The moment these young dancers step onto the dance floor and do a twirl they had the audience’s attention.
Although only 15 years old at the time of this performance, Ryan Boz and Alexis Garrish confidently stride onto the dance floor to begin a routine that would end up winning them first place at the 2015 US Open Swing Dance Championships in the Young Adult Division.
Doing mostly their own choreography to “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, the two young dancers commanded the floor with their musicality and showmanship.
According to their dance teacher, Debbie Ramsey Boz, both Ryan and Alexis have danced from a young age and come from dance families “with both moms competing throughout the years in Swing Dance Competitions (including the US Open) against each other, now find themselves both on the same team.”
That’s clearly evident in their confidence and precise and elegant moves on the dance floor. Check out their amazing performance below and share it with your friends!
