Bride & Groom Have Most Mind-Blowing First Dance You'll Ever See (VIDEO)

Love It! 28

dominique morisseau jimmy keys first danceBeing a bride and groom might as well be like being the star of a big Broadway production. Everyone's watching, and you're "on" and entertaining all day/night -- whether that's the kind of thing you live for or absolutely loathe. One couple recently proved that they were practically born for the task by putting on the show of a lifetime for their wedding guests.

Playwright Dominique Morisseau and hip hop artist Jimmy Keys Jr. recently exchanged vows in Detroit, Michigan at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African & African-American History. Following their beautiful "I do"s, they did their first dance to an entire eight-minute medley of classics like "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" -- they did all the original choreography!! -- and "In the Mood" and "Somebody for Me" by Heavy D and the Boyz. If it sounds mind-blowing, just wait 'til you actually watch it ...

 

WOW. Just ... wow. I already admire couples who go out of their way to either choregraph a special performance for their first dance or even take dance lessons in preparation for the big event!

Had I tried for the former, it would have probably driven my husband supremely nuts. (He griped when his good buddy's wife asked that their whole bridal party learn a routine for their entrance into the reception. But then, of course, he did it anyway and had a blast!) We had really wanted to take lessons, but somehow ran out of time before we got the chance to ... Still, I'm not sure we could have ever competed with Jimmy and Dominique! Yow.

How awesome is this couple's first dance?! What was yours like?

That was mind-blowing?  Ummmm...no.  i actually found it really boring and far too long.  The dancing was kind of awkard in parts, too.  I'll pass.

I loved it, but it was long. It would have been cute enough to end it after the Dirty Dancing dance. I loved how they lifted the little girl.

Was NOT impressed. Did I miss something?

He was smooth she was awkward her footwork was terrible. I'm surprised they pulled it off without her stepping on his toes.he did very well compensating for her. No this is not me being jealous, this is me being a dance teacher. She couldn't take his lead, she stepped heavy, and used her heels hard which made her off balance and awkward. It's painful to watch because he was actually quite good. She could easily break her ankle if she keeps landing on the back of her feet like that.

Going to numerous weddings of fellow dancers this is boring, and yes I can do better. If your going to recreate Dirty Dancing, than do the lift. I've modified to the martini sipper where I hold a girl above my head with one hand while enjoying an adult beverage in the other.

Was nice...but def NOT mindblowing. Was waayyyy too long, and she wasn't very graceful at all. Why did this even make the news media? *smh*
