Dance Mom dancers are no stranger to the pressure and fame that come with the spotlight.
But one preteen reality star from the hit Lifetime series decided to take a very different stage right on the street and shared an Instagram video of herself busting some moves in a Las Vegas strip dance circle, leaving street performers and passersby in awe.
12-year-old dancer Maesi Caes had just wrapped up a performance in Las Vegas with the Abby Lee Dance Company troupe at the Sheer Talent competition when she saw a group of dancers on the street and jumped right into the middle for a dance battle, still wearing her girly performance costume.
The Los Angeles based dancer stood stopped a street performers dance battle in the middle of a busy Las Vegas strip on a summer evening to get her own dig in the ring.
The video starts with her standing in the middle of the high-anticipation circle, waiting for the beat to drop donning a frilly white frock, white sneakers, and a ballerina tight bun.
Maesi left the audience shocked when Migos’ hit Bad and Boujee suddenly blared from the speakers and she instinctively dived into a freestyle dance routine, kicking off, quite literally, with a powerful jump.
She moved quickly and cleanly through the music, even throwing in a milly rock and side to side grooves.
At first she kept to herself but as the music progressed and the crowd grew larger and louder she began to dance about the space, taking in all the energy for herself.
But she saved the best for last, when the chorus came around she hit the beats on the famed chorus words ‘rain drop, drop top’ with sharp elbow and knee movements.
