Maeve asked her grandfather to be her partner for a tap dance recital in the summer which he agreed to. In only took 6 lessons for the pair to get their routine polished out.

Jaime Casey Jones revealed in the caption of her post that her grandfather-in-law, Bill Jones, 72, had agreed to be Maeve Jones' tap dance partner. The two practised for an hour a week for 6 weeks.

The dance was choreographed by Elyse Williamson from the Top Dance Center in Reading, Massachusetts. Maeve had this to say afterwards:

“It’s crazy. My mom says my grandfather loves to dance, and I asked him if he wanted to do a tap duel with me, and we did it. And it’s amazing.”

The two got on stage wearing matching clothes. Bill wore a blue shirt and shorts while Maeve was dressed in a blue and white striped dress.

Rachel’s day involves making sure that her grandfather has all he needs including a round of dancing. The routine has been going on for so long that she’s managed to create a video compilation of her and her grandfather dancing all around the house.
