It” dance made famous by the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Other popular tunes included Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” “Crank it Like a Chainsaw,” and “Lean wit It, Rock wit It”; each song had its own set of choreography to match the song.
One of the crowning moments during the routine was watching the two of them do the stanky leg dance to the “Stanky Legg” song. Watching them turn it up with this dance was pure fun! If you’re not familiar, the stanky leg has been successfully executed by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Manganiello, the Obamas, and of course Beyoncé. It’s also quickly becoming a standard at weddings, graduations, and other celebrations.
