Dante_2

What impresses me more is that he memorized the whole choreography


ljubaay

And he probably cant even count :O


hugehangingballs

You underestimate asian parents. This kid probably has 2 degrees already.


joopskayak

That kid is going places.


NoIndust

I bet his father or mother is a dancer too. Because the dance moves is running through his veins


TheOneTrueChuck

Yeah, I have to assume that either one of his parents is involved with this dance group, or an older sibling is.


dwindleexpect

That kid future starts Now.


leefera

No hes not. He's mostly just dancing on one spot.


Hellfireboy

And now the red spot from me slapping my forehead after reading that is going to last all day. Thanks for that.


IronTarkus91

Yeah, back to college until he has another degree.


soline

Unless it’s a doctor, he’s a failure.


Kelly86Liz27

I mean really is that comment even necessary 🤷🏽‍♀️


Deenyc43

That's DR. kid


surajvj

That is to start with. When I was 30, I had a folder full of certificates. Most of half year, one year courses gets obsolete in few years. Only the proper masters degree from good universities stay for good. Education is a big business here in asia.


Snoo-26413

Fuck everything else I said. Watch this from John Oliver. https://youtu.be/29lXsOYBaow You don't even have to be like me and actively discuss with people. I just ask that you stop reinforcing stereotypes.


IronTarkus91

I mean, it is kinda true that asian parents are super strict about education. I had a buddy in school that got grounded for getting 87% on a test.


Snoo-26413

Yeah one buddy, and you don't have any Euro-American buddies with similarly strict parents?


IronTarkus91

Nah it wasn't just "one buddy" that was just an example. My friendship group has always been very diverse in terms of races. Literally every asian kid I knew growing up would complain about their parents pushing them too hard, not letting them come and do things unless they had super high marks at school etc. Even the Asian kids themselves all meme about it because it is such a typical part of many, many kids lives growing up in an Asian household.


Snoo-26413

Asian household, so I am assuming this is first generation families? And first generation families have what, one opportunity to make it in the US or they fail? If their kid doesn't make it, it will be minimal wage job, no generational wealth, no health insurance, and possibly homelessness? This being said, just Asians? Or is it all immigrant families that work to try to make it in life? And you know what, all that being said, maybe Asian ethnic immigrants work really hard sure. And it's like that for 3rd, 4th, 5th gen Asian Americans too? There is always a reason why. Why do Asian ethnic families push their kids so hard, sure. And you don't think upper middle to upper class Euro Americans push their kids just as hard if not more?


IronTarkus91

You are acting like it is a bad thing dude. My most successful friends from growing up are my two best mates and both are Asian. Its just a cultural thing. And no, from my experience in the UK, white British families don't push their kids anywhere near as hard.


wearyomask

What do you mean by Asian culture? There are a number of different Asian countries and they do not all share the same culture. A lot of people from these countries, in my own experience, do not like to be lumped together under the umbrella of Asian, and also don't like to be mistaken for being from a country they aren't from. There are some really complicated relationships between countries and it can be a sensitive area for some people. You also have to remember that in the UK, a white British family will have privileges that immigrants do not, so there isn't the same pressure on them that there may be on children from an immigrant family.


Snoo-26413

Let me ask you. Do you not think upper middle or upper class Europeans / Euro-Americans do the same thing? This isn't exclusively Asian thing, and many Asian families aren't even like this, but there is a stereotype it is. But there isn't a stereotype for wealthy Europeans? That's what's messed up


gwaydms

Some of the pressure on the children to do well comes from peer pressure within the group of *parents*. I'd hear some of the Indian moms at our kids' school talking about the grades their kids had and where they were in the class. Also, most of the couples had at least one doctor, so they very much wanted the same for their children (both boys and girls).


IronTarkus91

I totally agree with this.


jm31828

My wife is Asian (Chinese), moved here from China 15 years ago. She will even say that the "stereotype" of Asian (especially Chinese from her experience) parents are by and large strict on education, push their kids very hard to do well in school. This is not just an opinion from an outsider, or a bad stereotype- it is the truth, from someone who grew up in China and can speak for how things are there, and in turn, how things are for many of those who have since moved here to the west.


Snoo-26413

So let me ask you this question. Why are the Chinese people so heavily focused on their children's education? I'm not talking about Asian Americans, talking Asians in Asia. Have you given this much thought?


jm31828

It seems pretty obvious- they want their kids to achieve what is best in life as far as success, comfort, money, etc- and that is best achieved through a very good education. They believe doing the absolute best in K-high school sets the student up then to get into the best college to study whatever it is that would be best for the child in achieving that success. Education= a more successful life for the most part Not my opinion, but this is how my wife has described it from her experience growing up there, and from what was commonly heard really from all parents back there.


