Dad and daughter steal hearts with kitchen quarantine dance

October 1st, 2020

Staying home to help flatten the curve presents a whole new challenge: keeping yourselves occupied.

Even the more introverted ones are starting to feel the effect of staying home too long. After all, one does occasionally need to step out, get some air, and socialize. In finding hobbies and other activities to help pass the time and make the days happy and bearable, people have really let their creative juices flow.

From painting to cooking, to gardening and interior design, being in quarantine has definitely opened up a box of possibilities.

It has even brought families closer together.

Definitely the kind of refreshing content we all need.

Michael and Ali Hoffman are a daddy-daughter duo who aren’t new to going viral.

The first time they took the internet by storm was about five years ago when they made a dance video while stuck in Dallas.

“When it ices up in Dallas, we celebrate the only way we know how! We expect you to get your groove on… and post it!”

The idea came to them when they realized they couldn’t go anywhere because of icy roads.

Years later, they’re back with another fun video.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak and having to stay home, the pair have once more decided to grace the online community with a feel-good dance video set to Jess Glynne’s “Hold My Hand“.

Big on feeling good and making the most of each moment, the father-daughter pair have also decided to inspire everyone else to follow suit by labeling their video #QuarantineChallenge2K20.

In the description box, they write,

“When the times seem a little dark it’s just a call to be more LIGHT! Let your joy fly, crank the tunes and dance in the kitchen!”

Not even 72 hours after sharing their video online, Michael and Ali Hoffman were surprised to see that it already garnered over 183K shares and 5 million views.

Their videos always seem really simple at the beginning, but it’s during the more upbeat parts of the song where they really let loose and put on a show for their audience.

For instance, in this video, Ali starts off by lip-syncing and doing a bit of air piano motions. Then in comes Michael, moving in time with the beat and singing along in his own goofy way.

You can even see Ali trying hard not to laugh as she lip syncs and watches her dad do his thing.

As the tempo of the song increases, their dancing escalates.

From simply moving along to the song to actually busting out choreographed moves, Ali and Michael show how easy it is to have a good time at home.

Definitely a fun-loving pair, Ali and Michael also made their dance video more entertaining with their animated facial expressions.

Their smiles and their dancing are so infectious that even Ali’s mom, Michele, couldn’t resist joining in and grooving along!
