This Dad dance ensemble is known as “The Christmas Jumpers.”

We’ll see what tricks they have up their collective Christmas sweater sleeves…

They start things off like powered-down robots.

I don’t think I’m ready for what’s to come.

A remix of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” from Tchaikovsky’s masterful The Nutcracker ballet occupies the airwaves.

The dads burst into motion.

They perform a series of creative, robotic choreography perfectly to the music.

The crowd loses their collective minds!

Wow, these dads aren’t half bad. Actually, they’re pretty darn good!

The following image captures the audience’s surprise perfectly!

Side question: who has the coolest Christmas sweater?

These dads can do it all on the dancefloor!

The beats continue in unison with their precise, robotic choreography.

R2-D2 and C-3PO would be jealous!

Dads’ moves are finely tailored to the pulsing electronic cover of the The Nutcracker.

They’re robotic dance nutcracker mad men!

Then, the music winds down, returning the dads to their powered-off positions.

You can practically hear their metallic, robotic gears grind to a halt.

Silence.

Suddenly, the electronic remix unpauses, sending the crowd into a tizzy!

These dads are getting it done!

The choreography is unique and filled with hilarious surprises.

They don’t take themselves seriously, even though they do have some seriously smooth moves!

They’re taking “The Robot” – excuse me, “The Nutcracker” – to the next level!

The remaining members take turns in the spotlight. And it’s glorious!

These dads are way fitter than they look!

I mean, just look at this dad! I wonder if that’s going to hurt in the morning?

Regardless, everybody watching absolutely loves it.

Check out the face of the dad immediately to the right of the soloist. That’s exactly how I feel, too!

The dad in the snowman sweater takes some moments to perform a holiday remix jig to the delight of spectators.

He takes a few moments to take imaginary pictures of himself in line with clicking camera noises from the loudspeakers.

Their confidence and style are contagious!

They’re having so much fun with it!

The electronic remix continues its winding course.

The dancers keep it coming, soon assembling into a group like Voltron.

As the last beats sound out, the dads collectively fall backward as if pushed by an inflating balloon.

Needless to say, the crowd absolutely loses it!

It’s a Christmas miracle!

You may very well never see everyday dads move like this again.

What do you think of The Christmas Jumpers? These dads have transcended the label of “dad”!

What they lack in grace, they make up for in killer choreography!

Who do you think won the best ugly Christmas sweater contest? Obviously, they’re competing against each other!
