Grumpy Ballerina Hilariously Steals Show At Dance Recital.

Unless you’re a born performer, stage fright can be a hard thing to overcome.

When four little ballerinas took the floor for their very first dance recital, the tiny dancers, all four years old, looked incredibly cute in their little tutus, tights, and sleek ballerina buns. But when the music started, it became immediately clear that one ballerina did not belong…


Some showtime jitters were to be expected, but the little girl on the left was clearly grumpy – with a capital G!

While the other girls look off stage to their instructor and attempt to follow the routine they’d practiced, the odd dancer out seems to be overcome by a serious case of stage fright from the second she steps into the spotlight.


At one point, the little girl next to her attempts to draw the sullen child into the dance by reaching for her hand, but she’s not having any of it. The look on her face is priceless!

We’ve all felt that way, haven’t we?


Judging by the laughter coming from the audience, it seems that instead of ruining the recital, this tiny dancer actually made it much more entertaining.

One thing is for sure, this is one video that the little diva’s family will cherish – and laugh over – for her entire life!

Watch the hilarious video below, and be sure to share with anyone who could use some cheering up today!
