Chinese breakdancing toddler becomes social media celebrity

China, Fushun
July 7, 2020 at 07:04 GMT -00:00 · Published

Xiao Xiao Chen, the 22-month-old hip-hop dancing sensation has no idea of the level of stardom he has risen to after a video of his skills went viral on the Chinese social media.

His Father Xiao Chen is a professional hip hop dancer based in Fushun, Liaoning province. He shared the story of his son's quick rise to fame with Ruptly on June 25 from his dance studio.

"When my wife was pregnant, I always took her to my dance studio and also let her listen to some music," said the dancing prodigy's father. "When my kid learned to walk, he would love to do some moves when the music was on. And sometimes, he would mimic my dance moves," he went on to say.

Xiao Xiao Chen surprised his family when he first began to show his dancing talent just after his first birthday. "When he was around 13 to 15-months-old, he could do flip turn which surprised us a lot, then we realised that he's got a dancing talent," said Xiao Chen.

Xiao's instant fame and popularity have undoubtedly got the family excited for a prosperous future, but they are attempting to keep their feet on the ground for as long as possible. "After my boy's dancing video went viral online, many people liked him a lot. And people would ask me about whether I intend to let my kid carry on and become a professional dancer like I am. My wife and I had the same agreement, if that is what he wants to become, a professional dancer, we will fully support him," explained the father.
