Toddler steals the show at Alberta Powwow

A two year old named Albert Apsassin is a self taught dancer! During a celebration of Indigenous People's, young Albert began to dance with the adult category, keeping in rhythm with the beat and even dancing appropriately at various parts of the song. He was an instant internet sensation! Click the link below to read about his skills and to watch a video of an interview with his mother.

“Everyone was like, ‘Aw, he’s so cute,’ and he kind of stole the show because he was dancing with all of us adults,” Desjarlais gushed to CTV Edmonton on Monday.

Desjarlais said her son learned to dance by watching YouTube videos of powwow dancers and attending Indigenous events with his family.

“He listens to the songs very well,” she said. “He’s aware of what you are supposed to do in certain parts of the song. He’s basically self-taught.”
