Taylor Hatala has taken the internet by storm.
When the 11-year old dancer from Edmonton and her choreographer Laurence Kaiwai decided to put up a video of themselves dancing to Nicki Minaj’s track “Anaconda“, little did they know that their smooth moves would be seen around the world.
A week later, not only had they gotten the attention of Minaj herself, they’d racked up close to 7 million views.
Their clip even caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres, who called them “incredible” and invited them to appear on the show.

One look at her video and you’ll understand why Hatala is an instant favourite: Her perfectly-timed, high-energy moves are every bit as good as the pros. So what can we expect from the dancer in the future? Although we can safely assume more dancing, we’re pretty sure we have a star on our hands.