Snoo-26413

Yes, but it's the culture that was grown from a countries torn from war & was catching up to the wealthier western countries that gained their wealth from generations of (sorry no better way to put it) exploiting and stealing resources from their colonies around the world. This underlying disparity between the countries wealth for the past 300 years might have to do with the culture of studying hard to get ahead.


whydub103

that's not reinforcing a stereotype, that's making a joke. reinforcing a stereotype would be if the kid actually already had 2 degrees. asian person here, i think it's hilarious. if you aren't asian you should probably keep your mouth shut about what offends me or what doesn't.


Snoo-26413

You remind me of Kanye West when he said "slavery was a choice" to African Americans. There are explicit racists who threaten to harm me. There are ignorant racists who say stupid shit. And then there are people like you, who are willfully ignorant and blind. You god damn weak link. Who are you? You're an Asian? What the fuck does that even mean? Are you Asian or Asian American? Did you grow up in LA where you never faced real systematic racism because everyone around you were also Asian American? Or did you grow up in Asia. Whatever the case, don't worry about it. I'm not being "offended" for you, but you need to shut the fuck up and not try to undermine my pursuit of liberty, happiness and freedom of being humanized. You don't want to be humanized you fucking weak link? Good for you, then get the fuck out of the conversation. People are either fighting for representation and humanization or are against it. You already explained where you stand. Good for you, you live your own life. Let me live mine without worrying about being stabbed for being an Asian ethnic. What does your statement add to the conversation? What are you trying to achieve?


whydub103

i was born in asia and grew up in rural wisconsin. think i didn't experience any racism in a predominantly white area? >And then there are people like you, who are willfully ignorant and blind. nope. there are bigger issues facing the asian community. this isn't one of them. neither is the "rise" in anti asian crime. there is no rise, just the media is starting to pretend to care about asians and treat them as minorities again. if i were to go on a politically charged race based rant though i would say something to the likes of: this is how you white people do it. you think you're better than everyone and therefore must stand up for us. thank you so much white knight. thank you for thinking we are down trodden and incapable of speaking for ourselves and taking the high road and assuming we are offended by a harmless joke. thank you so much. i've been so oppressed i can't do that for myself. just like all through history where you've gone and helped elevate all the other civilizations and cultures around the world and imposed the white, better culture on them, thank you soooooo much.


Boston_Brawler_

While I understand this is meant to be tongue-in-cheek and a light hearted joke... it's a racial stereo-type we should try to avoid using.


Snoo-26413

God damn it dude... Why the fuck do you have to dehumanize Asian ethnics like that. You don't think Euro American parents encourage their kids to be active? Haven't you heard of soccer moms? Child star moms?


biggiepants

John Oliver did a good segment [on this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29lXsOYBaow). The stereotype *is* harmful. Stereotypes are harmful, because people are individuals. [This](https://youtu.be/29lXsOYBaow?t=1500) is a good clip.


hugehangingballs

Oh relax, Richard.


Snoo-26413

You: "degrade and dehumanize my existence" Me: "get offended" You: "chill out dude, it's just a joke" I'm sure your joke is funny and all of your buddies at the Klan meetings laugh their asses off. My safety has been threatened for my ethnicity, but it's micro-racisms like yours that poisons and suffocates me from inside out.


hugehangingballs

I better let my Korean son know about my racism. 😂😂


Snoo-26413

Korean son? What defines a "Korean" son? Does he speak native level Korean? Does he have Korean culture? Does he have Korean grandparents to practice Korean traditions? Does he have Korean mannerisms? Does he understand Korean modern slang? Does he understand the implicit Korean social structures? If he doesn't have any of the above, is he Korean? Or instead is he Korean/Asian Ethnic American, because he would be as Asian as Euro Americans are European.


hugehangingballs

As in.... Literally born in South Korea to Korean parents. You need to relax.

Also working on a paper to finally validate String Theory.


lateralus9679

He's got a PhD and master's indeed !


AndrewIsMyDog

His sibling is probably part of the group and he's seen it a million times.


abdulsamadz

Lil homie here prolly doesn't know what left or right is, but has better memory than me to memorize all the dance moves


Viperbunny

And his timing is great!


