A UK fitness trainer has gone viral after hosting socially distant dance sessions each morning for her entire street, which is mostly home to elderly folk.

Twitter user @elsalwilliams shared the glorious footage a couple days back. “Socially distant dancing happens every day on our road at 11am during #lockdown,” she noted. “This was day seven.”

The subsequent snippet depicts Elsa’s entire street, out on their lawns and 2 metres apart from each other, having a communal groove to Tom Jones‘ “It’s Not Unusual”.

Behold 27 seconds of pure joy.

After the post gained traction online, Elsa shared the identity of the mastermind by the morning dance sessions – local fitness instructor Janet Woodcock.

“Distance dancing only lasts 10 minutes a day so causes minimal disturbance,” Elsa further explained. “Mostly our road is kids and elderly residents who are self isolating, so they look forward to it.”

A day later, some media publications rocked up to document the rave. Watch the following footage and tell me the elderly folk’s moves don’t make you cry, I dare you.

This is so damn cute and, once again, my normally-icy heart is melting into a puddle of semi-joy. I blame Janet.

Meanwhile, we’ve all become very creative at trying to responsibly occupy our precious time. Take these two neighbours who made their own DIY seesaw while sporting hazmat gear, for example, or this bored commentator who narrated his dogs eating food. This is 2020, folks. What a world we live in.
