Los Guapacharros Are The Viral TikTok Dancers That You Absolutely Need To Be Watching

I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for pretty much any viral dance but I’ve never been one to pay any attention to TikTok trends. I know that makes no sense but it is what it is.

But enter Los Guapacharros.

This group of athletic, nearly naked, dancers donning traditional Charro suits (or at least parts of them) has taken over TikTok and Mexican news networks with their flashy dance routines, fit bodies, and smooth sensual moves. And I am here for every second of it.

If you don’t already know them: meet Los Guapacharros.

At least here in Mexico it’s been nearly impossible to not see this group of young men popping up all over social media. But for those of you less fortunate, Los Guapacharros have stolen the attention of all the sexes as they dance to hit tunes sensually clad in iconic Charro attire.

The group has skyrocketed in popularity thanks to their interpretations of already classic TikTok dances and choreographies such as “El Despreció” along with some of their own choreography to songs from the Backstreet Boys and Pedro Fernández.

The group belongs to the Humberto Martinez Dance Academy, which is why it’s no coincidence that these ‘Guapacharros’ move so well. Being dance students they are young professionals, disciplined in the art of dance and their talent really shows through in their videos. But these guys are about much more than hot dances: their official Instagram account is filled with other great choreography and funny prank videos.

Their TikTok dance routines are causing some serious loss of productivity – or is that just me?

I mean I know that I’m not alone at just scrolling through video after video on their TikTok and Instagram accounts. I can’t be. The group’s Instagram account already has more than half a million followers and their TikTok videos have been viewed millions of times.

They’ve danced to everything from Backstreet Boys…

The group gets creative with their choreography but also their outfit changes, camera angles, and even plot lines. They’re soooooo good!

And electronic music…

Whoever thought to mix Erik Prydz’ ‘Call on Me’ song with traditional Charro outfits, you’re a genius. This works on so many levels.

To Pedro Fernandez.

It’s not all newish music that the group dances to. They also reinvent classic hits from Pedro Fernandez and other traditional artists to fit their own take on choreography.

Disturbing Video Shows Workers Feeding White Kids First At A Georgia Daycare

Schools and daycares are supposed to be safe spaces for kids to be able to learn and to express themselves. However, we know that isn’t always the case. For years, children have had to fear gun violence on campus, bullying, and sexual assaults.

A recent video that’s gone viral shows that even younger kids aren’t safe from trauma, as a daycare in Georgia is being accused of blatant racism against its Black kids.

Young kids are experiencing hate and racism even at places meant to be safe for them.

The Kids ‘R’ Kids daycare center in Roswell, on the outskirts of Atlanta, has been accused of racism after a father checked in to the live feed at lunch time to see how his two-year-old son was doing and noticed that the white children were all fed first while the Black children were made to wait.

Adryan McCauley told CBS46: “They were skipping all of the Black kids it seemed like. All the white kids got their lunch, and all the Black kids had to wait. From the videos and pictures that we saw today, we are just completely disturbed.”

McCauley took a screenshot which he posted to Instagram, but the full video has not been released. He added that the boy’s mother asked the nursery what had happened and was reportedly told by the director: “I’m not really sure because I’m not in the classroom, maybe it’s a dietary thing.”

One of the families was sure to share what happened with the public.

According to the Daily Mail, the family of the 2-year-old posted the screenshot to Instagram, where it went viral.

“This is truly unbelievable. You better know this won’t be the last time you hear from me on this,” user @marquis_dagreat wrote, along with the screenshot. “Why does every white kid have their food? Not one black child has food in front of them! Thank God for cameras in classrooms because there is no way to hide this racism!”

“In the year 2021 this is truly unbelievable. As blacks we always strive to send our kids to schools in Suburban area’s [sic], but I’m telling you first hand that is not always best,” they continued. “This is not a black or white issue this is simply wrong!”

The brand behind the daycare has cut ties with the Georgia location.

The corporate office responded on Thursday by calling the screenshot “disturbing” and cutting ties with the location in question. 

“Our company has decided to terminate that franchisee’s Kids ‘R’ Kids contract and branding, effective immediately, leaving them to operate independently,” President and CEO David Vinson said in the statement, posted to Instagram. “We apologize to the family, the community and all of those impacted by this situation and will use this as a learning tool to remind our Kids ‘R’ Kids staff on the importance of diversity and inclusivity.”

Vinson added that the corporate office will help locate alternate preschool options for families displaced by the decision.
