As we all move through different levels of pandemic-induced lockdowns, we sometimes just need a little feel-good moment courtesy of the internet. This video of a mom and her son tap dancing will most likely do the trick!
The video was uploaded to Twitter by Lizzi Gee, an accomplished choreographer, who used her own talents to bond with her 8-year-old son, Rufus. She started teaching him how to tap dance nine months ago during a lockdown order and, based on the video, he’s a quick study.
In the nearly one-minute clip below, Gee and Rufus run through matching choreography, and the child has some serious moves. At the end of the routine, both he and his mom grin as they finish in tandem.
Yes, it’s as cute as it sounds.
This is my younger son Rufus. He started to learn Tap dance with me only 9 months ago. He’s 8! Using lockdown to learn. I’m a proud mum. We hope it makes you smile. Tap is joy in our eyes and has been our escapism 🥰 pic.twitter.com/5VaWmU4Ghj
