Little Charlotte loves to dance. And nothing is going to stop her once she gets out on the floor.
Her mom learned that the hard way when she brought the babe to a ballroom dance showcase.
They say dance like no one’s watching, but this toddler danced like she wanted to be seen!
Charlotte decided she was not content to simply watch the fun, so she took to the floor right next to the dancers and started bopping along to the beat.
And like any toddler at the center of people’s attention, she looks awfully proud of herself for getting up out of her seat.
While she does stop to check out what else might be going on around her on the dance floor for a moment, it’s clear she’s not impressed.
She’s not trying to emulate those moves when she’s got a style all her own.
“I was sitting here saying watch out for that BABY, like that couple could hear me,” said a commenter who would clearly rather watch babies than ballroom.
About 40 seconds in, mom rushes out to get her out of the way.
We’re not sure where she was prior to that, especially since someone is clearly recording just Charlotte, but we think this was a less formal performance, so perhaps she wasn’t in the way to begin with.
But by the look on Charlotte’s face, she doesn’t intend to go quietly back to her seat with mom.
Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.
You’re going to have to catch her first, mom! And that’s hard to do when she decides to run towards the dancers performing!
Did anyone really expect a toddler to be content to just sit and watch while there was so much energy on the dance floor?
Eventually, mom gives up. Charlotte’s in charge of the floor now.
About a minute in, most of the dancers have stopped and it looks like the floor is clearing out. Since mom walks away we imagine that the little one has the all-clear to get out the rest of that energy.
And let’s just say she does not turn down the opportunity!
Charlotte really knows how to take advantage of her moment in the limelight.
After testing out a few more moves, she can’t help but just be joyous that all the adults have left the floor and she can now dance in peace!
If the other videos on this family’s YouTube channel are anything to go by, it’s safe to say that this dancing diva got some of her smooth moves from her dad.
And while Michael Johnson’s other videos of his family haven’t gone viral, Charlotte’s ballroom-busting behavior has been viewed nearly 1 million times!
Plenty of people have admitted to watching it more than once though.
“I have watched this at least 15 times!” said one commenter.
As the lights go down on this particular performance, we’d like to think that little Charlotte was giving her mom one quick side-eye as if to say “see, I won!” before stepping off the dance floor. But it’s more likely that she’s just a smiley and adorably little tot.
