This adorable three-year-old Irish dancer at her first feis will melt your heart.

A tiny Irish shows off some serious step-dancing moves and a great deal of charm in a video posted to the Fleadh Cheoil Facebook page in 2016.

Dressed to the nines, the girl is brought out onto the dance floor and, at first, stands there a bit hesitantly.

Then she starts dancing like a little pro, impressing the audience, which cheers and claps along to the music.  With a huge smile on her face, she looks like she’s having the time of her life.

The video has amassed over 2.2 million views. We can totally see why! What a cutie.
