The sheer joy of dancing

wedding danceHave you ever thought about why people dance? Don’t you think dancing is all about joy? Sure, it’s good exercise. Sure, it is artistic. But dancing is much more. Dancing unites people in a joyful expression of celebratory exuberance, especially at weddings. That’s why most wedding celebrations build towards a wedding dance.

But there’s a catch. You’ve got to get your guests to the dance floor first. That’s why a great DJ who specializes in weddings (like us) is vital to the success of a wedding dance. Five Star Entertainment DJs have the entertainment and people skills to get people out of their seats and onto the dance floor.

The dance video that captivated the world

There’s a video that went viral a number of years ago called “Where the hell is Matt?” I’m sure you saw it. This guy, Matt Harding, did something totally crazy when he travelled across the entire world and simply danced, as you can see in the video above.

He danced in Mumbai, India and Paro Bhutan.

He danced in Northern Ireland and Zanzibar.

And he danced in Lancelin, Australia and Lisse, the Netherlands.

In all, he danced across the word, doing his hokey jig in 42 different countries. He even danced in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. Wow!

People around the world came out in droves to dance with this guy. The unbridled exuberance of this union of cultures, united simply by dance, captivated the world. Fifty-one million people have viewed his video to date.

It’s one of those videos that is hard to stop watching, even if you’ve seen it dozens of times (like I have!). 

Look at the faces of every single one of the dancers: sheer joy animates them. As for Matt, his dancing isn’t exactly Fred Astaire or Michael Jackson, which makes it all the more endearing to viewers.

Five Star Entertainment liberates your shy guests from their seats!

You’ll have a whole bunch of people at your wedding like Matt who may not be polished dancers. But all it takes is a little coaxing, done without the least pressure, to liberate these shy dancers from their seats. That’s what Five Star Entertainment knows how to do.

Have you ever been to a wedding where a small group of younger people get up on the dance floor while the more “mature” guests remain glued to their seats? Your wedding dance will be so much better if you can get ALL of your guests united on the dance floor.

That’s the gold standard for a legendary wedding dance, and that’s what we specialize in.

Unleash the sheer joy of dancing at YOUR wedding dance, like Matt Harding does in his video above. Call the wedding dance specialists: Five Star Entertainment at 1-910-323-2409. You can check our availability online.
