Kevin Bacon, who first played the iconic role of Rem MacCormack in 1984, is passing down his dance moves to professional dancer Kenny Wormald who will be recreating the role nearly 27 years later.

Just like everyone else in Hollywood, Wormald – who has starred in music videos for Madonna, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Prince – is connected to Bacon in more ways than one.
