Tiny Ballerina Follows Mommy Onstage Only To Steal Show Mesmerizing Audience With Her Feet

There is an old adage that says about the fruit not falling far from the tree, which means that whatever characteristics there is in a parent will likely be found on their children. This is especially true when talking about talents within a family being evident from one generation to the next.
During the Season 9 premiere of So You Think You Can Dance, one mother who is extremely passionate about dancing, wowed everyone with her exceptional moves and talent. The judges could not help but be amazed by her absolutely remarkable skills. What the audience and the judges did not know, though, is that the flair and passion for dancing is something that runs in this young mother's family.
Bree Hafen, a 29-year-old Mom from Texas, was initially skeptical if she is ready to go back to dancing after devoting her life to her children, Luke, five years of age, and Stella, her two-year-old. Despite having second thoughts, her family supported her and went with her when she auditioned for the ninth season of So You Think You Can Dance.
When the judges asked her about what she does for a living, Bree proudly declared that she is a Mom and called out on her family in the audience. Her children were too adorable that executive producer and judge, Nigel Lythgoe, invited the youngsters to come and sit on his VIP chair!
The kids watched in the judges' seat as their Mom showed off her undeniable talent and gracefulness onstage until Nigel asked Luke to hand out his Mom's ticket to Las Vegas, where the succeeding rounds of the competition will be taking place. Moments later, little Stella came next to bring another ticket to her Mom.
Bree was obviously ecstatic that she will be going through to the next round. Nigel, after seeing such a lovely performance from Bree, could not help but ask why the young Mom on what took her so long to audition for the show.
She said that she used to have little confidence plus the fact that she was either pregnant or looking after her children during the show's earlier seasons. Thankfully, the wait is over because she has finally performed and shown the world that she can definitely dance.
Just when everyone thought that the audition was over, Nigel asked for a ballet music so that little Stella, who kept on saying it is her turn to dance, can show off her dance skills to her heart's content. The toddler is simply adorable everyone could not stop cheering for her!
