A 6-year-old breakdancing phenom is on the verge of becoming an online star after video of her performance at an international competition was posted on YouTube on Sunday.
The girl, identified as “Bgirl Terra,” was filmed competing in the “Baby Battle” division of the Chelles Battle Pro tournament in Paris against an unidentified older boy. The footage of their battle has already drawn more than 250,000 views in just two days.
Though no slouch himself, the boy quickly found himself just as impressed as the crowd; at one point in their battle, he points toward Terra in acknowledgement of her skills.
The Huffington Post reported on Monday that Terra, a member of London dance troupe the Soul Mavericks, would go on to the finals of her competition, ultimately losing to 11-year-old American Jalen Testerman, aka “Bboy Jstyles.” However, event organizers said on Twitter that Terra received a special award for her efforts.
