The Footloose actor, arrayed in a snapback, gets into position as he enthusiastically lifts wife Kyra to the side. Then dramatically, identical to the choreography in the movie, he releases Kyra and she twirls down his body. 

Kevin lets one leg loose, as Kyra stretches out one arm, sporting a superwoman-like physique and both end with beaming smiles as they nail the dance number.

Kevin and Kyra have been married for almost 34 years

Both dressed in home comforts, it seems the couple enjoy participating on the Gen-Z app during their downtime. 

The Tiktok was captioned, “I don’t remember this being part of the original #Footloose #dance choreography  but figured we’d give it a spin,” later adding to the comments, “And yes, this was just as hard as it looks.”

Fans were quick to react to the post, with one writing: "Just like that, I’m back in high school in 1984," receiving the top comment status.

Another said: "It’s all fun and games until you're in the emergency department trying to explain this," to which Kevin responded, “We had the same thought right around our second attempt.”

For all we know this might have been the first time Kevin has busted out the dance in 38 years. However we are sure that this is his number one party trick!
