You are not going to believe this incredible US Open Swing Dance Championship performance! Alexis Garrish and Ryan Boz, both only 15 years old, perform this amazing swing dance and take the top prize.
Every move in their routine is flawless. The judges and audience watch in awe for every step. At the end they flung themselves into each other’s arms, because even they were impressed by their performance.
The judges made their rulings. The scores popped up on the screen. Jaws literally dropped. This memorable moment is caught on video so you can share in this experience with these talented young dancers.
