When Detective Sergeant Gary Sanders of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department responded to a complaint about a loud noise, it was the spark that ignited the epic dance war that followed. After responding, Sergeant Sanders found himself in the middle of a dancing class with a bunch of ladies of varying ages.
“I’m going to have to give you a ticket because the noise is simply too loud,” the officer said.
On the other hand, several teenage dancers who were in the middle of throwing a dance party at the time suggested a different approach to the problem that needed to be solved.
The charismatic young dancers issued a challenge to Detective Sanders and the rest of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department to compete in an epic dance battle. Detective Sanders, a man of integrity, bravery, and strength of character, did not back down from the unusual task. After the time and location had been determined, Sergeant Sanders left the dancing class and went into hiding.
When the long-awaited day finally arrived, the well-respected law enforcement officials showed up dressed in their uniforms, while the young dancers arrived wearing baseball jerseys that matched each other.
The dace match started as soon as possible, so as not to waste any time.
The young women from Image Dance Studio impressed everyone with their skill and style as the policemen did their best to keep up with them.
At the conclusion of the night, both the cops and the females had a good time dancing together in an almost coordinated manner. The actions that took place were filmed and uploaded to the police department’s YouTube channel shortly after.
The footage makes it quite clear that the dance off was an act all along. According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, the dance battle was carried out in conjunction with the Image Dance Studio in an effort to get closer to the community that they are sworn to protect and serve.
The police officials in Pierce County are hoping that the video will show people that there are still decent officers out there, that there are still officers in the police force who are willing to put in long hours and work hard to serve and protect their communities.
