Now that we're done collectively freaking out about the questionable pointework in Ciara's new video (YEEPS), let's celebrate two dancers who are absolute masters of their craft, shall we?
Meet Bailey and Kenneth!
I'm talking about Bailey Sok and Kenneth San Jose. The California-based young'uns—Kenneth is 12, and Bailey is just 11—have kind of unbelievable hip-hop skills. But you don't have to take my word for it. Watch this new video of them taking down a routine to Meek Mill's "Monster," choreographed by Matt Steffanina:
Bailey and Kenneth are part of a growing group of littles—including Charlize Glass, Sean Lew, Soni Bringas, Gabe De Guzman and Taylor Hatala, to name just a few—who seem to be taking over the hip-hop industry, thanks in part to their appearances in videos like this one. They are insanely good, you guys. And they have some impressive grown-up mentors, too. Steffania, the genius responsible for the choreography above, is the same guy who brought Taylor Hatala viral fame, for example, and nearly all the kids listed above are members of Will "WilldaBeast" Adams' fantastic LilBeasts crew.
Let's just say we're definitely not complaining about the trend. More on that in our April issue!
