According to Agnes De Mille, “To dance is to be out of yourself. Large, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.” If that’s the case, Adilyn Malcom is one powerful 11-year-old girl. At just 11-years-old, her dancing makes many adults’ moves look lackluster and weak.
In this video, Adventure Club’s “Need Your Heart” (featuring Kai) begins to play as Adilyn meanders around calmly – looking like a typical kid. She begins to dance with increasing rapidity, making her extremities look like she’s not subject to typical human limitations like bones, joints and muscles.
As the music sings, “Take me away!” Adilyn seems to take herself away – transcending her body. The whole time she has an earnest look on her face, suggesting that she is embracing the music.
Her dancing toes the line between enthusiasm and restraint. Her movement is so controlled that it looks like there is an outside force – like water – limiting it. It suggests a maturity well beyond her years.
According to her Instagram, this precocious dancer goes by Adi. She has no formal training at all and learned to dance from watching YouTube videos. She has been dancing for less than a year, and actually prefers to race motocross! What a multi –talented kid!
Since she joined YouTube in October 2014, she’s garnered more than 11,000 subscribers and millions of viewers. Will you be one of them?
