This mom of three knows a thing or two about school dances. Jennifer Garner took a break from her hectic acting schedule to surprise a group of schoolgirls at their mother-daughter dance Saturday.

While shooting for her upcoming film The Tribes of Palos Verdes at the Friendly Hills Country Club, the female students of Grazide Elementary School in Hacienda Heights, California were busy boogieing the evening away alongside their moms. When she could finally steal a moment away from her work, the actress visited the little ladies and thanked them for their good behaviour.
“Thank you all for being so patient because I know movies can be a hassle to have shooting around you,” she said in front of the excited group. It doesn’t seem like any of the girls were too upset about Garner crashing the party. She was met with cheers and applause as she spoke before the crowd.

Garner is no stranger to interacting with little girls – her daughters Violet and Seraphina are both elementary school age as well. Along with son Samuel, the star is very protective of her trio of kids and is hesitant to expose them to too much of the spotlight. “They have school tomorrow and they’re doing homework and practising piano and going to bed,” she said at the red carpet premiere of her latest film, Miracles from Heaven.
