When you dance in your living room, people don’t typically get to see your performance (unless you forget to shut the blinds, of course).
But a man named Sven Otten (aka JustSomeMotion) actually filmed himself dancing at home – and his video racked up a whopping 52 million views on YouTube. Pretty amazing, right?
Once you see him in action you might want to dance like him too!
He learned on his own.
Otten didn’t learn how to dance by taking classes at a professional school. He’s actually self-taught and developed skills by watching videos online. After starting, Otten realized he’d found an activity he loved – which is why it turned into his passion!

One day, Otten decided to hit record and put on a dance performance in his room. Little did he know, the video would take the internet by storm.
Otten is dressed in a suit and loafers with Parov Stelar’s song “All Night” in the background. His feet quickly get moving to the rhythmic track, and he appears to pull out the “moonwalk.” But that’s not all he’s got up his sleeve…
He gets his whole body going and it’s awesome to watch.
There are some dancers in this world that keep you hooked with how their body moves. Sven Otten is one of them. He starts pulling out a variety of dance moves that blend perfectly with the song.
Otten’s feet move at lightning speed during his performance.
It’s hard to believe that a guy who is self-taught could dance as incredibly as he does. Otten even created his own dance style that is referred to as “neo-swing.” According to MARTA, it’s a combination of Tectonic, Rebolation, the Charleston, and the Melbourne Shuffle.
After Otten shared the video on YouTube and it went mega-viral.
Viewers have left comments like:
“I’ve watched this 100 times. I just can’t love it enough!”
Another person also can’t get enough of the performance, saying:
“I gave up counting how many times I’ve watched this genius doing his thing! Pure joy watching it over and over! Thank you sir, for making me smile every single time!”
The video’s success has brought Otten down a road of exciting opportunities. He ended up becoming well-known in Germany, taking part in publicity events and television shows. Otten was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone in Italy, and he’s made his mark in Brazil and the U.S. as well.

For Otten, it’s been a dream come true.
What started out as pursuing a new passion, turned into an entire career for Sven Otten (JustSomeMotion). He now has over 384K subscribers to his YouTube channel alone. On it, he shares a variety of videos, including dance clips and his own tutorials so that fans can learn the moves too.
He’s an inspiration.
Otten is very appreciative of his fans and for where he is today. He wrote on YouTube:
“So incredible! Beyond grateful! Now dancing is not only my passion but also my work. Dreams come true! Thank you all so much for watching it and following me. I really appreciate all people out there who support me and my channel throughout the years.”
It’s a dance video that might become one of your favorites – and to think, it all took place in Otten’s room!
