A bold dance routine by a 14-year-old Utah girl is grabbing online attention, and causing at least one police officer to reach for a tissue.This dance is dedicated to my uncle, and to ALL the men and women in blue who strap on their duty belt, secure their bullet proof vests, and put their lives on the line each day to keep us safe.
May you all return home safe. Keep walking the thin blue line.At first it may be confusing why this one girl at this dance performance has a cop standing with her on stage, but once she starts dancing you’ll understand.
You see, instead of choreographing her performance to the music, Tylar Olsen chose a spoken word. She dedicated her dance to her uncle who is a Police officer and all the policemen and women out there putting their lives on the line. The narrative is so powerful I can’t imagine anyone not liking this and the end is adorable enough to make your heart melt.
Tylar exits the stage by running to the corner and jumping into her uncle’s arms. Her mom describes the dance as emotional, and bold.”I couldn’t have done that when I was fourteen,” Andrea Olsen said. “I wasn’t brave enough. She took something that is controversial and performed a dance to it and knew it could be loved or hated, praised or ridiculed, and she did it anyway.”
