Mom Catches Dad And Tiny Toddler Sharing Cutest Salsa Dance-Off.

All kids love to dance, but some seem to have been born with a natural talent that puts us all to shame.

When Paola Teran of Buford, Georgia, walked into the family kitchen and spotted her daughter, Emma, standing on the counter, we can’t imagine that she was very happy. Thankfully, Emma’s dad was there to spot her and make sure she didn’t fall. In fact, he’s the reason she was on the counter in the first place!


As pumping Salsa music plays in the background, Emma and her dad began to dance, shaking their hips and grinning the entire time. Paola grabbed her cell phone and began recording the sweet father-daughter dance, later uploading it to Instagram where it went viral.


Little Emma looks incredibly cute as she shakes her booty on the counter! She’s wearing an adorable pair of Minnie Mouse pajamas and looks so thrilled to be spending time with her dad.

“Iā€™m a #princess not because I have a prince, but because my father is a #king!” Paola wrote when she uploaded the video online. The video quickly gained hundreds of thousands of views. If you’re wondering why it got so popular, just take a look ā€“ this little girl has some serious moves and is as cute as a button!


We love seeing a great dad playing with his kids. Music is such a powerful and fun way to bond with children, and having nightly kitchen dance parties sounds like a pretty great way to grow up. What a lucky girl ā€“ and lucky for us that we got to experience the Teran family dance-off, too.

Watch the sweet video below and don’t forget to share.
