What’s holiday cheer without a big personality to boot?
With only Christmas tree sunglasses, a set of sleigh bells and a huge sense of humor, Marie Dallam from Oklahoma City stole the show at her choir’s holiday performance.
She was filmed at a Christmas performance with the OK City Chorus making over-the-top facial expressions, flexing her jazz hands and doing her craziest dance moves, all while her counterparts simply swayed to the beat.
“We didn’t really practice,” Dallam told InsideEdition.com. “One of the women organizing asked me to ring the jingle bells and be as goofy as possible.”
She explained that each of the choirs has its own personality, and because theirs tends to be on the funnier side, she decided to embrace the humor and let loose.
“In the moment, I was like, ‘Be as goofy as possible,’” she said.
By day, Dallam is an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Oklahoma.
“I think of myself as a serious person and shy in my normal life,” Dallam said. “Being a member of the OK City [Chorus], it allows me to indulge in my silly side.”
And even though she isn’t normally so goofy, Dallam said based on her positive feedback, she would do it again in a heartbeat.
“I am not embarrassed, but it is certainly different from my normal persona,” she joked.
