Travolta appeared as a guest on the late-night talk show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the host requested him to show him his moves.

The Hollywood star also told Fallon how the iconic dance move that appears toward the end of the movie came to be in the movie.

“I grew up with all these kind of novelty dances,” he told Fallon. “In Grease, they needed a step for You’re the One That I Want at the end, so I said, ‘Well, we used to do the four corners. Why don’t we do that?”

The choreographer then asked Travolta to show him the move and he promptly did it. The rest is history.

After hearing about the origin story of the awesome dance move, Fallon could not allow Travolta to leave without letting his audience enjoy it live on the stage.

He asked Travolta if he could show a little bit of the dance move, which the iconic actor referred to as "the four corners."

Travolta did not hesitate and quickly agreed to show the move. He also asked Fallon to join him in the dance.

The 64-year-old actor then proved that he still got the moves in him when he began shaking his hips and legs. Fallon tried to copy his move and soon caught on.

Besides talking about the dance move, Fallon also took time to praise Travolta for his acting and singing skills.

Fallon told the actor that his role in Grease was so iconic that even his nieces were "doing their impressions" of it during a birthday party.
