Spunky 4-Yr-Old Boy Lights Up Internet With Hysterical “Boom Boom” Dance.

At the end of the school day, all of the preschoolers in Joanna Marie Berte Sobremisana’s classroom were ready to blow off some steam.

The Iloilo City, Philippines school teacher says her kids were begging to hear the K-Pop song “Boom Boom” by Momoland, so she put on the poppy dance track and and started recording. All of her students were busting out their best dance moves, but one little boy stood out from the crowd.


llyam Augustine Manuel is just 4 years old, but he’s already mastered the art of hip hop dancing! The cute little nugget just couldn’t resist putting all of his flair into doing the “Boom Boom” dance, and he’s just too adorable for words.


Ilyam’s mother is their town’s police superintendent, Sally Manuel. She says her son has been dancing up a storm since he was one year old — before he could walk he was already feeling the beat and shaking his little hips like he was born to do so!


After his teacher’s Facebook video hit the web, so many people watched Ilyan’s “Boom Boom” dance that he’s now becoming a bit of an internet phenom. Joanna’s video has now been watched over 17 million times on Facebook alone, and the clip seems poised to continue on its viral trend as it catches on across the world.


Little Ilyan is just too much! The way he throws his hands up in time with the music then adds a sassy little shoulder dip makes him look so much older than his age. Something tells us that this love of dancing is going to last his whole life. He’s so full of joy that it makes us happy just watching him.

Check out Ilyan’s smooth dance moves in the video below, and don’t forget to share to make others smile today too!
