Their father-daughter relationship was torn by run-ins with the law and battles with addiction. For a while, they didn’t even speak to each other – for 25 years.

But now, two years after Tatum and Ryan O’Neal reconnected following the death of his longtime love, Farrah Fawcett, they were able to put their differences aside – and put on their dancing shoes – to reach out to those in need at the Hollywood Arts Center for homeless and at-risk young adults.

“My dad loves to dance. He’s been dancing since I remember,” Tatum, 47, says in a preview of the finale of their OWN show, Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neals. “So it was great to see him dance because he’s quite a good dancer.”
