This Dancing Kid At A High School Basketball Game Is My New Spirit Animal
February 10 / Rick Chandler / SportsGrid
So you formerly knew Spruce Creek High School in Port Orange, FL, as the home of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. But now it's better known as the place where Seth Vangeldren first busted out his dance moves.
Vangeldren, who is only 10, "got the crowd thumpin'" (his own words) during warmups of a Spruce High varsity basketball game last week. He quickly earned his own cheering section made up mostly of high school girls. But soon the entire gym was getting into it, including players.
The odd thing was that it was literally Seth's public dancing debut. News6-Orlando:
"He goes in his room and he won't come out until he's perfected it, and then he comes out and shows us, but he won't do it outside the house," his mother, Michele Slater, said.
His mother had just left the game, leaving Seth with his older sister.
"My daughter called me up and said, 'You're never going to believe what happened,' Slater said. "She's like, 'Seth got up and danced. The basketball players stopped, everybody stopped.' I cried like three times. I was like, 'What?' I said, 'What made you do it?' He said, 'It was your favorite song and I was thinking of you.' I missed it!"
Here are two longer versions, posted by Seth himself.
