A talent show at a New York school took an exciting turn as both student and teacher took to the stage for an epic dance-off to remember.
Students at Hyde Leadership Charter School in the Bronx watched in delight as 13-year-old Amir Wilson battled it out on the stage with his dance teacher, Mr. Cohen.
The gifted two hit the stage and danced the Harlem Shake to “Love Come Down” by Kid the Wiz and DJ SnS.
“Battled my dance teacher at my school talent show. He killed it. It was lit,” Wison wrote in an Instagram post of the battle that has gone viral.
“I had to give it to him. At the end, he bodied,” Wilson complimented.
Wilson, who has been dancing since he was a toddler, said that he was beyond impressed by his teacher’s skills, displayed in front of approximately 300 students.
“I was shocked. It wasn’t like a bad shock,” he said. “He was doing things not a lot of people can do. It made me turn my head and really see how great of a dancer he is.”
Cohen said he was equally impressed with Wilson: “I was first very proud and I knew he could dance. … But I knew I had to bring my own choreography out there because I couldn’t hold back against such a good student.”
