Mom And Daughter Bring Smiles With Fun “Footloose” Dance

July 23rd, 2020

Quarantine puts a halt on a lot of things, but it certainly doesn’t stop people from getting creative.

A talented mom and daughter pair from Myrtle Beach decided to keep doing what they loved – and their video is going viral! In it, they throw on their dancing shoes and transform their entire home into a performing stage.

Who’s ready for some “Footloose?”

Erica Pike and her daughter Izzy share the same passion for dance. Turns out, they make fantastic dance partners too.

The duo’s video is filled to the brim with entertainment. Get ready for a wide variety of costumes, backdrops, and excellent choreography – all combined with the ultimate dance song.

Who needs an actual stage when you have everything at home?

They have tons of experience.

Erica is a dance professional who in the past worked at The Carolina Opry Theater and on cruise ships. According to her Facebook page, she’s a dance teacher, choreographer, homeschool Mom, and “wifey.”

Apparently, Izzy is following in her mom’s footsteps because she’s also an amazing dancer! She has a new YouTube channel called “Izzy T.V.” where she shares cheerful dance, song, and lip-sync videos. There’s even one where Izzy and her mom pair up and dance to a medley of Broadway classics.

The duo’s “Footloose” video going viral is what inspired them to create Izzy’s channel.

In the YouTube video description, it says:

“Izzy and her mom showing Covid-19 can’t stop the dancing. Stay safe everyone. We posted this video on another platform and in 5 days received 150,000 views, so we decided to start Izzy T.V.”

It’s a showstopping performance that might have you wanting to lace up your own dancing shoes.

Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose” is one of those songs that’s near impossible to not bop along to. And if you’re a fan of the movie? Look out!

With how fun and uplifting “Footloose” is – it’s no wonder Erica and Izzy chose it for their quarantine dance (which they completely rock). The routine matches up with the tune perfectly, so get ready for lots of energy!

They don’t skimp on creativity.

Erica and Izzy must have put a lot of thought into their performance because it’s full of costume and scenery changes. The ladies show off their incredible dance skills wearing a mixture of dresses, outfits, pajamas, and great footwear!

At one point, young Izzy switches her dress multiple times in a matter of 10 seconds (thanks to awesome video editing, of course).

The mother-daughter team also appear to utilize every part of their home during the video.

From dancing in the kitchen to busting a move on the front porch – it’s a “Footloose” routine that’s amusing from beginning to end.

There are even some circus acts.

Erica’s husband, Nick Pike, is a professional acrobat, juggler, and comedian – so he joins them in the spotlight as well. Seriously, can this family get any more fun?
