In the viral video, a group presented an excellent performance that wowed not only the audience at the Deutsches Theater München but as well as the viewers from all over the world.

The performance was inspired by a legendary swing dancer, Markus Koch, who was inspired by the song, “Killer Boogie,” released in 1973 by Jan Rietman – a Dutch pianist and radio and television announcer.

With the way the dancers moved, it was like watching a dance video in fast-forward. Needless to say, the crowd was amazed by their performance.
