April 2, 2020 -- Who knew social distancing could be so adorable?

A grandfather and granddaughter in Nashville are warming hearts with their daily social distance dance parties.

Sherrie Neely shared a video of her daughter, Kira, dancing with her 80-year-old father, who lives across the street.

“Kira loves her ‘Papa’ so much and they've now started daily ‘dance offs’ since the virus is keeping them separated,” Neely wrote on Facebook. “My Dad is turning 81 years old next month and I've never seen him dance, but he's really putting forth great effort and has some special moves!!!!”

The video has received more than 700,000 views, since it was posted Saturday, along with countless comments thanking Neely for sharing the sweet moment during a tough time.

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump extended the nation’s social distancing guidelines until April 30, in an attempt to slow the growing number of COVID-19 cases. The CDC says avoiding close contact with others, along with proper hand-washing, can help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.
