I have no idea who Daniil Nikulin is, but I’m already a huge fan. In this video Daniil performs some ridiculously creative, eccentric and breathtaking solo jazz at the Jazz Roots festival in Paris last weekend.
Apparently he’s a dancer living in Moscow. I can’t even wrap my brain around all the different kinds of styling he’s throwing into his piece. I swear I see some kung fu in there. Every time I watch it, I see something new that delights me.
He’s got me thinking about moves I already know in new ways. Damn, I love this dance so much.
