Kevin Bacon Reprises His Epic Dance Scene From ‘Footloose’ After Jimmy Fallon Bans Dancing On ‘The Tonight Show’

Last night, host Jimmy Fallon declared, to much audience consternation, that dancing had been banned on The Tonight Show. In protest, actor Kevin Bacon impressively reprised his epic final dance scene from Footloose, the 1984 film that shot him to stardom. Later in the show, Kevin talked about how he learned to dance and how much dancing her really did. There was also a great impromptu interview with Kevin’s stunt double.

Of course we would be remiss if we didn’t include the original scene from the film.
