Prepare to be delighted by one little boy from Amsterdam caught on camera practicing his pliés and tendus while watching a ballet class. The video was posted to Facebook on April 1 by Amsterdam-based New Dance Studios and quickly went viral. It currently has been watched over 530,000 times by people all over the world who cannot get enough of these too-cute dance moves (including yours truly).
Though we can’t know for sure, it’s likely his big sister is taking the class. And as a former “bunhead” myself with a big sister who practiced too, I remember well all the time I spent waiting for her class to let out after mine. What else are you gonna do to keep yourself busy? Practice, of course! (And try not to get yelled at for breathing too loudly. Seriously. Ballet instructors run a tight ship.)
But regardless, look out, American Ballet Theater! There’s a tiny dancer possibly headed your way … in (give or take) a decade.
