Nobody’s going to tell these cowgirls and cowboy they can’t dance.

A group called the Lizard’s Angels entered a dance competition one year in Spain, walking onto the stage in their best country attire. When the familiar beat of “Footloose” began to play, cheers could be heard coming from the crowd. Yet, nobody actually knew how awesome of a performance they were about to witness!

There are some videos out there that make you want to strap on your own dancing shoes. You might want to keep yours handy for this one.

El Barn d’en Greg (Greg’s Barn) is an establishment in Rubí, Catalonia that makes patrons feel like they’ve been whisked away to the United States.

According to their website, they serve American fare and also dish up American culture too with live entertainment, country-style dance classes, and more.

One of El Barn d’en Greg’s events is their country line dance competition. The performance below comes from the restaurant’s seventh time putting it on.

Cowboys and cowgirls are about as American as apple pie. But add in some “Footloose” and it’s like having whip cream and a cherry on top.

All of the members of Lizard’s Angels are dressed in western attire – including cowboy hats, blue jeans, and big belt buckles too. Only moments in they jump into their “Holy Moly” routine, which is set to Blake Shelton’s version of the tune. It’s one that’s full of line dancing steps and has tons of country flair.

Yee-haw, these dancers are on fire!

The five of them stay synchronized as they kick their boots, spin, and swivel their hips. It’s an upbeat and fast-paced routine created by Choreographer David Villellas – and it looks like a lot of fun to do! However, there’s no doubt these contestants put in a lot of practice.

One viewer was so impressed they wrote on YouTube:

During the performance, there isn’t a dull moment and the audience seems to love it too. They go wild at different points cheering for the male cowboy and his four lovely dancing partners.

As you might remember, the original version of “Footloose” was recorded by musical artist Kenny Loggins and appeared in the 1984 film of the same title. Kevin Bacon starred in the teenage classic, which focused around a small town that outlawed dancing (that is until he got involved). A new version of the movie was released in 2011 with Blake Shelton’s country-style rendition of the track.

While “Footloose” is a song that gets many people dancing – Shelton’s cover blends perfectly with the Lizard’s Angels’ performance.

But even if you’re not a huge fan of country music or dancing, it’s hard not to feel energized by their quick-moving feet. In fact, it’s a video that’s racked up more than 18K “likes” on YouTube from people around the world. Although we’re not sure if they won the competition or not – they sure lit the internet on fire!

Another viewer gained inspiration from watching the performance. They wrote:

“WOW impressive guy and girls. I haven’t been line dance for nearly 17 years now but after your great attitude I may have to start all over again.”

Someone else commented:

“dude this is amazing!”
