Parents stand onstage with daughter, bring house down when music comes on with hip hop moves

May 9th, 2019

Phil Wright is a renowned dancer and choreographer who travels the world to bring slick moves to the masses. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you can dance – he makes magic happen. He’s even managed to get kids and parents dancing together!

While we all feel like we had some great moves in our heydays, parents’ dancing is often a source of extreme embarrassment for their children (much to the amusement of some of those parents!). So, usually, the last thing a kid wants is to have their parents join them during a hip hop class.

But Wright invented a genius new bonding experience for parents and kids called The Parent Jam which encourages kids and their parents to learn some choreography and put on a show together – and the results are incredible! You can just see the fun they’re having by the smiles on their faces.

The kids take center stage in his compilation videos and often have some serious talent. And the parents are no slouches – even though they tend to be in the background, doing a bit less hair-whipping and pop-and-lock, their energy and good humor make these videos addictive to watch. And, hey, some of them are truly great dancers too! There’s a reason Wright’s videos go viral immediately.

One of the most popular videos in the bunch is from 2017, when 8 groups of parents and kids danced to Ayo & Teo’s super-catchy “Rolex.” It’s been viewed 15 MILLION times. Here’s why…

First up is a young woman and her mother who both have some serious style. But the girl is WAY into her performance, not only nailing every move but busting out an attitude to match. She’s clearly been dancing for quite some time and has music and rhythm in her soul.

Next up is another mother-daughter duo who really get the crowd into it. We’re loving those matching headbands and sass. They even have great t-shirts – mom’s says “The Original” and her daughter’s says “The Remix.” So freaking adorable!

These two even play off each other a bit in their choreography and while the kid has some major moves, it’s mom’s great attitude that leaves everyone smiling. It’s hard not to fall in love with these two while watching!

The next group is a classic. A mom and her two sons take over the floor, but there’s only so much choreography the young one can do. The older brother, however, is taking it seriously enough for everyone – we love it!

Nevertheless, both boys get it together for a great performance. Make sure you check out his moves at 3:16 to see what this little guy is capable of. We could seriously watch this video all day long!
