Who needs pre-wedding dance lessons from that Arthur Murray guy when you can get choreography from ‘Dancing With the Stars’ pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy instead?

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky‘s ‘sultry’ first dance as husband and wife — part of a little wedding celebration that went down Saturday in New York — was not only on-trend, wedding reception wise, but it was choreographed by the ballroom pro, People reports.

‘It was an amazing, funny, unexpected dance,’ a friend of the bride told the mag.

Chmerkovskiy partnered with Erin Andrews in the most recent season of ‘DWTS’ and has in the past danced with Tia Carrere, Laila Ali, Denise Richards, Misty May-Treanor, Willa Ford, Debi Mazar and Mel B, who was the runner-up that cycle.
