A 5:30am Dance Party: When Kids Wake Up With a Burst of Energy

We’ve all had those mornings when we wake up feeling groggy, wishing we could hit the snooze button and stay in bed a little longer. But there are some early risers, particularly young children, who seem to have endless energy and enthusiasm at the crack of dawn.

“5:30am wake up call from my darling son - this bedroom camera captures some of the funniest things 🤣”

In a video shared by Narise Kira, a young boy wakes up at 5:30am and, instead of going back to sleep or quietly playing with toys, he decides to start his day with a full-on dance party. The video shows the adorable child requesting Taron Egerton’s rendition of Elton John’s classic hit, “I’m Still Standing” from a voice-activated speaker, which then fills the room with the catchy tune.
