In this heartwarming and hilarious TikTok video, a Philadelphia teacher takes on a fun challenge with her 8-year-old student: a dance-off.

Regina Laurie, a second-grade teacher at Deep Roots Charter School in Philadelphia, recently shared with WPVI that she had a desire to demonstrate to her students that she was not too old to dance.

“It all began as a way to teach Ahmad a valuable lesson,” Regina revealed. “He would constantly tease me about my gray hair, calling me old. That’s when I made up my mind and said to myself, ‘I’m going to challenge this boy to a dance-off. I’ll show him my incredible dancing skills without him even realizing it!'”
