If you’ve ever seen Valentin Chmerkovskiy perform, you’ll know that he is among the greatest dancers in the world.

You may have seen the Ukrainian-American professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars.

He won twice on the U.S. version of the show.

Chmerkovskiy started out on Season 2 and appeared in an episode on Seasons 4, 10, and 11.

He partnered up and competed in seasons 13 through 25. He skipped season 26, came back for seasons 27, 28, and 29, and will be appearing on Season 30.

Chmerkovskiy is also a two-time World Latin Dance Champion, which he won in the junior and youth categories.

He’s also a 14-time U.S. National Latin Dance champion.

That’s a lot of wins. So, it’s probably pretty hard to impress someone as renowned as he is.

But Chmerkovskiy was impressed with Camila.

Chmerkovskiy danced with Camila in May and was so impressed by her skills that he posted a video of their performance on Facebook.

“Hey, world meet Camila, my new dance partner. This Mother’s Day I can’t help but think of and thank all the mothers that support their children. Giving life to a child is hard, being a mother that supports her child is even more difficult,” Chmerkovskiy wrote in his post.

“Coming back from another weekend of working with young men and women, I am once again impressed by the discipline and talent that is out there, that’s a sign of some amazing mothers. #HappyMothersDay to all the moms out there making the tough choices sacrificing for their kids. Thank you!”

That video ended up being viewed more than 1.7 million times on Facebook alone. People were astonished by how talented Camila is.

Her dance skills were perfection.

Perfectly timed and dynamic. It must have taken her a lot of hard work and dedication to get them right.

There were so many children there watching the performance intently, and many of them were cheering wildly at seeing their fellow dance classmate do so well.

“You are a gifted teacher, coach, and friend for these kids. They will benefit from your incredible talent,” said a commenter.

Another wrote,

“She is terrific. Being a professional dancer this young girl has a wonderful future as a dancer. By the way she has a fantastic teacher.”

She truly has the talent of a much older dancer. I guess it just comes to her naturally. I can’t imagine how talented she will be when she gets older.

Maybe she’ll even be on Dancing With the Stars one day.

In the meantime, see her incredible performance in the video below!
