You "Can't Touch This" Mother-Son Dancing Duo

It's time to make a case for the forgotten dance of wedding dances: the mother-son dance.

Sure, we get butterflies when we watch a bride and groom share the dance floor for the first time (especially when they put their own, unique spin on it). And we tear up as much as anyone during the father-daughter dance. (Remember that daddy-daughter tap dance? So cute!)

But what about the mother of the groom? Doesn't she deserve a chance to shine?

Yes, yes she does. And mother-son duo Kathy and Blake Bunker show the world how it's done with their newly viral video.

Kathy Bunker is the owner of a dance studio, so it's no surprise she knew how to put together a routine that wowed the crowd. The two dance to hits like The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back," M.C. Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" and LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem." And let's just say, when M.C. Hammer tells them to break it down, they BREAK IT DOWN. Oh, and there's shufflin', naturally.

See for yourself! (And listen out for the voice saying "Whoa!" at the end. It's Aaron Turner from "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 10!)

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
