A Nebraska State Patrol officer and his daughter were captured dancing together in their home.
A video of Lieutenant Tyler Kroenke and his six-year-old daughter Miela dancing at home got over 200,000 views on Facebook.
Miela’s dance competition season was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
So her dance studio challenged its dancers to teach a parent their routine.
Miela wanted to teach her dad who said it took about a week to learn and thought posting a video of it, would give someone a reason to smile about.
“I was sitting on the couch with the wife and I was like how about you post that to Facebook and give somebody a laugh, ill take it at my expense,” said Lt. Kroenke. “I’m just tired of scrolling through Facebook and seeing story after story about COVID and it is important but we need to see something else and make people happy. I’m glad to see it worked and I’m glad to see it keep getting shared.”
Lt. Kroenke says he thinks colleagues at work will probably see the video, but says he’s always been a girl dad and supporting his daughters tops a few laughs around work.
After Lt. Kroenke’s daughter’s dance competition season was postponed, her dance studio challenged the dancers to teach a parent part of a dance as a way to continue practicing. Lt. Kroenke is a great sport and happily participated. GOOD WORK Sir! #QuarantineLife pic.twitter.com/F2kLKlVyWc

The pair said that their first dance took a long time to learn and that they are not really sure if they would be able to do an encore performance.
