Along with his mom, he has been spotted at the ballet and at concerts where his dad has been performing. According to a 2019 interview with The New York Times, Hamrick gushed about her son’s love of dance.
“Not yet, as I don’t have him enrolled in any courses. He’s a ukulele player and composer. He inherited the trait. Definitely. I hope he’ll take the bait and go for it. To make some noise with his feet, like a little boy might? As a matter of fact, he can’t get enough of those music lessons.”
