And they have both been self-isolating away from Sherrie's dad, Marvin at their home in Tennessee.

Naturally, Kira is missing her grandad terribly...

So Marvin came up with the perfect solution in these difficult times.

Marvin and Kira decided to meet across the street...

And bust out some dance moves together to their favorite song, "ABC" by The Jackson 5 ... all whilst standing well apart from one another.

Sherrie shared an adorable video of the pair onto Facebook...

"I haven't posted on FB in forever...but I love this video so much! This is the street that separates my house from my parent's house, and is typically crossed multiple times throughout the day," she wrote. "Kira loves her 'Papa' so much and they've now started daily 'dance-offs' since the virus is keeping them separated."

Marvin has been dancing especially for his granddaughter...

via: 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!!!! I'm sure the workers think we're crazy!!" she went on to say.

Since Sherrie shared the video...

It has gone completely viral, with over 10,000 likes and 9,000 shares.
