VIDEO: Utah Teen Creates Dance Tribute to Police Based on Famous Paul Harvey Poem

A bold dance routine by a 14-year-old Utah girl is grabbing online attention, and causing at least one police officer to reach for a tissue.

"I won't confirm or deny that," said a smiling Sergeant Kevin Norris, with the Orem (UT) Police Department. "The first couple times she did that I was emotional. She had tears in her eyes, and I might have been a little misty."

Norris is the uncle of Tylar Olsen, a Lehi competitive dancer who's danced since she was two. Olsen said coming into this dance year, she wanted to find a song to dance to that meant something to her. That's when Olsen's mom, Andrea approached her with an idea.

Andrea stumbled upon a spoken poem by famous radio broadcaster Paul Harvey titled "Policeman." It talks about the challenges, and rewards of being an officer.

After hearing the spoken poem, and digesting its meaning, Tylar Olsen decided she wanted her next dance routine to be choreographed to it. The first time she performed it at a competition, she asked her uncle to come, Fox 13 reports.

Thank You. I had been on the streets for 40 years and retired in 2016. I didn't get thanked much but the out comes of what I did was enough thanks. This dance was one of the best Thank You I have ever seen. God Bless You.
