DeAndre Upshaw and Stuart Hausmann were together for five years before Upshaw decided to propose.

The proposal, as it turns out, was worth the wait.

Upshaw, from Dallas, Texas, spent four months planning the event, which featured two different songs, four costume changes for him and a cast of 50 dancers.

“I work in production and am very used to creating detailed schedules,” he told Revelist. “I had a five-page master document that detailed exactly what I wanted, and enlisted the help of Danielle Georgiou Dance Group to help coordinate movement and choreography. We had a secret Facebook group that I invited everyone to, and posted videos of dance rehearsals to it.”

Incredibly, Upshaw’s dancers only rehearsed twice before the proposal, which took place on the track of a Dallas middle school where a friend of the couple teaches theater.

The cast included friends and family Hausmann hadn’t seen in years – Upshaw reached deep into the couple’s Rolodex to populate the routine, which included ribbon and flag dancers.

Oh, Hausmann said yes. That seems like an important detail. We can’t wait to see what they have planned for the first dance at their wedding.
