RJ Higton and Dilyn Reynolds are the dancers who learned and perfected the extraordinary routine.

At the beginning of the performance, you can see the duo standing in an empty room before the music starts. Before long, they’re breaking into a great dance.

The choreography is brilliant, but the dancers also put their all into it and bring it to life.

So many different genres of dance are expressed in this routine! Seeing jazz, ballet, modern and lyrical dance all in one show is breathtaking. The entire time, these two dancers bend, spin, do high kicks and many other awesome moves during the electric show.

About 1:23 into the video, Dylin stands on RJ’s leg, balancing on one foot.

After that, they stand back to back and do even more impressive moves. The routine just gets better and better—at one point, RJ swings his partner through the air and somehow she lands on her feet!

The last minute of the routine is full of jaw-dropping moves and perfectly timed choreography.

As they get toward the end of the routine, Dylin swings upside down on RJ’s neck using just her feet to hang on.

After that, they mimic each other and do flawless pirouettes, high kicks and even a flying-split.

These two clearly practiced so much and they stay right on cue the entire routine.

It’s not just the fact that they do the choreography so perfectly that makes this so great—they also bring such a powerful energy to the performance that instantly captivates you!

Dylin dives into RJ’s arms one more time to end the performance.

The strength this routine demands from each dancer is remarkable, particularly from RJ who holds his partner in the air supporting all of her body weight multiple times. Choreographer Amanda Cathey picked the two most perfect dancers for this show. She must have been thrilled with them because they killed it!
