This Dallas 11-Year-Old Is Already a Better Dancer Than You'll Ever Be

Categories: Dance


The children are indeed the future. Local preteen KJ Takahashi is competing in a video contest, Marquese Scott's Shut Up and Dance: Dance Among Dragons, in which he's currently ranked third.

This isn't a kid-specific contest. KJ's competitors are grown-ass adults, and he's closing in on the second- and first-place holders. Rankings are determined entirely by Youtube likes, so if you want to kick some support his way then be sure to give him a thumbs up.

Dance on, KJ. Dance on.

I'm embarrassed for him.

Can he dance? Yes. However, he is at Willow Bend Mall in Plano in front of a Santa exhibit. 


Street cred equals 0.

I agree with you, commenters. Since I've got magical editing powers over humble blog posts, I'm removing dubstep references from this piece. [Arsenio arm thing goes here.] Now, let's all kick back and celebrate the magic of this kid's dancing.

FYI this is called popping robotting and waving ..our generation invented it...FYI animation is waving in slow motion.* Note to Next generation ...Stop trying to rename our dance...there is no such thing as Dubstepping ..Dubstep is a British /Jamaican import of industrial club music. NOT A DANCE STYLE.

He's great and taught himself well from watching even greater performers on you tube videos.

By the way I know what I'm talking about as I was a first generation popper in the 1984 classic all breakdance and hip hop classic hit film Beat Street and have been popping longer than his parents have been alive.

Just FYI, that's not even Dubstep. It's a completely different genre call Drum & Bass or Jungle and that song is by Rudimental, a Drum & Bass band. Your "dubstepper" title and comments make you look like an idiot.

@Jamie_L. No editing powers in this world or the next could erase the memory of "dubstepper."

@monstruss@Jamie_L.Wow. I wish that's the stuff that haunted my memory, which I'm pretty sure is filled with much more ominous sins. Good for you! It means you're living a fairly wholesome life! Kudos!
