L.A.-based choreographer Phil Wright just performed an epic proposal and we can’t get enough of it – and neither can the Internet!

At 4:07, Phil drops on one knee to Ashley's most pleasant surprise and the room erupts in wild cheers.

Mashable reports that the two met eight years ago in Miami, when Ashley signed up for Phil's hip-hop class and three years later they moved to Los Angeles to pursue their dancing careers.
