His classmates also stand up and start to dance along with him. He knows each and every step of the song.
Kids are the perfect example of how one should be carefree and enjoy themselves. In a video posted on Reddit by u/uchman365, a boy can be seen sitting with his classmates and clapping. Then all of a sudden, the song “Calm down” by Rema and Selena Gomez begins to play and he can not stop dancing. Meanwhile, his classmates also stand up and start to dance with him. He knows each and every step of the song and is sure the one who inspired others to shake a leg.
The video is captioned, “Kid goes off during school concert, busts out dance moves.” It has about 3.9k upvotes. Many on Reddit loved his energy and his moves. u/leading_initiative50 commented, "O that's so cool. Such a positive energy." u/cp;pr_around_me wrote, "The moment he realized it's THAT song, his eyes lit up." u/Za4iitsxx expressed, "This kid has got talent!

The original video was posted on Instagram by @zaidalbeiruti. It has more than 3 million views and it is captioned, "Do it big, do it right, and do it with style. Mother’s Day celebration." @8ro75x commented, "He couldn’t calm himself down 😂😂" @_canis_1006_ wrote, "Bro didn't care about the party...He came, he saw, he conquered!🔥"
In another video, a woman danced to the same song but for a different reason. She wanted to bring attention to the recent incident where 5 Iranian girls were detained for dancing to the song "Calm down" without hijab.
The video starts with a text overlay that reads, "5 Iranian girls were hunted down and detained for two days for dancing to this song in public." The elderly woman knows every move by heart and does it perfectly well. The text overlay then reads: "They were later forced by the government to apologize. They are courageous for doing something that we take for granted." She goes on to share that although she has the freedom to dance in public, her fears have been holding her back. The video concludes with the line, "I admire their bravery."
The video went viral with more than 41,000 upvotes. Many people on Reddit loved the woman's dance and appreciated her for doing it. u/vestayekta commented, "This Iranian girl thanks you for your kind and gracious heart." u/Epicurus402 wrote, "I admire this woman for stepping out to show her support. She obviously understands what is at stake in Iran, and how precious our freedoms are here at home."
u/jellyfishnumerous785 expressed, "She's braver and a much better dancer than me!!! Keep [dancing]." Cherry_bomb_127 commented, "As an Iranian girl, thank you. It's nice seeing people still worry about us. I can see that some people think this is stupid and for clout or something but even if it's for clout, at least more people know what happened and are now aware, it makes it so we aren't forgotten. Hoping for the day, we shall be able to dance in the street without fear. Happy Nowruz everyone, may the new year be full of happiness."
