If you grew up in the 80’s you surely know and love the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Alfonso Ribeiro is best known as Carlton of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, but more recently he appeared on Dancing With The Stars and broke out his signature dance move, “The Carlton”.

“I have many most memorable years,” Ribeiro said. “But the most significant years of my life would be the years on ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’ Carlton was someone that I had a blast playing for six years. It was a wonderful time in my life. I love the Carlton dance now. I love how it makes people feel,” Ribeiro said. “I certainly don’t do it a lot, but I love the fact that people have this nostalgic look at that dance. I gotta be honest. This was all for the fans,” Ribeiro said afterward. “I’ve been wanting to do this for them forever. This is a moment I’ve dreamed about many a year. But yeah, I went back. I went back in time.”

Here’s the original Carlton dance from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
