A touching video of a young man dancing with his "nanny" has gone viral and moved people to tears.

The video, by Jarryd Stoneman of Paraparaumu, has been shared more than 4700 times on Facebook since being posted yesterday morning.

He captioned the video: "Asked nanny for a dance. She can't remember much but she still knows how to move."

The footage shows the two dancing together to the song 7 Years by Lukas Graham. At one point Stoneman pauses to kiss his grandmother on the cheek and the top of the head.

He tells his nanny: "Can't walk, but can dance."

The video has moved people to tears, with comments such as: "beautiful" and "the cutest thing I've ever seen".

Commenting on the video, Benita Burland said: "That was too beautiful for words. Literally bawling my eyes out. Thank you Jarryd for taking such great care of our most precious Taonga."
