Michael Jackson was an inspiration to many and will continue to inspire future generations with his legacy of talent. Eli is a shining example.

Micheal Jackson was a PEDIFILE,, a Child Molester!! What kind of sick people would want their child growing up trying to imitate & looking up to a person like Michael Jackson???What is this world coming to?? Is their any wonder we have the crime we have today?? I'm not a racist, but i just don't believe an adult should take sexual advantage of children,,,& Michael Jackson did just that!!

awww,sweet.michael would be proud. same happened with my 13 yr old daughter when michael died I'm watching news, he also caught her eye,and said "wow,he's amazing" then started researching all of his videos watching it and amazed her!from then on she loves michael jackson and I love her more because of that, bec I'm a big fan.honestly,she never ask me about michael's skin color,and I'm proud of her for that,I think its in the culture..we don't prejudice. michael inspires children through his dance moves and videos, it brings them joy and smile.. RIP my king.

We should celebrate & encourage our children when they are passionate about something. Congrats on achieving your goals Eli, have fun with it, that is the most important part.

I also wanted to add that I thought all of other little boys and girls (at the parade) and in the group did a outstanding job too, you all were stealing the show! I hope that these instructors pour this much time & dedication too all their students, and we will see many more of these kind of stories.

It would be nice to see an article on the class as a whole, bc...you're right, the whole studio did a great job in the parade. It was not just one person.

His instructors Lori Berkheimer and Shalena Gonzalez call him a natural....

Someone please tell me that Lori is not still teaching dance? I remember when she taught me about 25yrs ago down by the square in Hanover. Powder Blue double doors... She has got to be in her fifties by now.
