Grandpa Dancing With Granddaughter Across the Street | Video

This Grandpa Does Daily "Socially Distant" Dance-Offs With His Granddaughter, and We're Swooning

I haven't posted on fb in forever...but I love this video so much! This is the street that separates my house from my parent's house, and is typically crossed multiple times throughout the day. Kira loves her "Papa" so much and they've now started daily "dance offs" since the virus is keeping them separated. My Dad is turning 81 years old next month and I've never seen him dance, but he's really putting forth great effort and has some special moves!!!! 😄 I'm sure the workers think we're crazy!!!

One of the hardest aspects of social distancing for Sherrie Neely is having to tell her daughter, 6-year-old Kira, that she can't walk the dozen yards to visit her grandparents, who moved into the neighbouring house when Kira was just a baby.

"This is the street that separates my house from my parent's house, and it's typically crossed multiple times throughout the day," Sherrie said in a Facebook post.

Instead of crossing the street to see each other, they're now attempting to do the next best thing.

"Kira loves her 'Papa' so much, and they've now started daily 'dance-offs' since the virus is keeping them separated," Sherrie said. "My dad is turning 81 years old next month, and I've never seen him dance, but he's really putting forth great effort and has some special moves!"

And, as evidenced by the sweet video she shared, Sherrie isn't exaggerated. Her dad carries his own in the adorable competition, even when others pass by. "I'm sure the workers think they're crazy!"

As hard as it's been, Sherrie said the fact they can still get outside and "have fun from a distance means everything to us."

The 30-second video has been viewed nearly 330,000 times, and it's making us all wonder: can they set up a live feed?
