Elke Boxoen is a dog dancer from Belgium who often performs with her border collie, Jessy. They are very accomplished and have won many championships such as the European Championships in Prague, and the European Championship in 2016, and were crowned world champions in the freestyle discipline in 2017.
But the pair went viral after their performance at the FCI Dog Dancing World Championship for their dance performance that interweaves a beautiful story executed with an exquisite dance to Once Upon A time.
When you watch their special performance, you’ll be part of the nearly 7 million viewers transfixed by their amazing performance.
As they began their performance, the story also begins. Their dance unfolds as though they are mirror images of each other, watching each other through a looking glass of sorts, each move carefully mimicked by Jessy.
Their choreography is amazing and surely represents countless hours of training. But their seamless performance carries you away to a place that makes it all seem so easy as their story unfolds.
As you watch their moves, you’ll soon realize that although Jessy does follow Elke’s lead, he also executes his moves on his own. At times his back is to her yet he never breaks his stride and continues to flawlessly perform his artful dance.
They both are talented but of course, Jessy steals the show. As the suspense builds, the crowd is drawn into the story and unable to look away. How does the story end? We won’t tell. You’ll have to watch it for yourself and you’ll be glad you did.
As always, please feel free to share with your friends.
