- The sixth-grader was singing Mowgli’s song “I’m Good” with his classmates at Highlands Elementary School when he stole the show.
- Trevor Bolling’s theatrical dance moves and facial expressions were the hit of the ceremony.
A performance from the graduating class of an elementary school in Alabama was a hit, thanks to Trevor Bolling who totally stole the show.
The 12-year-old commanded all the attention with his eccentric dance moves.
Trevor performed Mowgli’s song “I’m Good” with his classmates during the graduation ceremony at Highlands Elementary School in Dothan early last month. The sixth-grader’s very theatrical dance moves and facial expressions were the hit of the ceremony.
Posted to Facebook on June 2, the clip shows Trevor acting out the lyrics, and dancing around to the song.
He even throws his arms up above his head in full abandon and swings his hips, then end with the robot dance move.
What’s more amusing is that some of his classmates are trying hard not to laugh and they were also not moving much.
Bollings’ teacher, Tara Singley, recorded the video and posted it to social media.
Tara told a local newspaper, the Dothan Eagle: “Some were embarrassed to be in front of people. One was shy while trying to sing and make their parents proud.
“Some were hiding behind a friend. One was doing exactly what their teacher told them to do.”
“Then, there was Trevor… the one that we all look back on our middle school days and wish we had been courageous enough to be.
“We all wish we had his confidence and joy during one of the most awkward years of our lives.”
His mother, Gemma Bolling, also added: “He’s just really silly, really goofy. But, I didn’t know he was going to do that… He just completely improvised that dance routine.”
The funny but adorable clip has since gone viral and been liked more than 200,000 times on Facebook and has been viewed more than 11 million times.
