Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Salsa-Dancing Duo
Who: Kevin Téllez & Gaby Palacios
Why we chose them: It’s practically a law of the universe: Mini versions of things are crazy cute; and these two pint-sized salsa dancers are no exception. Meet Kevin Téllez and Gaby Palacios, the dancing duo whose video of their performance at the Salsa Festival in Québec is becoming an Internet sensation.
In this performance, the tiny dancers mirror their adult-size mentors, John and Johana (in matching outfits!), never missing a single beat. And don’t worry, they can keep up … have you seen their ridiculously fancy footwork?!
Fun fact: These kids are no strangers to an audience—they were the Smallest World Salsa Champions in 2012-2014, and Kevin appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2014 and currently performs in the Broadway musical “On Your Feet!”
