This Father-Son Duo’s Enchanting ‘Let It Go’ Performance Is Everything We Need Right Now

We’re all used to gender norms in society. Boys like blue; girls like pink. Boys like sports; girls like dolls. However, this incredible dad wanted to prove to his son that masculine stereotypes didn’t matter. And how did he do it? Through an awesome rendition of the hit song “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen – costumes included!

Crushing Toxic Masculinity

Too often, it seems that young boys and girls are forced to fit the stereotype of their gender. Little boys, especially, are discouraged from liking girly toys or wearing clothes that aren’t masculine. However, many parents in the 21st century shattering strict gender stereotyping at home. This includes super-dad Ørjan Burøe, who taught everyone a lesson in parenting a confident boy.

Norwegian comedian Ørjan Burøe seemed to have two goals in life: making people laugh and supporting his family. He married blogger Marna Haugen, and they soon became proud, loving parents. And one of Burøe’s clear parenting plans was to ensure his gorgeous songs didn’t feel constant pressure to be masculine and tough.

Parenting Without Stereotypes

As Burøe raised his boys, he knew he didn’t want them to be concerned with society’s prejudices. “It’s important to teach children that you can do whatever you want to do,” he explained. “Soon enough you will find out who you are going to be in life.” But Burøe doesn’t just preach…he puts his intentions into motion. And his incredible Disney dance with his son lit up the Internet.

One of his sons, 4-year-old Dexter, views Princess Elsa from Frozen as “a superhero.” Rather than point him in the direction of boyish superhero movies, Burøe took a different, heartwarming approach. He searched for some Elsa-themed dresses online, tracked down a tiny tiara, and ordered the set of Disney gear. And when Haugen was off on an errand, Burøe and Dexter gave an amazing Frozen performance.

‘Embarrass Yourself And Let It Go’

Burøe and Dexter choreographed a precious dance to the classic “Let It Go.” They also performed it in absolutely beautiful Elsa costumes! Thankfully, Burøe recorded the entire, adorable routine for the world. The resulting video is both hilarious and heartwarming. Luckily, most of the online responses were equally as uplifting.

Many were grateful that Burøe chose to teach his son healthy masculinity. That was Burøe’s ultimate goal, along with teaching Dexter that it’s okay to let loose and have fun. “It’s important to embarrass yourself and let it go,” he shared. The duo’s dance didn’t just prove that gender stereotypes are pointless…it also showed that you can look incredible breaking them!
