With the help of instructors at Nieves Latin Dance Studio in New York and inspired by the movie Ex Machina, they choreographed a routine that took all of their guests by surprise. They start out like any traditional first dance to It’s A Quiet Thing by Morgana King, when a “malfunction” with the music cuts them off early. That’s when things take a very different turn – check out the video below. (1)