ElectricalBunny3

He's following a child's basic instinct of copying everything. It's definitely not his first time doing the dance, either. You can teach a child a lot this way, just by letting them copy you and having them repeat it until they get it right.


[deleted]

[удалено]


grpagrati

I bet his mom taught him that to tire him out and keep him quiet


Bert_Bro

Little did she know this builds up his stamina and the chaos will eventually be eternal


CzarMedium

OMG he almost got the beat!


[deleted]

beat it! beat it! that kid was the reincarnation of MJ.


ribsies

I go through this dilemma with my dog. Have to take him for long walks to make him tired...it is only making him stronger...


endertribe

Whatever works works


12altoids34

What do you mean 'future' he's doing it now


Imaginary-Ad-1164

His one of internet sensation now. Proud of you kid!


cupidwaste

That kid is tuned to the rhythm of the music on his dance moves. Adorable!


Teflon_Skipper

The future is now, old man


12altoids34

Now ? But I'm not even dressed yet !


djsear01

I am a pediatric physical therapist who works with 9 and 10 year olds who can't skip or do jumping jacks despite really good effort. Sometimes I see things like this and it just blows my mind. We are all so very different in our abilities and skill sets, it is so damn cool to me. This kid is a beast!


SuperSimpleName

🙋🏻‍♀️ my eldest son couldn't skip or do jumping jacks either. He's almost 12 and just started skipping a little but still cannot do jumping jacks. I never knew why though, he just couldn't


This_Principle6115

Can he ride a bike? Not comparing however My 10 year old is still with trainers. Scooters, no problem. Just can’t get the bike concept. Skipping? Not even on the horizon. Yet he’s skipped a grade already. Not going to be an easy path for this one.


100LittleButterflies

Kid only just learned to walk like last week and he's already dancing like a pro.


Djeng726cgk

Nope, he not following- he got hiz own moves


TheDarthStomper

Kid's the lead, green shirts are his backup dancers...


sleekgreen

Cute and adorable!


Axmanns231

That age on that moves? I thinks it's Awesome.


heavyarmszero

Well duh, he cant become a doctor at 5 years old if he doesnt know how to walk!


Lucy_Lastic

Kid aside (and he's adorable) that actually looks really fun


BernieTheDachshund

This is great, the kid knows all the moves. Then I became mesmerized by watching the lady's ponytail.


Aliissa404

As I read that I immediately looked back up to the video and there was the pony tail in all its glory and I couldn’t stop watching it for a whole minute


ThreeLeafOG

y’all are silly


Mkbond007

Going back now to see for myself…..


MonteBurns

5 hours later, they're still watching the ponytail...


Mkbond007

Yeah, but which one?!!


Necorus

You SOMBITCH. couldn't just let us go on living without too being mesmerized by the ponytail of hypnosis.


[deleted]

SPEEEEEEEEEN


Candykinz

Damn you


BernieTheDachshund

I rewatched it 3 times for that.


Right-String

Same!!


1ndiana_Pwns

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one that kept getting distracted by the ponytail


Sea-Coconut5641

Definitely more coordinated than I have ever been!


Sea-Coconut5641

I mean seriously, he doesn’t even have to look at the others for the moves. I suspect they all look to him to see what comes next!


Kelly86Liz27

Exactly so maybe the one that made the doctor comment is a failure a failure at having COMMON SENSE


red_sky33

I didn't know I was going to envy the rhythm of a toddler today


WWIVPENGUIN

Probably the child or sibling to somebody in the group, and learned right along with them ever day when they practiced.


littledeebee1

This exactly! Kid has probably been dragged to practice every day for a couple months and just leaned it by being there!


littlesadsiren

Man he's going to be a blast at parties


jennthemermaid

I need to get in shape. All I could think of is wow that looks fun, but I'd probably have a fucking heart attack :D <3


koudos

Is this a exercise group at a park? Sometimes I wish they had stuff like this here. They don’t judge, you participate at your own pace and eventually you’ll be able to do that.


Its_Pine

It looks like China, where a lot of outdoor group exercise is regularly encouraged (partly as an after effect of early communist era mandatory morning exercises, iirc). But usually I just saw older people doing tai chi in the parks, not this.


Bigenderfluxx

This is more like a flash mob, as it is definitely choreographed and memorized by the group.


degotoga

No, that’s how these exercise groups work. They’ll learn a couple routines but it isn’t a dance lesson, it’s a workout


Charming_Sandwich_53

No doubt. I could either swing my ponytail, move my feet or move my arms, but it would take weeks of practice with each element before I could possibly do all three. And that would require an instructor, a tutor and hours of practice. I have absolutely no rythm. Lucky boy!


