There are some challenging times that come with parenthood. But every so often, you’re treated to a moment that makes you know for certain that being a mom or dad is all worth it.

Take preschool shows, for instance. When kids are in preschool, they’re at that adorable age where you can lightly poke fun at them by putting them into adorably ridiculously on-stage scenarios.

While expectations don’t run high for pre-school performances, this video will change your mind.

The four sweet little boys in this performance mean business. They’re each donning a suit, and each has a chair as a prop.

Considering how young they are, these kids have an impressive amount of rhythm, coordination, and even professionalism.

As the piano kicks in, playing a jaunty tune, the first preschooler walks in.

He’s stepping in time to the tune, carrying a chair in one hand. Then he sets the chair down and claps his hands on his knees.

This is repeated three more times as his peers join him on stage, each with their own tiny chair.

You have to admit, there’s something too cute about seeing boys so young wearing suits.

The kids are fully kitted out in a white shirt with black pants, vest, shoes, and bow ties.

They’ve even got top hats on their heads.

You can tell the boys are excited to be on stage, but they’re concentrating hard on their routine – no time for waving to Mom just yet.

Once they’re all seated in a row, the boys begin their routine.

It’s pretty simple, but there’s definitely a degree of talent involved. The boys clap their knees in unison, stand and march around the chairs, and move their feet from left and right to the center.

Sometimes they’re facing backward, sometimes they’re sideways, and sometimes they’re behind the chairs, but they’re always perfectly timed and ready for the next move.

There’s something old-school about the snappy music in the background, giving the performance the feel of a black and white movie.

The tiny dancers could easily be old men of the past, performing this routine at their local dive.

All four boys give it everything they’ve got, crossing their legs, tapping their feet, and tipping their hats in a perfectly choreographed performance.

Toward the end of the dance, the children take it up a notch, stepping onto the chairs and marching in place.

Then, for the finale, each little boy jumps off his chair.

After one last coordinated march around the chairs, they take their seats and raise their hats.

It was a pure success. You can tell they know they’ve done a good job, and when the crowd cheers, the kids take it in their stride like true professionals.

More than 2.5 million people have watched this adorable performance on YouTube, making it surely one of the most popular pre-school performances of all time.
