As #InternationalDanceDay trends on twitter, Little Muhammad Raza from the mountainous valley of Gilgit Baltistan in Passu, Pakistan, shows the world that despite all gloom you can still rise and dance happily! And it seems like WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus wholeheartedly agrees.
A video has gone viral in which the little boy dressed to bear the cold weather, flashes an unmistakable happy grin as he breaks down some moves in front of the camera.
Surrounded with snow, cheeks red from the cold, Muhammad never stops dancing. The extreme temperature is doing nothing to damper his happy personality.

The kid or his aunt would have never thought that an innocent video like this would take the social media world by storm. The video, therefore, became more special not because of Hamza’s infectious smile, but because of the conditions in which he is dancing.
The cold, the snow beneath his feet, the ferocious winds are doing little to damper his state of pure joy as he dances free of any care in the world. This little boy shows us how there is light at the end of every tunnel. how we can find happiness in even the darkest moments. Feeling depressed by the current situation? Just let it go, dance it out!
