John Travolta dances with daughter Ella, 20, in memory of his late wife Kelly Preston

John Travolta enjoyed a dance with his 20-year-old daughter Ella this Friday in honor of her late mother Kelly Preston.

Kelly and John were married from 1991 until she died tragically aged 57 of cancer last month at the family home in Florida.

In a new Instagram video John and Ella could be seen twirling across the dance floor in an otherwise almost completely empty venue, keeping full social distance.

‘My daughter @ella.travolta and I dancing in memory of momma. One of Kelly’s favorite things to do with me,’ John wrote in his caption.

He could be seen twirling his daughter to the soft strains of jazz music, seemingly played by a trio of piano, bass and drums. 

Along with Ella, John and Kelly also shared two sons, including their youngest child Benjamin who is only nine years old.

The family was struck by tragedy in 2009 when their eldest son Jett struck his head in the bath, suffered a seizure and died at only 16.

Last month Kelly died from breast cancer after a two-year struggle with the disease, which she and her family kept secret.

She was pronounced dead at 11:46am on July 12, Us Weekly reported earlier this week citing official documents.

Her death occurred at the family home in Clearwater, Florida and the body was later moved to Brooksville, Florida to be cremated.

John, who played husband and wife with Kelly in the 2018 mafia biopic Gotti, announced her death on Instagram the day after it occurred.

‘It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,’ he wrote.  

‘She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered, I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while,’ the Grease icon continued. 

‘But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal,’ he noted.
