Baby’s fancy footwork brings the house down with epic Riverdance

July 21st, 2020

There are few things cuter than watching a baby get excited about music and dance, except when they can’t stop their feet from moving. Even at a small age, music has a big impact. But then when they get to listen to it along with dancers performing, it’s as though they just can’t sit still.

What’s Riverdance?

For those of you who don’t know, Riverdance is a theatrical show. Primarily, it involves a lot of traditional Irish music and dance. This genre was first introduced in 1994. Since then, it’s gone on to be a huge hit. Since opening in 1995, the show has performed at more than 450 venues around the world.

25 million, plus one

The 25 million is the estimated number of people who’ve seen the show Riverdance. The one is for a tiny baby who watched it and was immediately hooked. Sitting in his bouncy, once the video started, that was it…he too was hooked.

Going viral

The video of this baby was shot by his aunt. As of today, it’s been viewed almost 20,000 times. To keep him entertained for a few minutes, she put the Riverdance video on while he sat in his Johnny Jumper. That’s when the action began.

Captured his attention

From the second the music starts; this baby turns to the television and doesn’t take his eyes off it. He immediately became fixated on the show. Initially, he was sucking on his bib but it wasn’t important anymore.

Look at those legs go

Seriously, this kid isn’t even old enough to walk but he can sure dance. We’re not just talking about jumping up and down but he’s actually lifting his legs in time with the music. His dancing mimics the professional Riverdance performers.

He’s having a blast

The more he “dances,” the more excited he becomes. You can even see a slight smile on his face although he also appears to be concentrating really hard. He’s taking this all quite seriously and we love it.

This baby keeps on going

And he doesn’t have any plan to stop. The more the performers dance the more he tries to keep up. He might be little but when it comes to music and dance, he’s a huge star. So much so that his aunt gave the video the title, “Will ‘Riverdance’ Brown.”

Oops…turning around

At one point, his legs get going so fast and furious that his entire body turns away from the television. But that doesn’t stop him. He might not be able to see the video but he can still kick those legs and do some fancy footwork.

Little showoff

And we say that in the best possible way. From the look on his face, he knows he’s pretty good and of course, adorable. Even as the tempo of the music speeds up, that doesn’t hold him back.

Truly amazing

Most babies would use both of their feet to push off the floor. But not this one. He switches from foot to foot, again in almost perfect timing to the music. If this kid can dance like this now, just imagine what he could do in just a couple of years.
