Juneteenth is this weekend and this tiny dancer’s knockout performance is the powerful energy we’re bringing to the holiday this year.
The new national holiday is all about celebrating freedom for all Americans, not just a select few. That means Juneteenth has an innate sense of joy and liberation. Sometimes there’s nothing more freeing than dancing like there’s no one watching.
“My grandbaby brought the fire,” the original caption read.
The pink and yellow tutu-wearing little girl was in a dance recital with four other performers but she was upfront for a reason. Little @Caprithedancer was the only one who delivered the choreography perfectly without missing a beat or losing her confidence. She even got her own solo and was the last one to walk off the stage, leaving the crowd cheering for more.
“She understood the assignment,” a user wrote.
“She ate that and left no crumbs,” another said.
“Omg not me hyping her up and I’m not even there. I wish I had that much confidence at her age,” a person commented.
“She killed this performance!” someone replied.
