Guests Gasp When ‘Dirty Dancing’ Lift Goes Wrong And Bridesmaid Flips Over Groomsman’s Shoulders

If you have ever seen the movie Dirty Dancing, you know all about the iconic lift scene. In fact, it’s such a pop culture reference, you probably know it even if you’ve never seen the film.

When this bridesmaid and groomsman wanted to recreate the special dance move for their friends’ wedding, nobody expected it to take such a shocking turn.

In the video below, posted on December 5, 2017, all of the guests watch as the excited bridesmaid runs toward the groomsman, who is more than ready to catch her in his arms. She sprints in her dress, and she jumps up. He lifts her up by her waist.

Then, it all goes wrong.

I’m not sure if it’s a loss of balance or a misplacement or a case of too much momentum, but either way, it’s a recipe for disaster. Their Dirty Dancing lift completely fails when the bridesmaid’s body flies too far forward, and she flips over the groomsman’s shoulders!

All of the guests collectively gasp as the dancing duo falls to the ground in each other’s arms. But not to worry — both of them end up fine!

In the video, the bridesmaid herself says, “In the end, we were absolutely fine. Nobody got hurt. Everybody was good, and we really really enjoyed ourselves.”
