This Dallas 11-Year-Old Is Already a Better Dancer Than You'll Ever Be

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.
