From Tap-Dancing Penguin to Break-Dancing Boss

For today’s installment of young break-dancing prodigies with so much talent it freaks us out a little bit:

60378951Meet Mace Maya, a 10-year-old breaker who began dancing at the age of 5. As the story goes, his dad saw him tapping up a storm while watching the movie Happy Feet and said, “Hey, want to learn how to break-dance?” (Or something like that…)

It’s no surprise we have Ellen DeGeneres to thank for this discovery—he was a guest on her show this past Wednesday. During the pre-performance interview, Mace really worked the cuteness factor. Seriously, this kid is adorable. But don’t let that fool you—this kid’s moves are so not cute (in the best way possible). See for yourself!

Who knew tap-dancing penguins could inspire such hardcore breaking?
