Dancy Pants Ben*

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Oh my Gosh!!! i’m practically speechless, he is the grooviest little boy I’ve ever seen.

  2. Sara B

    This is one of my favorites states of small children: dancing with wild abandon and no censors. Thank for bringing such joy to my morning (filled with matzoh and potato kugel).
    Can I have a pair of these pants?!

  3. kristine

    So cute! That boy’s got rhythm!

  4. Megan

    That’s the way to start off a week. Thank you! I can’t stop smiling! My favorite part is when he breaks it down at 00:50. That kid is something special!

  5. Malia

    Awwww, I love Ben! I hope he continues to dance like that as he gets older!

  6. Emma

    Awesome!! 🙂

  7. rachel

    There are really no words for how awesome this is.

  8. Shelley Noble

    Nothing better on earth than Dancy Pants Ben. Nothing. He’s got moves!

  9. spoiledonlychild

    I have seen a lot of kids dance, and that boy is a prodigy. Wow.

  10. Catherine

    that boy has MOVES!
    Max needs lessons from him!

    I work at a school (pre-K through 8th) so I see and work with children every day. Ours is a school that embraces play, and dance, (and creativity, the arts, lots of great stuff) as “core” (just as important as any academic areas). And I’m telling you that the way Ben moves is exceptional. Oh sure — cute as a button and joyful and fun. BUT, with a sense of body and movement and articulation that is seriously beyond his years. Here’s hoping he can pursue dance as a lifetime joy and never lose that sense of motion through space — he has a real gift.

  12. Retta

    This made my day! How awesome!

  13. nicole

  20. CLH

    I, too, thought “prodigy” while watching this with total delight. What a special and unusual gift. One can’t help but hope he’ll always experience himself and music with that kind of engaged passion! Rock on, and on, Ben.

  21. tricia

  39. Carole

    Hi Andrea ~ I just showed this video to my kids – Adam (5) and Norah (3) – and it was demanded about another five times in addition to repeats of all Ben’s videos on vimeo! Thanks for sharing – very fun!

    I think that to receive the home loans from creditors you ought to present a good reason. However, one time I have received a car loan, just because I wanted to buy a house.
