Cop Called To End Kids’ Dance Event Ends Up Teaching Them How To Salsa

This police officer in San Antonio, Texas, has sure got some smooth moves.

When a neighbor called cops out to shut down a children’s dance club event that was being held in a backyard late Saturday, the unidentified officer went off script — and ended up teaching the attending youngsters how to dance salsa.

See how it went down here:

Leslie Sapp, whose daughter was attending the Next Generation Dance Crew event, shared the above footage of the heartwarming moment to Facebook. It’s now going viral.

Instead of shutting it down or even interrupting, the officer asked to play a song and then his song came on, and well, the video speaks for itself,” Sapp told KSAT.

The officer danced with several children and posed with the crew once the song had ended. 

Sapp said the officer had helped alter her daughter’s perception of law enforcers. “As a parent, especially these days, there is a lot of negativity in the world when it comes to cops, and he broke that stereotype,” she said.
