Skylar Kearney is a fashion designer in NYC and the oldest of her dad, Gregg's, four kids. She told BuzzFeed News her dad has always been a maniac on the dance floor.

"We have been watching him dance around the house since we were kids," Skylar said of herself and her siblings.

Her dad told BuzzFeed News that he definitely considers himself a ~lord of the dance.~

"Dancing has always been a passion of mine," he said.

Recently, Gregg attended his 30th high school reunion back in Baltimore. He said he hadn't been to a reunion since he graduated, so he figured he should go to this one.

At the reunion, Gregg said he was happy to catch up with many old friends.

"I honestly hadn't seen those guys in 30 years," he said.

After a day of events, the party concluded in a banquet at a hotel. Gregg said he saw the dance floor empty, and knew what he had to do. Bust a move, obviously!

So my dad goes to his 30th high school reunion and him & his boys decide to relive the good ole days. 😂

(Luckily for us, Skylar's stepmom caught the whole thing on film).

Gregg said dancing with his friends brought back great memories.

"The minute we hit that dance floor it was like we went back in time," he said.

When Skylar's stepmom sent her the video, she said she wasn't surprised at all to see her dad's moves. She decided to share it on Twitter, because she thought it was great.

@SkylarMarshai Best thing I've seen on Twitter all day!

"My wife was the instigator bc she thinks I'm her one-way ticket to the Ellen show," Gregg joked.

People totally fell in love with the dads' dancing and her tweet has since been retweeted more than 8,000 times.

@SkylarMarshai Tell your dad and his friends that they killed it!

And others just couldn't handle it.

@SkylarMarshai @AndreaAKAJackie I am *dead*. So glad nobody broke anything. That head spin took me to the ledge.

"Omg, this just made my day and it's only 6:40 a.m."

@SkylarMarshai @DwayneDavidPaul Omg, this just made my day and it's only 6:40 am. 😂

"Your dad and his boys are awesome, best thing I've seen in a long time!"

Both Skylar and her dad said it was incredibly nice that so many people loved the video.

Gregg said they assumed there may be some trolls, but he hasn't seen any negative comments.

"It really made me feel good that this moment of time is making people happy," he said.
