These Two Latino Dance Sensations Are Everything You Wish You And Your Siblings Were
The Morales family of Fresno, Calif., must be super proud, because siblings Gavin and McKenzie Morales are two adorable dance sensations. They ROCK so much that their wicked dancing has been featured on some of your favorite television shows.
Gavin Morales, 11, had only been dancing for four years when he first appeared on “The Ellen Show.”
Me after watching Gavin spin: ?
And he did NOT hold back when it came to showing off his skills.
McKenzie, 13, has a little more dance experience under her belt, and she is slaying in her own right.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate this teen’s super strong toes.
Here’s how much Gavin and McKenzie Morales are SLAYING the dance game right now:
McKenzie and Gavin have won numerous dance awards, including some top national honors, and have now been featured on two different Ellen Degeneres shows.
McKenzie first started dancing at 7 years old because her parents thought it would help her overcome her “severe anxiety.”
“I suffer from severe anxiety and most of the time I just want to stay in my room and don’t want to face the world,” McKenzie told judges of EllenTube’s first original series “‘tWitch & Allison’s Dance Challenge.” McKenzie added, “Dance and my parents help me get through those tough times.”
Gavin started dancing when he was 6 years old. His biggest inspiration? Watching his sister practice.
“I started dancing because I was watching my sister dance and I was like, ‘That’s so easy. I could do that,'” Gavin told Ellen Degeneres. “And then I was in the lobby of the dance studio, and I just started teaching myself all these moves. Now I am at a dance studio training, and now I’m on The Ellen Show!”
Oh, they have even been on Lifetime’s popular reality TV show “Dance Moms.”
And you can find plenty of drama on momma Morales’ Twitter page.
Keep it up, you two. Your future is looking suuuper bright.
