An 11-year-old Detroit boy’s dance moves captured the attention of the basketball arena’s dance cam — and a skilled dancing usher! It’s no surprise that a video from the game quickly went viral, because both guys’ dances are seriously impressive!
A “Dance Cam” found the coolest dancer in the stadium when it panned over 11-year-old Antwain Alexander at the New York Knicks V. Detroit Pistons game on Nov. 19. Just when everyone thought they couldn’t compete with the youngster’s skillful moves, stadium usher Shannon Sailes, 46, challenged him to a dance-off from the sidelines! You have to see what happened!

After thirty seconds of panning the crowd, the Dance Cam found the best dancer in the crowd! Antwain hammed it up in front of the cameras, but once he realized that the cameras were lingering over him, he got into some serious moves!
Antwain’s smile is seriously contagious — but we wish we could as easily swipe his dance routine!

Antwain definitely got himself noticed! “He had been trying to get that dance cam to be on him throughout the whole entire game,” Antwain’s father, Pastor Alexander, told ABC News.
Arena usher Shannon has quite the reputation for showing off his dancing skills in the aisle — and Antwaine noticed! “He was, like, doing his moves and everything, and then they went back to me and I stood up and I said, ‘Come on!'” Antwain told ABC News.
“It was time for me to step up,” Sailes told the news of his decision to challenge the boy.
Two days after the Detroit Pistons posted the video to their YouTube account, the video reached over four million views.
