FaithTap Staff 1/2/2019
Growing up, most of us loved to dance to the beat. We may not have kept that love for dancing today. But once upon a time, we were more than happy to groove to the rhythm. For the lucky few, dance continues to be a huge part of their lives. In fact, they train hard and end up becoming professional dancers later in life.
This talented duo is a perfect example of such. Meet Artyon and Paige. They may just be 8 and 9 years old respectively, but these two have dancing skills better than most adults! Artyon and Paige both appeared on America's Got Talent where they blew the judges away with their stunning tribute to "Dirty Dancing".
Back in 1987, a film called "Dirty Dancing" was released. The romantic drama starred Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in the lead roles. It told the simple story of a young woman who falls in love with her dance instructor. Since its release, everyone knew better than to put Baby in the corner. And other than its unforgettable one-liners, it was the final dance to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" that solidified this movie as a cult classic.
Over the years, Patrick and Jennifer's performance have been covered countless times. And it should come as no surprise! With its lively lyrics and ripening climax, its no wonder the iconic dance has built a legacy of its own. The young dancers you are about to meet are far too young to watch "Dirty Dancing". But Aryton and Paige look like they're having the time of their lives with their tribute, they even manage to get approval from Simon Cowell himself.
To pull off the "Dirty Dancing" sequence is no easy feat. But Aryton and Paige make it look easy! They put on a flawless performance, captivating the judges and audience from start to finish. Simon was admittedly skeptical at first. The vocal judge didn't mince words when he told the young duo that he wasn't so impressed by their last performance. But upon hearing this song choice, he was more than intrigued.
Artyon and Paige showcase one flawless dance move after another. They even stun the crowd with intricate twists, turns, and cartwheels. When it came time for the climax, the daring duo switched it up with a move that brought the entire room to their feet.
They may be young, but Aryton and Paige have such an amazing talent and passion for dancing. Their stars are only just beginning to shine, so we're excited to see where their talent will take them next!
