Dancer of the Week: Florida Man Surprises Internet with His Smooth Dance Moves
Who: Mike Alancourt
Why we picked him: Dance isn’t just about learning choreography, it’s about feeling the music—and this Florida man is absolutely feelin’ his hip-hop routine set to the tune of Post Malone’s “Wow.”
Mike Alancourt went viral over the weekend for his surprisingly stellar dance moves. He even got attention from rapper Post Malone who shared the clip to his Facebook account and actor Will Smith who gave him a shout out on Instagram: “YOOOOOOO! Dude is SLAYIN’ this thing!!” Post Malone and Smith’s posts alone garnered more than 15 million views.
But clearly this isn’t Alancourt’s first time dancing. The 40-year-old man reportedly takes “drop-in” hip hop dance classes at 1 Vibe Dance in Jacksonville, Florida, a studio which welcomes dancers of all skill levels. 1 Vibe Dance originally posted the clip last weekend and all we can think is “wow,” we’re so glad they did!
Fun fact: Mike’s choreographer is Jennifer Colvin, owner of 1 Vibe Dance and a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader!
