Show me your hands, or moves, dancing officer says to teens

WASHINGTON (AP) — Show me your hands, or your dance moves.

A D.C. police officer helped defuse a fight between teenagers in a Washington park by challenging one of them to a dance-off.

Seventeen-year-old Aaliyah Taylor says a woman officer arrived Monday and when she saw Taylor dancing to the popular song, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” the officer laughed and said she had better dance moves.

What happened next was a dance-off between the officer and the girl. Onlookers recorded the dance battle on their cellphones.

The officer said if she won, the teens had to leave the area.

After several minutes of dancing, the two hugged and everyone left the area, according to The Washington Post ( ).
