VIDEO of eight-year-old Charlie dancing the "(I've Had) the Time of My Life" routine from "Dirty Dancing" has gone viral on social media.

The video shows Charlie giving Patrick Swayze a run for his money as he delivers the dance routine step-by-step.

The video has had over 170,000 views on You Tube and is trending on Facebook after Charlie's mum, Lanie Kristina posted in on Facebook.

She told Buzzfeed: ""He has probably watched it only 10-12 times. He loves to dance and cannot sit when he is watching a music video or anything with dancing in it."

This isn't the first time a video of Charlie has gone viral. 

Charlie's mum Lanie told Buzzfeed he first started dancing when he was three.

"Michael Jackson died and he started watching his videos.

"We posted a video on YouTube when he was 4 for friends and family to see his Thriller moves (the video is called 'Charlie is the Thriller'). He hasn't stopped performing since then."
