A 20-year-old is wowing the internet with her amazing dance moves. Morgan Bullock went viral when she posted her jig dance video on TikTok.
In the clip, she composed some very snazzy moves to popular Beyoncé’s remix of Megan Thee Stallion’s Savage, WomenAfrica reports.
One of the accolades she has received for the dance moves was an invitation to dance at Dublin’s 2021 St Patrick’s festivities organised by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
The 20-year-old said that she really loves Irish dancing, adding that: “It was like nothing I’d never seen before.”
She said that the first time she came in contact with the dance, she asked her mom if she could try it. It should be noted that Bullock is quite a successful dancer who has participated in renowned competitions in Ireland and the United States.
Riding on the fame of that her short TikTok video, the young lady has gone ahead to publish more dancing videos.
“It’s been really surreal, honestly. Surreal is the word I would use. With all that’s happening with lockdown and Covid, it’s so strange to be spending my time doing this (being interviewed). I just didn’t expect this to happen,” she said during an interview.
The internet sensation said that shortly after she posted the video, she got thousands of comments from people in Ireland, China and Russia, something that came as a big surprise to her.
She has, however, got some very negative comments from people who think she is appropriating their culture.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a Nigerian woman, Fade Ogunro, has given hope to a young boy identified as Anthony Mmesoma Madu whose dancing video went viral a few weeks ago.
In the video that has been watched over 14 million times, the boy can be seen making amazing moves in the rain on a very wet floor. He is one of the 24 students at the Leap of Dance Academy in Lagos state, an academy founded in 2017.
The 11-year-old dancer said that many people believe that ballet is only for females, adding that when dancing, he wants people to see that a boy can also do the same thing.
He said that he loves dancing because he gets a special feeling of being in a dream when he is practising ballet. Anthony added that he was very happy when his teacher informed him that he had gone viral online.
