Other than being one of the nicest and funniest people on earth, Ellen DeGeneres also happens to have a knack for spotting talented dancers. Thanks to the comedian's dance obsession, world-class dancers like Tiler Peck, Lex Ishimoto, and Travis Wall have performed on her hit talk show "Ellen," with dance all-star tWitch retaining a permanent role as the show's DJ.


With so many magnificent moves going down on DeGeneres' set, discovering young up-and-comers like this dancing trio of sisters should come as no surprise. Rosa, Yarah, and Norah wowed audiences with their impressive dance routine, delivering a performance that seemed far beyond Yarah and Norah's 12 years and Rosa's 10 years of age. The dance prodigies hail from the Netherlands and "have a desire to be artists who influence other people with their art," according to their YouTube channel.

The girls have over 27,000 followers on Instagram, where they post everything from dance battles to training videos, and even family footage of them teaching their baby sister how to groove. Check out these sensational sisters below. We have a feeling this won't be the last you see of them.

On August 20, pop goddess Lizzo tweeted, "Someone do a ballet routine to truth hurts pls," referring to the anthem that's been top on everyone's playlists this summer. Lizzo might not know it yet, but ballet dancers are not known for shying away from a challenge. In the past two days, the internet has exploded with responses, with dancers like Houston Ballet's Harper Watters and American Ballet Theatre's Erica Lall tagging the singer in submissions.

Below are a few of our favorites so far, but we're guessing that this is just the beginning. Ballet world, consider yourselves officially challenged! (Use #LizzoBalletChallenge so we know what you're up to.)
