These students at the Hooley School of Irish Dance did an awesome routine at one of their teachers’ wedding.

Gretchen (the bride), is a T.C.R.G. at Hooley who trains and inspires countless students in the art of Irish step dancing. T.C.R.G., or Gaelic Teagascóir Choimisiúin le Rinci Gaelacha, means a “certified Irish dance teacher.”

Gretchen and her soon to be husband stand in the back round and watch the girls put their skills to the test.

At the beginning of the video, two girls take to the dance floor and begin dancing their hearts out.

That’s when two more dancers join them and the four performers proceed to break it down.

People cheer as the four Irish step dancers kick their legs and tap their feet, all while maintaining still upper bodies.

Not only that, but the girls also manage to keep huge smiles on their faces the entire time!

Irish step dance is typically done by keeping a stiff upper body while your legs kick with rapid precision and these girls have it down.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, six more dancers hit the dance floor.

Now with 10 dancers, the real show begins!

With “One Foot” by WALK THE MOON playing through the speakers, the dancers all stay perfectly on cue with each other and the music.

They maneuver around the dance floor with grace, continually shifting formations while rotating into different positions.

This takes some serious stamina, and the dance team never stops moving the entire performance. About two minutes into the video, the bride surprises the dancers by running out to join them.

She kicks off her shoes and hops onto the dance floor already dancing.

After that, the flower girl also comes into the mix shoeless as well. Still wearing their formal dresses, the bride and flower girl join hands mid-dance and start cutting a rug.

The other dancers cheer them on in the background until the flower girl runs off-screen and the other dancers start dancing behind the bride. As if this weren’t cool enough, there’s still one awesome surprise in the video.

For the grand finale, the bride drags the groom onto the floor and they share a dance.

With the other 10 dancers still going full speed, the bride brings her new husband front and center for some twirls before he dips her and gives her a big fat kiss.

What a brilliant way to honor your dance teacher—clearly she’s training these girls right because they do a phenomenal job.
