I used to work at a surf shop on Bourke Street, which is really the busiest part of Melbourne. And there was like, you could busk on Bourke Street. I really, really wanted to busk.

Most of these dancers identify as Dubsmashers. They then post or cross-post the videos to Instagram, where they can reach a wider audience. Though Jalaiah is very much a suburban kid herself — she lives in a picturesque home on a quiet street outside of Atlanta — she is part of the young, cutting-edge dance community online that more mainstream influencers co-opt.
