You Should Know 14-Year-Old Dancing Kween Kyndall Harris

October 29, 2017

Watching Kyndall Harris dance, you understand immediately why she was chosen for Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour: Her musicality, energy, and natural stage presence bring to mind a younger version of Jackson herself. Kyndall’s first major gig—with the Memphis Grizzlies junior dance team—came at the tender age of 6, and her star has only risen since. You probably saw Kyndall compete alongside Taylor Hatala on “World of Dance” last summer, and videos for big names like Jackson and Chris Brown have built her a solid YouTube following—more than 17,000 subscribers at press time.

“Always stay hungry, follow your dreams, and never forget to work hard.”—Kyndall Harris
