It’s a space where we can do whatever we want without people who are going to judge us. We can sing and dance all we want. Just make sure that the doors and the windows are closed.

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?

You will love his dance moves!

His dancing skills are the fruit of his hard work and passion.

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!

He didn’t expect the dance video he recorded in his room to go viral.

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’s like a pro.

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.
