It was the big dance recital. All the parents were watching as a group of 4-year-olds walked out onstage escorted by an older ballerina. However, it was really one 4-year-old boy, Fred Gapuzan, who stole the show. Fred could not handle the spotlight one bit. Not even with his twin brother, George, sharing the stage with him. As the other dancers performed their routine, Fred stood onstage frozen. He used his adorable sailor hat and shirt as bit of an “invisibility cloak.”

“I had a hilarious, I-don’t-believe-he-did-that kind of feeling,” Fred’s dad, Jay, told Inside Edition. “This was their first dance recital. They were onstage, and everybody was looking at them. We were just enjoying it!”

Later on, when Mommy asked what was going through Fred’s head, the boy replied, “That school was scary!” We having a feeling George is going to be the more outgoing twin of the duo, but clearly that doesn’t mean Fred doesn’t have his own special way of stealing the show. Sometimes you’ve just got to do things your own way!