MikeProwla

Kid has more coordination at 3 than I have at 30


[deleted]

This kid goes to jazzercise A LOT with his mom.


aDingoStoleMyBaby

Is this the same dance from that Chinese high school principal who taught and performed daily with his school for exercise?


periodicsheep

it looks like it to me too!


HamsterTowel

Is [this](https://youtu.be/oOYkMQOUk3c) the same little chap?


Oliver-B-

Could be!


Prodromous

Is this China?


mooneyp1991

Most likely. It could be guangchangwu (广场舞) (Chinese square dancing)


angelazy

Lol thats like flowy middle aged/elderly woman dancing. Literally means park dance. This looks like some sort of simplified edm shuffle.


idontknowandimunsure

I've seen these groups a lot around the Beijing National Stadium - dance or tai chi or similar large sports groups, just out on the street going at it. Is that like a normal hobby in China, group-street-dancing?


angelazy

Yes. Lots of (usually old) people will go out and do group dance/stretching/tai chi in parks. Interesting cultural dynamic but tbh very annoying if they crank the music and you live nearby.


Rievin

What gets really annoying is rival karaoke crews in close proximity to each other. Wife's parents life close to a popular karaoke park area type thing, sometimes it's just a sea of noise. Old chinese songs blasted over shitty speakers while singers somehow produce even worse sounds vaguely related to it.


idontknowandimunsure

That's so cool, thanks for the context!


possumking333

They always crank the music. And there's four different groups all playing different music and one of them has like DMX samples in it. We cranked our music and they called the police. Lol.


AtomicSymphonic_2nd

Noise-cancelling headphones are your friend. Source: Am a Former Beijinger


Deenyc43

I wonder if it's done for exercise. It's pretty normal to see large groups of people Asian people doing Tai Chi in parks. EDIT: I just realized I have no idea how to spell exercise, i had to look it up. exersize, exorcise, exercize, exesice...


Forgotenzepazzword

I definitely saw a ton of women getting together in the afternoons in Cambodia for group dancing like this. Looked fun!


Oddcookie

It looks suspiciously like the Melbourne Shuffle


davidjytang

Yeah it has simplified Chinese on the back.


Rhueh

What I really like about this is that he's on the beat quite well. So many "cute dancing kid" videos have a kid gyrating around off the beat. I never find that impressive.


Naturallyjifted

Wow I can barely walk


fonefreek

Very funny, Xavier


sm217

Meanwhile I can either move my hands or my feet, never both at the same time


drakejones99

That is AWWsome.


satashaki

Stole the show!


neveronit65

For some reason the kid reminds me of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2


HappyfeetLives

He isn’t following them, they are following him!


FantasticWittyRetort

Forget the regular dance and fitness instructors. I want to take all my instruction from this little guy!


Manaze85

Great. One more person to remind me how I bad I am at dancing.


soline

The dancing baby grew up.


chadbelles101

That’s the dance he does before stealing your girl


Chrissie-cc

Awesome little guy 🥰


Future-Temperature44

hes better than all the other dancers, change my mind


Real-Dinosaur-Neil

His angle was off when they were going sideways. He didn’t spin correctly, if at all. He isn’t in the correct uniform. He’s not really spaced correctly either, but his legs are like half the size. You need higher expectations if you wanna raise child prodigies. You need to drive all the passion out of them! (Slight sarcasm in this comment) I am actually really amazed how close he gets! Did he just watch them over a period of days or is he a relation to one of the dancers?


Bierbart12

Kids learn fast, but not THAT fast. He probably watched someone practice daily for a month


imeantcake

Did not miss a step!


Unlucky_Classroom280

He's got the beat!❤


letsbuildweird

I hate this dance.


RavensShadow117

Why? No hate meant I'm just curious


letsbuildweird

I hate repeating actions. Dripping water, repeating body gestures and words drives me crazy. This dance is repetitive and it drives me crazy to call it a dance. A Dance follows the feeling of a song, this is just exercising.


NamasKnight

I always found large scale grid dancing to be creepy. Like if one person trips the whole hoard will start ripping the deviants limbs off then just start dancing again.


xcurly89

I don’t want to sound ignorant, but do most Chinese (?) people know this workout dance? It feels like the same dance in various videos.

I’m impressed. I have two left feet. Kudos to that kid memorizing and then executing this dance! It’s no easy feat and this was a long routine for a kid that long. Im guessing he kept going the whole time.
