Spanish Wedding Oddity?

I did a wedding recently and about halfway through the bride and groom got up on a chair in the middle of the dance floor while guests at the wedding ran around them like crazy until the bride and groom fell down. Just currious what to call this. I have attached a still image. (Yes the quality sucks)

Thanks

Depends on how tradtional they are. Last year I did 2 Spanish weddings and they did this at 1 but not the other-this year I have done 2 Spanish weddings and although they both held pretty close to the traditions for the ceremony neither did the running falling down thing at the reception.
I guess it's all up to how closley they hold to tradition. BTW when this happened the first time I was not at all aware they were going to do it and I darn near got run over a couple of times by the male guests. I finally got smart and backed all the way to the wall. Whew! ;-)

Not trying to be a smart a$$, but have you asked your clients?
