NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — One NYPD officer showed off his finest moves on the dance floor Tuesday night.

It happened as the Boys and Girls Republic hosted its “Lite Feet” challenge in the East Village.

Video shows Officer Christopher Lazarre busting a move for the crowd.

The Ninth Precinct says when the NYPD got called out, Lazarre, a neighborhood coordinating officer, took the challenge and held his own.

“I’m just having fun. I’m not looking to really compete against anyone. I don’t think that I would be able to keep up with any of the kids because they have some pretty serious moves, but as of now, it’s just having fun, just dancing along with everyone,” Lazarre said.

If challenged again, he says he’ll step up without missing a beat.
