— -- Police officers in San Antonio, Texas, responded to a noise complaint on April 22 but were surprised to see what was causing all the ruckus.

Leslie Sapp said someone complained about the loud music at an event for her child's dance club.

When officers arrived on the scene, they saw children involved in an epic dance-off.

"Instead of shutting it down or even interrupting, the officer asked to play a song and then his song came on, and well, the video speaks for itself," Sapp told ABC affiliate KSAT.

As seen in the video originally posted on Facebook, the officer gets on the dance floor, ready to show the kids the best way to salsa.

The officer grabs Sapp’s daughter's hand, and lights up the dance floor, twirling her and shaking his hips.

Sapp's daughter said dancing with that cop changed her attitude about law enforcement in general.

Her mom echoed those comments. "As a parent, especially these days, there is a lot of negativity in the world when it comes to cops, and he broke that stereotype," Sapp told KSAT. "He didn’t have to take his time to do that and could have just [gone] in and shut it down."

Sapp's child's dance club, the Next Generation Dance Crew -- or NXG Dance Crew for short -- is an organization that works to encourage youth to express themselves through dance.

The Facebook post has received over 4,000 shares and the video has been seen over 282,000 times.
