Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Bearded Alaskan Man
Who: Justin Hoyt from Ketchikan, Alaska
Why we chose him: Oh boy, is Justin a magnificent dancer or what (seriously, the Internet is currently obsessing over his glorious moves)!? Being the champ he is, Justin braves the icy cold weather and shows off his moves to Alicia Keys’ “No One” while a friend of his hangs out in the background blasting the tune over a 1980s boombox.
“I don’t really know what inspired me. I have been fixing on doing a series of dance videos to Alicia Keys’ music, because I’ve been getting really pumped on her stuff lately,” Justin tells the Alaska Dispatch News in a Facebook message. “But all of a sudden all of the pieces fell into place, and my friends were able to help make my dream a reality.”
Fun fact: The video was shot in Hoonah, a small Southeast Alaska town west of Juneau.
