5-Year-Old Dances Up A Storm At Preschool Graduation While Holding Her Diploma

That's how you celebrate, girl.

We've heard some heartwarming stories about graduations recently. One viral story featured a single mom defying the odds and graduating Harvard Law School at 24 years old. Another sweet story involved a student inviting her sixth grade teacher to her Harvard graduation 21 years after she requested an invitation.

The latest story involves a young graduate celebrating her preschool graduation. Five-year-old Aubrey Toby is standing on stage with her classmates in her cap and gown with her diploma in hand. 


When Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" comes on over the speakers, she starts dancing her heart out.

Aubrey's uncle, Merle Murrain, captured the adorable moment on video and shared it on Instagram. In the video, the little girl from Durham, NC, is shaking, strutting, moving her diploma and giving some adorable sass.

She then walks across the stage and twirls before leaving.

Her uncle captioned the post, "Her future is going to be amazing! Class of 2018. Pre-K Graduation. Aubrey Christina Toby #waitforit"

People couldn't agree more. The video was posted on June 5 and it has already been viewed over 20,000 times.

Charlyne Thomas, Aubrey's preschool teacher, told ABC11 that she has watched the little girl blossom throughout the school year. "She's just developed. Developed being in the classroom, intermingling with her friends, and just learning and developed," she explained. "She's just sprouted, like a butterfly."

Aubrey's father Malcolm Toby adds that she has always had a little star quality. "Even as a baby, she loved to move to music," ABC News reported that he said to "Good Morning America." "But the older she got, Aubrey seemed to really enjoy when the spotlight was on her.

ABC11 reports Aubrey is excited to be going into Kindergarten and has hopes of becoming a doctor.
