The situation turned “traditional” on its head!

Gabe and his mother, Susan took the center stage with what appeared to be the traditional mother-son dance, but the music quickly changed and the audience realized they were in for a treat.

And it’s easy to see where Gabe got his dancing abilities from his mother’s moves.

The dance featured a mash-up of some of history’s greatest songs and the craziest beats.

And the online community couldn’t have been more supportive, as evident by one of the comments saying,

“The mother is a beautiful woman and was adorable dancing with her son! What a great experience for a mother and son! Wonderful memories! 💕”

It went viral on the world wide web, with more than fifteen million views!

That’s crazy, right? The rhythm started slow and smooth, began with a waltz and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.” Then things started picking up, and Billy Jean begins to play with background bass sick beat!

The two were well aware that they were being watched as they danced with merriment and grace.

An absurd backflip

Gabe and his mother were really hurling things around! The two turned it up a notch when Jennifer Lopez’s “On the Floor” came on. Gabe’s next move was incredible: he did a backflip on the floor!

Who knows how many flips he had practice for that specific cue!

Finally, there was the spiced groove with Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.”

Oof, the estrogen levels were through the roof with this one with the hip movements (and smacking) and how gracefully eccentric the both of them appeared here as well as throughout the session.

Ultimately, the audience praised the adorable performers with all the cheers and love they deserved, which was followed by a sweet embrace between Gabe and his mother.

As one season of life came to an end, the display of love and affection between the two was incredible to witness.

To finish it off, it wasn’t anything flashy or promotional, just two family members having a good time doing something they probably enjoy doing in their spare time.
