Kevin Bacon Recreates Iconic 'Footloose' Dance For His Entrance On Jimmy Fallon's Show

Actor Kevin Bacon still has the moves.

The 55-year-old actor made an impressive entrance onto Friday night’s “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” recreating the iconic dance performance first seen 30 years ago in the film, “Footloose.”

The original 1984 version is here, but here’s the performance from Friday:
