A post shared by Backpack Kid (@i_got_barzz) on

You guys. Do you know ‘Backpack Kid‘ from Instagram? Do yourselves a favor and give him a follow ASAP. Even though his bio claims, “I can’t dance”, you’ll quickly realize how untrue that is. His signature dance move, called “flossin'”, is pretty addicting once you nail it down.

He recently attended the 10th Annual Zumba Instructor Convention, where he performed on stage with students from CARE Elementary School, an academy that provides a thriving environment for young kids from a low-income area of Miami. In front of 7,500 Zumba Instructors, Backpack Kid (a.k.a. Russell Horning) and the CARE Kids showed off their impressive dance moves and everyone got in on the flossin’ action. Check it out!
