Kids

Adorably tiny ice skater melts hearts when she starts shimmying

January 7th, 2021

Kids are amazing at so many things. One minute, they’re just learning their ABCs and the next, they’re showing amazing potential in art, music, and sports. That’s the wonder of fostering the right kind of environment as they grow up: they’re able to explore, learn, and express themselves freely and with confidence, with you watching and guiding. As they express interest in different things, you get to see just how skilled and talented they are – a reminder that they’re not to be underestimated at all.

Take figure skater Seo Eun Shin.

She’s the stuff Disney movies are made of: pretty, charming, and determined. Perhaps that’s why she chose to skate to the delightful track from Disney’s Frozen called “Love Is An Open Door“.

The first thing you’ll notice about her is her size and of course, that oh-so-cute face. She’s among the youngest figure skaters to ever take on the ice.

Braving falls and slips, Seo Eun Shin continues to push and do her best in hopes of learning more and perhaps reaching pro status someday.

The little charmer couldn’t have picked a more perfect audio backdrop for her routine. She even had the costume to match, looking adorable as ever with her hair pulled back in a tight bun. Slowly but surely with her legs moving in a figure eight motion, she began to demonstrate what she can do on the ice as she made her way towards the middle.

With a shy smile on her face, Seo Eun Shin began to glide across the ice with her arms stretched to her sides. Reaching her position at the center of the rink, she stood adorably with hands on her hips, head tilting side to side to the beat of the song. Then she started rocking her hips, causing her skirt to swirl beautifully.

As she danced and moved along to the Disney track, she carefully glided to and fro, moving both hands and feet as gracefully as she could manage.

Impressively, the little skater could even lift one leg off the ice and balance on the other. That’s not easy to do when you’re just learning – even adults lose their balance occasionally.

Little stumbles and a small fall didn’t ruin her routine either. She handled herself with such poise that the audience just had to applaud in appreciation and encouragement as she got back on her feet.

“Awwwww, she’s so widdle! Haha, I love Frozen.”
“When she fell my heart broke she is so cute omg I love her.”
