NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Council Speaker Corey Johnson's dance moves were on full display at the Brooklyn Pride parade over the weekend.

Paradegoers captured him grooving down a Park Slope street -- and even doing a toe-touch jump! -- before landing to cheers.

Johnson, who is openly gay, joined Council members and thousands of others for the Twilight Pride Parade on Saturday.

Twitter users applauded Johnson’s skills, including Keith Edwards, a staffer for Johnson.

The parade came days after Johnson called on the NYPD to apologize for its raid of the Stonewall Inn 50 years ago this month.


Commissioner James O’Neill addressed the LGBTQ community Thursday: “The actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive and, for that, I apologize.”

New Yorkers have been marking Pride Month as the city hosts the global WorldPride, the world's largest pride celebration.
