Little Girl Steals The Show Refusing To Dance At Recital

December 4th, 2019

Kids dance recitals are supposed to be full of sweet moments that melt your heart into a puddle. But what fun would it be if there weren’t some moments you could chuckle at too?

One hilarious scene that’s gone viral took place during a Christmas dance performance set to “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Now, it seems like any kid would love dancing to a magical song like “Rudolph.” But if that’s what you’re thinking – you obviously haven’t met the tiny princess in the video below!

Surely the class had worked super-hard to learn their dance routine for the Christmas recital. However, not everyone was happy taking the stage at showtime.

When you sign young children up for sports, you never quite know what’s going to happen. Some flourish, while others kick and scream about having to go.

Then there are those who just refuse to do anything at all…

Everyone had their cameras out recording the girls as they began tapping away. For some reason though, one refused to a budge an inch.

Instead, the girl stands with her head bowed down and her arms crossed. She has that type of stance that says, “I don’t want to do it, and you can’t make me!”

Even watching the enthusiastic dancer next to her wasn’t enough to get the girl’s feet moving. Actually, it kind of appears that she scowls at her classmate who’s rocking her moves.

At one point, the teacher steps in front of the group wearing her tutu and Santa’s beard.

However, the grumpy dancer refuses to follow her directions (and the funny costume doesn’t brighten her up either).

There have been many young dancers over time who haven’t wanted to take the stage during a performance. Fear and anxiety are sometimes the reasons – although maybe a bad mood could easily do the trick too.

We don’t know exactly why this cutie didn’t want to perform her tap routine. Turns out though, it created a comical scene that had the audience chuckling.

As they say, the show must go on!

The class continues to perform their Christmas dance, despite the fact that the girl isn’t participating at all. Then comes a part where she’s supposed to spin with the energized dancer next to her.

Of course, the girl’s not having it and pulls away. But that’s when the other dancer gets understandably a little frustrated. She puts her hands up, perhaps thinking, ‘What is your deal, missy!’

The little sweetheart keeps trying to help her pouty partner, only nothing works.

Usually, our kids’ dance recital videos only get to be seen by family and friends. This performance, however, has been viewed more than 2.9 million times on YouTube since it was posted.

Several people on YouTube have a theory of why she wouldn’t dance. One wrote:

“The little girl next to her wasn’t holding her hand as they walked in, she had her hand on her hip. @ 0:24 she tries to take her hand but by then the other little girl had started dancing. I think she was just maybe upset by then …”

Another woman wrote:

“I’ve seen this several times. In those cases the child was mad because she didn’t get their way with something or they were sleepy. When you get a child like this, you may as well forget it…their brooding!”

Other people had compliments for the dancer who was standing next to the upset girl.

“Ironic how the girl next to her didn’t just perform, she gave it her all. At such a young age, such a great skill. She didn’t let someone else’s attitude affect her.”

It’s a dance recital mishap that you can watch for yourself below!
