Little Fred Gapuzan was joined onstage at a school in Marietta, Georgia, by three other dancers, including his twin brother, George. In an attempt to hide, Fred used his shirt and sailor hat as a disguise.

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

The other dancers tried to get Fred to stick to the routine, but he stayed hidden under his clothing, peeking out at times at the audience.

He said that his son later told his mom, "That school was scary!"

He said the boys, who take dance classes at The Georgia Ballet, had been practicing their routine over the last month, and were excited for the big event.

“It was a cute moment,” he said.
