The incredible video shows a dance-off between a teacher and his student at a school talent show.


13-year-old Amir Wilson, a student at Hyde Leadership Charter School, the Bronx, New York, uploaded the video on YouTube on December 17, 2017.

A student and his dance teacher, Billy Cohen, took social media by storm a few months ago when the student posted a video on social media.

They were involved in a dance battle in front of hundreds of students in their school auditorium.

‘Battled my dance teacher at my school talent show. He killed it. It was lit. I had to give it to him at the end he bodied.’

The two dancers performed to the song Love Come Down by Kid the Wiz and SNS.

Dressed in a white sweatshirt and a pair of pants, the student begins dancing and instantly receives a cheer from the crowd for some impressive steps he dishes out.


Cohen then begins his performance and is greeted with louder cheers. The teenager is ecstatic with his teacher’s performance and is seen jumping with joy.

For the next round, Wilson knows he has huge competition. He confidently dances even busting out a split with ease.

The second round from the teacher is even more impressive and clearly shows that he had come out to win the battle. He also does the robot dance that leaves everyone stunned.

According to the teacher, the original plan was for them to perform their solo dances at the talent show. However, a performing-arts teacher suggested a dance-off and they readily agreed.

The teenager has been dancing since he was a toddler. He said he was impressed by his teacher’s talent. Cohen too was impressed with his student’s performance and knew he had to bring out his best against Wilson.
