Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
