Simone Biles showed that there's more to her in a new video that showed her dancing to choreographed moves with her friends.
Simone Biles shared a new Instagram video showing her and her friends moving to a hip-hop song with choreographed dance moves. The gymnast dressed in black, with the right leg of her pants, pulled up, lead the trio, in a true Beyoncé fashion.
The ladies went all out with arm movements, twerking, hair flips, and deep squats.
The video appeared to have gotten recorded in a dance studio with graffiti on the wall, and an unseen audience encouraged Biles and her friends with loud cheers.
The post came with a bulging eye and black heart-shaped emoji as the caption. The gymnast's followers appreciated seeing her doing something other than flipping in the air and commended her dance moves in the comment section. One person wrote,
"Carefree and fierce."
"Is there anything you can't do?"
While a third wrote,
"She can really do anything."
While for some of the record-breaking gymnast fans, this is their first time seeing Biles dancing, in 2017, she competed on "Dancing with the Stars," and got to the semifinals with her pro dance partner, Sasha Farber.
The 22-year-old female got eliminated after getting a perfect score. The perfect score was not enough to keep Biles in the competition, but a "Perfect" photo shared recently on Instagram was enough to get her love from her followers.
The gymnast switched up her look by ditching her shoulder-length hair for big braids that ended with long pigtails. In the caption, the 22-year-old Olympic gold medalist wrote,
"Underestimate me… that will be cool."
The statement led one follower to write amid other comments of "So Cute," and "Beautiful,"
"I don't think anyone [is] underestimating you, girl."
The latter is accurate as Biles had an impactful year. She became the gymnast with the highest overall World Championship medal, thereby breaking a 13-year record held by Vitaly Scherbo.
The Texas resident shone more brightly than a diamond at the World Championships and has her sight set on the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Biles holds a total of 29 medals, with 19 gold, and plans to add to them next year, before retiring from gymnastics. In the meantime, she will train harder and dance with her friends whenever she can.
