NEW ORLEANS, (WVUE) -

The rhythm of the music in New Orleans can sweep a person away. This time it got to an entire wedding party.

Choreographed dances during receptions are becoming the hot thing on YouTube. Everyone wants to see their big day go viral. Justin and Ashlee York, a.k.a. "The New Yorks" put together a routine, hoping to entertain their friends and family during their March wedding.

The girls owned this one, dipping into classic dance moves like "Back the Bus Up" to a "Boogie Down" before sliding into a "Caustic Potash" with a "Modified Ed Lover Dance" – very tricky indeed. The "Pitbull Shake" and "Prep" were the icing on the wedding cake. Noticeably absent from the routine, however, were the New Orleans classics "Monkey on a Stick" and "Walk it Like Dog." That could cost them some points on social media.

The guys only managed that lasso dance that you always see when someone plays "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy." They kind of went Michael Jackson with a John Travolta-esque arm pump towards the end. But the bride and her crew properly served them, and shooed them off of the dance floor.

The moves have some derriere flair towards the end of the video, called the "Best Wedding Party Dance of All Time 2014."

Whether you agree with that claim or not, the Yorks have a classic wedding memory to share with their family years from now.
