Meet Du-Shaunt “Fik-Shun” Stegall, an incredibly talented young man who can move his body in such unbelievable ways you’ll be watching with your mouth open.
Over the last two decades, tv has been flooded with competitions to show you’re the best at something. The Voice and The X Factor for singing, The Great British Bake Off for baking, and X Got Talent for pretty much everything else. One that sometimes gets overlooked is So You Think You Can Dance. If Fik-Shun is anything to go by, that’s a mistake.
He appeared on the tenth series of the show and blew the judges’ minds with his robot dance. You might think you’ve seen a robot dance before, but you’ve never seen one like this! All three judges, very experienced dancers and directors, were watching with stunned expressions. He got a unanimous yes to go through to Las Vegas, which ironically was held less than a mile from where he used to perform on the strip for passing tourists.
The Las Vegas round added Jason Derulo as a judge and he’s no slouch himself. Even he looked thrilled by Fik-Shun’s moves. At times it seems like his head is no longer connected to his body, the movement is surreal! At other points, he appears to float like he’s no longer attached to the floor. It’s possible that were he still alive he could have given Michael Jackson a run for his money.
Once you’ve watched this unbelievable video, it should come as no surprise to you that Fik-Shun was the well-deserved male winner of season ten. He continues to work on his dancing and has a substantial online following.
Du-Shaunt Stegall was born on September 2nd, 1994, in Wichita, Kansas. His mother is named Sabrina Brooks, and his father is Cali Stegall. Du-Shaunt has three siblings, two brothers named Taveaus Woods, Sherod Rodgers and a sister named Lilrayray Realstud. Unfortunately, there’s no information about what his parents do or whether his siblings also dance.
He started dancing when he was only five years old. Cali used to do the wave for him to entertain him, and Du-Shaunt became obsessed. He practiced constantly until he mastered the move. From then on, he was hooked. The family moved to Las Vegas in 2006, and he enrolled in Las Vegas Academy, a performing arts school, as well as studying Tae Kwan Do.
Before appearing on So You Think You Can Dance, Fisk-Shun built up a substantial following on Instagram and TikTok. He also performed on the street with his friend Kidd Stylez, raking in impressive donations from residents and tourists alike. Since the show, he has increased his following to 4.4 million on TikTok and 2 million on Instagram. His estimated worth is around $600,000 and it’s set to increase as his following continues to grow.
On the rare occasions that he has downtime he likes to relax and hang out with his two dogs. His dream of dancing for a living has come true. Once you’ve watched his video a few times, take a look at his performance with co-winner Amy.
