The 8-year-old boy with the spot-on Patrick Swayze impression brought his hip-swiveling swagger Wednesday to TODAY for a live demonstration of how he nails the finale routine from the movie, “Dirty Dancing."

A video of young Charlie Stone shadowing Swayze’s moves from the movie's final scene received more than 11 million views after his mom posted it to Facebook.
