Blue Ivy Carter proves to us again that you can’t beat good genes when it comes to busting a move center stage. In a painfully cute video of a recent ballet recital, Blue Ivy flaunts her dancing skills with a few extra flourishes that we can only assume came from the queen of pop herself.

The 5-year-old joined in with other talented youngsters in spot-on choreography to Earth, Wind and Fire’s “September” in a video that will make anyone’s day—whether they are Beyoncè and Jay Z fans or not.

Not one to blend in, Blue Ivy’s loose braids whip from side to side in the short video as she makes the dance her own. Her enviable onstage presence pulls all eyes right to her. (Her position at center stage doesn’t hurt.)

In no time the soon-to-be big sister will be able to pass her dancing skills on to her younger siblings. Does anyone else see the future promise of a family band?
