Storm also posted and shared her enthusiasm for the weekend event. "He's just the absolute sweetest. Saturday can't come fast enough," she wrote.

For those who follow the pair on social media, you'll know that Sayeed and Storm's friendship goes way back.

Whether posing for fun photos together in matching clothes to supporting each other's projects, it appears the duo has a special bond off camera.

"Went to see the beautiful @stormreid in her new movie, @wrinkleintime which comes out March 9th," Sayeed shared in a recent post. "She was absolutely amazing CONGRATULATIONS."

And this isn't the first time the pair has enjoyed a dance together. Back in November 2017, Storm and Sayeed enjoyed a school event. And yes, we loved Storm's outfit that included Vans sneakers.  

"HOCO 2k17 was pretty amazing with her," Sayeed shared on Instagram.

Have fun you two!
