A breakdance night happens about once a week at Centennial Square in Victoria, B.C., and it goes off without incident.
But on Tuesday, the cops showed up — and the evening took a groovy turn.
Constables Mike Russell and Gord Magee decided to join the fun with their best moves, including the worm and, er, this little number:
"This was the first time an officer has been down there," Victoria police Const. Matt Rutherford told HuffPost B.C. on Tuesday.

"Stuff like this happens all the time," Rutherford said. "It's just that, on occasion, a video gets taken. It's a neat story and a great example of community policing."
And the dancers loved it.
"Judging by the reaction on the video, it looks like everyone enjoyed the officers' attempts at dancing," Rutherford added.
Russell, who tweeted videos of the hoe-down, closed out the night with a mic-drop tweet.
If you judge cops' worth by their arrests or tickets, our night would have been worthless to you. I bet those we helped would say otherwise.— Mike Russell (@CommunityMike) February 24, 2016
