NEW JERSEY (CNN) — Two kids are burning up the dance floor — and the Internet — with their amazing moves, and video of them salsa dancing has gone viral.

They are the pint-sized pair whose salsa is burning up the Internet.

Johana Vasquez teaches the kids at her New Jersey dance studio, saying she’s never seen a child that’s better than Kevin Tellez.

Beberly Devers, 6, has been taking lessons only a year, but 8-year-old Kevin has been studying with Vasquez since he was 5 years old.

“Believe me, he knows what he’s doing, he knows he’s good, he knows he got it,” said Vasquez. “He loves the attention.”

And boy has he gotten attention since people flipped over this video from a salsa congress in Israel.

“What I like the most is moving my legs fast and carrying the lady,” said Kevin.

Still, he admits that throwing the girl is the hard part.

“Yeah, because sometimes they’re really heavy,” said Kevin.

The kids have been wowing salsa fans for a couple of years…

In fact, both Kevin and Beberly are world champions, having won their age group at the World Latin Dance Cup in Miami with different partners throughout the last two years.

By the way, Kevin wants to be a professional dancer when he grows up. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
