No wedding is complete without a good dance party, right? But what about a dance off? That's what a dad planned for his sister's wedding: a dance battle with his 11-year-old son.

When Shawn Hanaee's sister got married last month in Michigan, he got his son, Anthony, to help him get the crowd pumped up at the wedding reception.

It was a dance battle for the ages, which had over 400,000 views on YouTube as of Tuesday morning.

Anthony started the dance off by getting the whole wedding crowd on the dance floor.

"Listen, old man," the 11-year-old called his dad out. "I heard that you used to be a good dancer, back then... but now this is my time! So if everybody could please get onto the dance floor except that old man."

Shawn danced to old school classic songs like "YMCA," while Anthony brought the current music with hits like "Turn Down for What" and "Gangnam Style."

The dad has clearly been teaching his son how to dance for a while, since they posted this dance video together back in 2012, showing off Anthony's "moves like Dad."

And way back in 2011, when Anthony was only about 8 years old, he showed off his skills to an LMFAO song in another video on his dad's YouTube channel.

As far as the wedding dance battle goes, we can't tell who the winner was, but you can tell by the cheering that the crowd definitely loved both dancers.
