Footloose Challenge Done Right By Kevin Bacon
Dance challenges arrive and go, but stars rarely join in the fun. This time Kevin Bacon jumped into the TikTok challenge. He did the footloose challenge with his wife Kyra Sedgwick. The choreography was not the same but they both gave it a shot. Kevin writes the caption as “I don’t remember this being part of the original #Footloose choreography 🤣 but figured we’d give it a spin”. As given in the article by al.com.
In short, one person “unrolls” the other toward the floor by holding onto their hands and one leg and holding them horizontally. The two march forward in the brief film while standing on different sides of the lens. They are wearing only dark clothing and no shoes. The song “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins starts playing, and they pay close attention to the beat. Kyra is then picked up by Kevin, who then places himself before releasing her at just the right time.
What Is A Footloose Challenge?
