When you discover you have a seriously awesome talent at a seriously young age, you hold onto that and put your heart and soul into it.
It’s amazing, the things that someone as young as a four-year-old boy can do.
Back in 2011 at the D.C. Tap Festival, Justin M. Lewis and Luke Spring performed what would go on to be one of the most epic tap dance routines we have ever seen!
The two both walk on stage, seeming somewhat modest. They give each other a high-five. Yeah, no big deal, it’s not like they are about to blow our minds or anything like that.
After that, they basically waste no time and jump right into their tap dance. And boy, the audience does not try to hide how surprised they are by how talented the two dancers are. Everyone starts cheering and we can’t blame them — the moves they are pulling off are extremely impressive.
If it weren’t for the major height difference, you would maybe even think that these two are the same age. I mean, yes, maybe Justin M. Lewis’ moves are slightly more refined due to his years of experience but overall, they seem to be on a pretty similar wavelength.
For that reason, this little boy is going to go so far!
As for Lewis, a D.C. native, he actually began dancing at the young age of five, so the two dancers probably feel like they can relate a lot to each other.
Lewis “began by watching the movie Tap with Gregory Hines,” according to his biography.
“Lewis then began to study dance at Knock On Wood Tap Studio in Silver Spring Maryland where he later became a member of the Pre-Professional Company, Tappers With Attitude (TWA). Under TWA Mr. Lewis danced on many famous stages including, Lincoln Theatre, Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, Blues Alley, The Smithsonian, National Corcoran Gallery, The Apollo Theatre in New York City and many more.
“Lewis was then accepted into a top Arts College in Chicago IL. He attended Columbia College Chicago from 2007-2009, where he majored in Performing Arts Management,” via his bio.
Lewis has taken on a whole lot of dance jobs since then. He became a principle dancer on “Tap Worx,” a new tap show at Universal Studios in Hollywood. We guess you can say he really made it big.
But it doesn’t end there. He was also a dancer for Rhythmic Circus’ “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now.” He has traveled across the country to perform on several different stages and has even performed at Super Bowl 52.
If Spring is anything like Lewis, and we’re assuming that he is (at least talent-wise), then it seems like he is in for a very bright future ahead.
In their performance, the two are perfectly in sync with one another, it’s actually crazy to watch. They are not a second off and move so fluidly. You can tell a lot of time and energy went into the rehearsals for this show. And it really pays off!
The two bang out a ton of tiny tap moves at lightning speed. They also twirl around and take huge steps at some points.
At one point, they even use their hands to mimic a little “patty cake” move which gives the performance a bit of comedic relief! The whole crowd gets the joke immediately and they laugh audibly.
This viral performance is simply remarkable, we think you just have to see it for yourself.
