She is a million times cooler than I will ever be like that but old age, lack of talent and fear of neck injuries holds me back!

When people talk about style, this is what they're talking about.

I suspect that this is not the last that we will see of her.

Sorta weird that she never smiles or looks happy about the whole thing.

I think that's her 'I'm cool and so laid back" face.

Talk about balance and coordination at 6!

There doesn't seem to be much concrete information about the music producers, but one thread says that Jungle is Jai Paul and James Blake. How does that happen without more peope knowing, or perhaps it's just a rumor?

she cracks a microscopic smile at the very end, when she's posing on her bed with the album.

That was great, but it made me flash back to San Francisco, 1981. We went to an all-night dance club and hooked up with a fun group who happily shared their killer dope. At that time, I had never smoked weed at all.

So we were dancing en masse, and I let myself go, feeling the music, extending my arms like a spirit in the wind.

Unfortunately for me, I happened to open my eyes right at the moment these guys were exchanging eye-rolling looks that made me realize I wasn't being as cool as I thought I was.

But what could I do? I was stoned out of my mind.

I do now leave the dancing to the professionals, whatever their age.

Whaaaaat?

Do you remember the last time you did choreographed rigorous exercise for that long? Do you remember the level of concentration necessary for that? Especially given how good her timing is? Especially given how a huge piece of advice about performance is often "don't emote?"

I would bet you a dollar there is no stage mother hounding her to practice her head spins. Make that ten dollars.

That said, this was amazing and 30 seconds in I was feeling like I have wasted my life. Then I started making mental notes, like "1:30 is the highlight" and then I was like, "nope, wait, it's what she puts on the pads....nope. NOPE. Headspin. That headspin. Whoah."

I also suspect that shooting the ending with her on the bed involved lots and lots of shots of her giggling.

This is like watching those early Messi football clips.

Wooooow, that kid is amazing! Loved her super concentration. She is clearly strong and skilled and loves what she does. Seconding bilabial that there is no whiff of the stage parent about that performance--looks like it is all her.

I just looked up "awesome" in the dictionary & found this kid's picture.

She looks like she's having a ball being all fierce and shit.
