Dogs are not just wonderful companions, they are also good as dance partners. Yes, you read that right, “dance partners.”

In fact, this story doesn’t just feature a random dog that’s jiving on to a certain beat – it is a ballet dance routine!

This little furry dancer and her owner, Karin Bauman wowed everyone watching when their duo performed a routine in one of the most popular ballets of all time, ‘Swan Lake.’

It was for what seemed to be a special show featuring dogs that was held in Germany last year. The two didn’t disappoint and soon you’ll know why.

Wondering how a dog could possibly nail such a difficult routine? This video of their performance will surely prove all the doubters wrong.

Joya started off with some dog agility routine while her human mama Karin was cueing each of the little dancer’s movements.

The routine suddenly went one notch higher when the dog started prancing her little paws sideways. This tiny doggo sure knows how to entertain people and she’s doing it flawlessly!

Never miss a beat!

In dancing, timing is everything and Joya knows exactly what she was doing during their routine.

With the help of Bauman, the dog was able to perform well along with the music. It’s actually safe to say that she was one with the music because she didn’t miss a beat – not even once.

To be this good during a live performance, this dancing chihuahua must’ve undergone countless practices. If you aren’t entertained yet, then brace yourself for what’s about to happen next.

If you’ve noticed, Joya’s tail was wagging almost non-stop during the entire routine, it simply shows how happy she was while performing in front of people.

The dog’s balance and posture were both superb, in fact, she also appeared to be doing some dog agility training drills.

Hops, twirls, prances and looks at the audience.

Talking about showmanship, Joya definitely has it. It looks like she’s been doing live performances for quite some time already.

However, we’ve noticed the sweet little dancer was missing something – a tutu! It could’ve been a lot better if she was wearing one, wouldn’t you agree?

When they were almost on the last part of their routine, Joya began blazing all over the place like there was no tomorrow.

Although Joya and Bauman were performing in a grassy area, they still managed to give everyone a theatrical vibe because of their impeccably good routine.

Let’s not take it away from Karin for being not just a great dog owner but also an amazing ballet teacher.

Actually, just a few months ago, they did the same routine during the Crufts’ Heelwork To Music competition.

Aside from the crowd, they were also able to amaze tens to hundreds of thousands of other people online.

One YouTube user wrote a heartfelt comment that best describes Joya and Karin’s overall performance: “Rarely am I so sorely stirred to such emotion… Well done, little friend. You have wakened this dormant heart and quieted the tempestuous melancholy of the mind. A truly haunting tragedy poised with such beauty and grace like no other. Harken, dear reader; for the master of tippy taps may yet come knocking on the door to your soul next. Will you answer the call?”

Watch the video below to see their amazing performance.
