So you think you can dance? Anyone can do it. What makes dance so nice for us to enjoy is the ability to express ourselves with movement.
Even at a young age, our arms and legs yearn to be stretched in any manner physically possible with a laugh or smile to follow suit. Dance is, in essence, bound to us like a chunk of metal is to a huge slab of magnet.
It’s no surprise then that seeing toddlers have a jig is about as infectiously adorable as it gets. A clip that has over 927k viewers showed a 2-year-old dancing to the swing of an Irish tune for St. Patrick’s Day. It has since gone viral and has some people saying this might be the most adorable toddler dance we’ve seen yet. Take a sip of water and try not to lose your cool over this heartwarming performance!
The video starts with the precious toddler assuming a ballerina-like stance with. Her foot extended with both hands meeting on her back, she sparkles in utter confidence as her smile brightens up the entire room. A white rosebud is carefully placed on her head as an accessory to add a dash of gentleness to her already satin-blonde hair.
Her entire vibe is enough to literally melt your heart if you so much as glance at her. Cool, Calm, and collected, she is ready to begin her river dance routine. In a flash, she takes initiative and begins to lunge her legs out to and fro in front of her. She fears nothing as there’s not a single drop of doubt coming from her.
The blonde star continues slaying it on the dancefloor with a barrage of exquisite dance moves.
Notice how she never lets her hands go the entire time! She is definitely determined to stay committed to her craft and won’t let anything get in the way.
The toddler’s performance was done in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. It was a small token of appreciation in homage to the patron saint of Ireland. Contrary to popular belief, the real St.Patrick was born in Britain near the end of the 4th century. What’s weirder is that even though people in Ireland celebrated St. Patrick’s since the 1600s, the tradition of a St. Patrick’s Day parade began in America and actually predates the founding of the United States.
History lesson or not, nothing is going to stop this bundle of joy’s passion for dance. She may be petite, but she shows a lot of heart and soul with each kick of her foot and twirl of her hips.
Did we mention the accompanying string music? The sweet girl dances to the tune of Irish influenced harmonics that lather the air with a breath of freshness. The sound of the strings in tandem with the little human’s dance routine make our heart flutter even higher!
Irish dance has been around for a very long time. Although the exact dates and origin are speculated among historians, they approximate that it has had its influence with the Druidic, Celtic, and other religious sects that have influenced the dance like the Quadrille.
The tiny dancer finished her routine the same way she started it: with excellence!
The adorable journey comes to an end, not with a bang, but with a bow. She may not have had an audience physically, but this little girl’s performance has been worthy of 927k viewers and 14k likes all just on YouTube.
