All The Must-See Looks from The 2019 amfAR Gala Los Angeles

The "Dawson's Creek" alum has been a front-runner all season, inspiring his kids with his Disney Night routine to the music of "Pirates of the Caribbean."

James Van Der Beek has been wowing fans and his family alike with his powerful performances and impressive moves on "Dancing with the Stars" this season, and it looks like the father of five has been serving as inspiration, too.

In an absolutely adorable video shared to his Instagram page, James shared four of his kids (Olivia, 8, Annabel, 5, and Emilia, 3, as well as son Joshua, 7) recreating his most recent performance on the ABC reality competition series, a paso doble set to the music of "Pirates of the Caribbean."

James' fifth child, Gwendolyn, with wife Kimberly was unable to participate because she is only 16 months old so she's not quite ready to master choreography. The couple recently announced on "DWTS" that they just discovered Kimberly is pregnant with their sixth child.

James scored two 9s and an 8 for his performance, enough to put him in a tie for second place on the night, but we'd have to give his kids 10 out of 10 for their exuberant interpretation.

After all, dance is about self-expression. What they lacked in technique -- which was plenty -- they more than made up for in enthusiasm and infectious joy.

"“Omg I’m obsessed! They are adorable!” commented James' professional partner Emma Slater, while former "DWTS" Mirrorball champ Rumer Willis simply wrote, "Goals."

"What you do with all your heart... can be contagious," James wrote as caption to the sweet post. There is nothing more important as a parent than what you do because your kids are always watching.

What James is showing his kids is that you should never be afraid to try something new, because you just might find out you're pretty amazing at it!

A front-runner for much of the season, James remains among the leaders and is a huge fan-favorite. He's battling it out at the top of the leaderboards with Kenan Thompson's pal Kel Mitchell, "The Bachelorette" Hannah Brown and former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke.

While there has been no word yet on a second season of spinoff series "Dancing with the Stars: Junior," we see four competitors ready to sign up right now!

"Dancing with the Stars" airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
