Leah Still Challenges Riley Curry to Cutest Dance-Off Ever

07/27/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Riley Curry showed off her Whip and Nae Nae moves in honor of her 3rd birthday on July 19, but it looks like she’s got some cute competition.

Leah Still, the 5-year-old daughter of NFL lineman Devon Still, challenged Riley to a dance-off via her dad’s Instagram Sunday night.

“Riley, I saw your video, you think you can Whip better than me?” Leah says before busting out her own adorable moves to Silentó‘s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).”

Still tagged Riley’s dad, Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry, in the caption to make the challenge even more official.

Whatever happens next, we know it’ll be a friendly match. Still included the hashtag, “#SheLoveSeeingRileyOnTV.”

Leah is currently battling stage 4 neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer that mostly affects children under 5, and recently received the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPY Awards.

“In the five years I’ve been with you, you’ve taught me more about life than I could ever do and I love you,” the Cincinnati Bengals star said while accepting the award on behalf of his daughter.

Naomi- It’s always nice when grown adults call three and five-year-old children names, isn’t it?!😉

How awful that people feel the need to turn a sweet and innocent dance from a toddler into a competition. Let “Riley” be Riley. She’s her own person and doesn’t need to compare anything she does to anyone else. This is her thing.

BTW, I think both girls are adorable, and I hope Leah’s remission sticks and she beats that cancer!

Cutest little dance off “competition” ever! I’m so happy Leah is feeling strong enough to do something like this and I am sure both sets of parents are encouraging this friendly little rivalry. You go girls!

It’s a shame that the most petty and ugly things about this are the comments being posted, especially on this board. I would expect better of something run by People.

Jay, it is like that ALL the time. It is beyond sad. Children have been insulted based on their looks and how much they weigh. Children have been called obese. Adults have been as well.

I will share a little story. Someone I know had a post created about her a few weeks ago on Facebook. She was called many names based on her appearances and some secrets about her were revealed. People were horrible. Well, she committed suicide that night. She leaves behind a daughter. It disgusted me before, then and now everyone time I read “bully like” comments. When people discussed her suicide after the fact and said the comments were a contributing factor, some people said she should have sucked it up and been stronger. Disgusting. Not everyone can be. So people should be nicer with their words and realize we don’t know what people are going through, so be kind and not hateful.
