These Budding Ballroom Stars Will Make Your Day

We’re all about dance prodigies this week. On Tuesday, it was a 6-year-old breakdancing champ. Today? Pre-adolescent ballroom masters.

Meet Anika Baker, 10, and Carter Williams, 11, two very talented youngsters who have been chosen to represent the United States in the junior division of the elite Blackpool ballroom competition, held annually in Blackpool, England. (You know—the competition Derek and Julianne Hough are making a TV show about.)

Not only are Carter and Anika the cutest, they also have serious moves (that hip action!) and serious style (those anklet socks!). What the dynamic duo doesn’t have is the funds to make it to Blackpool for the competition. If you’re a ballroom fan who’d like to donate to their cause, you can do so through their Facebook page.

Good luck, Anika and Carter!
