Six-year-old b-girl Terra has garnered attention for her incredible talent break dancing and recently collaborated with New Zealand-based artist Kody Nielson for his music video “Demons.” Director Francis Wallis told the New Zealand Herald News that Nielson is a big fan of the adorable break dancer and was trying to find a way to work with her.


The tiny dancer isn’t just known for being one of the best break dancing babies out there – she’s famous for being one of the best break dancers, period. The English native is a member of the renowned break dance group and world champions Soul Mavericks and travels the world competing in break dance competitions. In just the past few months, Terra has traveled to Germany, Denmark and South Korea for the R-16 tournament.


Terra, née Dachiya Atkinson, hails from Wolverhampton, U.K. and started doing handstands when she was just two years old, reports the Daily Mail. She has an older sister, Damita, who goes by “Eddie” when she is break dancing. The two of them performed on “The Ellen Show,” where Ellen Degeneres gifted them with iPads so they can watch videos of their performances.
