Channing Tatum showed off some smooth moves in Step Up, but nothing compares to the proposal he choreographed for his girlfriend Jenna Dewan.

Over the weekend, Tatum asked her to marry him in Maui in front of close friends invited under the radar to surprise Dewan, a source confirms exclusively to PEOPLE. He presented a ring by Neil Lane.

The Cullman, Ala., native first met Dewan, 27, on the set of their 2006 dance hit Step Up, but the pair has always remained coy about their dating life.

When asked about Dewan, Tatum, 28, would only tell PEOPLE: "She's so incredibly sweet."

Dewan must be a lot of fun as well judging from Tatum's description of his dream girl. The actor told PEOPLE in 2006 that he would love to be with "someone who doesn't take herself too seriously and can be a goofball. Because everyone's a nerd inside, I don't care how cool you are."
