When Irish dancer Emma O’Sullivan visited a town square, a crowd gathered around.

But a 3-year-old girl, Emma, decided to join in.

The little girl immediately begins to copy the professional dancer, causing the crowd to erupt.

People in the comments section praised everyone involved.

But three year old Georgia decided that Emma’s moves were no match for her foot skills and started to join in. Delights the crowd Georgia couldn’t wait to break free from her parents and join Emma on the “dance floor”.

“Isn’t this WONDERFUL, AMAZING? This is what we should be teaching our children! A little bit of fun, but also our culture, the world is a place we are all responsible for! No violence, no distrust, there is still a chance for generations to come!” said one woman.

Added another: “This is too adorable. What a lovely way to start a Friday morning. Thank you for sharing it.”

“I also tried that. Wasn’t near as successful as this little (girl),” added one.

One commented: “And THIS is how they learn–years of paid-for lessons won’t get this kid as far as he’ll get doing just this, as he responds to his joy.”

According to the Galway Dance Project, O’Sullivan is considered by many to be a master of Irish dance.

“Her dancing has been described as a breath of fresh air and an experience to be relished. Musicians are impressed with her impeccable timing, her intuitive, innovative style and her skill for dancing to each note that is played. Audiences delight in her charismatic stage presence, her obvious joy and passion for her art form and her ability to capture the heart and soul of the tune with her freestyle footwork and fluid upper body movement,” the website says.

Irish dancing is believed to have arrived when the Gaels arrived in Ireland thousands of years ago. As noted by YourIrish.com, they brought “their own customs” and “their very own form of dancing.”

It is “believed these Celts used dancing as part of their religious rituals, but it’s unknown how much of this is actually true. We do know that the Celts did have a major influenced over today’s Irish dancing with their Celtic designs,” the site says.
