A tutorial for dancing is also available on that of Phil Wright TikTok account, so it’s easy for anyone to learn it at home. Like sharing a special meal, dancing is a great way for family members of all ages to connect and create memories with music.

“Turkey’s dance celebrates the delicious centerpiece of every festive table – the Jennie-O turkey,” said Nicole behne, Vice President of Marketing at Jennie-O. “Whether you are with your loved ones physically or virtually this year, doing The Jennie-O Turkey Dance is a special way for family members of all ages to create memories and enjoy their time together.”

“When World of Dance and Jennie-O approached me to choreograph a TikTok sensation that could become as iconic as Chicken Dance, I immediately told them I was into it,” Wright said. “For me, the holidays are a magical time filled with food and family. I hope this turkey dance gives people another way to make memories this holiday season while having fun.”

To inspire future turkey dancers, Jennie-O enlisted the help of several celebrity dancing couples to help spread the word on Instagram and TikTok:
