Tiny ballerinas steal the spotlight when they get into scuffle on stage
Their adorable performance didn't go quite as planned.

Raegan and Freya got into a little scuffle in front of everyone and it was not over a piece of land or a kingdom. Names like that will have people thinking Game Of Thrones or something.

They are actually two little girls who had dreams of becoming star ballerinas someday. It’s a good thing mom and dad thought of starting them young then.

The show must always go on.

Now, this recital happened back in 2012 so these two girls are much older and bigger now. But during that day when they were to dance in their recital, something unexpected happened.

One snapped while the other wasn’t having that attitude thrown at her.

It’s not exactly clear what happened. The girls are spread out on stage, dancing their little hearts out to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, and though not exactly in sync, still adorable nonetheless.

Then the confrontation happens.

Raegan and Freya begin to eye each other which eventually goes to a toe to toe confrontation. After all, this is ballet so those are pretty strong toes.

The taller girl pokes at the face of her adversary, so that means a few mean words were exchanged. Then they begin gently shoving each other back and forth, and at this point, the crowd is chuckling in their seats.

When it comes to little kids and performances, they never seem to go as planned, do they?

A viewer shared:

“Funny as heck. It looks like they had different ages in one performance. The older girl was frustrated cuz the little ones didn’t care! I remember seeing my niece in her recital 30 years ago. Same thing. People laughing, including me. Kids are so fun on stage.”

You have to admire the other dancers who still continued the performance considering the other two behind them were just about ready to grapple.

But what exactly did they have to fight about?

Other viewers are speculating that the taller girl got frustrated with the little one since she wasn’t exactly following the steps. Not to mention she left her place and began to walk back and forth.

“Probably the taller one asked the shorter one to go back to her place and she refused and then poking thing happened..” says another viewer.

And with ballet, those aspects are very important.

The parents are loving it, and eventually, the teachers make their way up on stage to separate the two little fighters. All this while the others kept on dancing.

This is Raegan vs. Freya for the undisputed ballet recital championship!

These sweet girls just got frustrated. One aimed for a perfect recital, the other was a free spirit who wanted to dance her way.

Their moms and dads were laughing but surely there was some scolding that happened in the car on the way home. But hey, these girls know how to stand up for themselves so that’s a good thing.

Watch the performance for yourself in the video below!
