GET TO KNOW JAY­DEN:

Favourite pizza top­ping: Hawai­ian! Favourite ice-cream flavour: Chocolate Favourite su­per­hero: Spi­der-Man and Hawk­eye

MA­NIA: How did you get into danc­ing?

JAY­DEN: “Grow­ing up I watched a whole bunch of Michael Jack­son mu­sic videos. I wanted to dance be­cause of him.”

MA­NIA: Do you have a favourite dance move?

JAY­DEN: “My favourite dance moves at the mo­ment are the Fort­nite emotes.”

MA­NIA: What’s the hard­est move you’ve learnt? Could you de­scribe how to do it?

JAY­DEN: “Prob­a­bly the James Brown Split. From a stand­ing po­si­tion, you fall into the splits then you bounce back up to how you started – stand­ing. It can go hor­ri­bly wrong.”

MA­NIA: All-time favourite song to dance to?

JAY­DEN: “Trea­sure – Bruno Mars.”

MA­NIA: What songs are you cur­rently into at the mo­ment?

JAY­DEN: “Fi­nesse – Bruno Mars.”

MA­NIA: You’ve made a few Just Dance tu­to­ri­als on your chan­nel, so I was won­der­ing if you have a favourite song from Just Dance 2018?

JAY­DEN: “Swish Swish – Katy Perry. I love the back­pack kid dance move.”

MA­NIA: What’s the most em­bar­rass­ing thing to hap­pen to you while per­form­ing?

JAY­DEN: “Al­ways rip­ping my pants. It al­ways hap­pens. It hap­pened last week on stage! Tip: never EVER wear white undies.”

MA­NIA: What’s the funniest thing to hap­pen to you while per­form­ing?

JAY­DEN: “See above, haha!”

MA­NIA: How long does it take to make a video?

JAY­DEN: “It de­pends on the video. A Just Dance game­play video will take all day. A no­rig­i­nal dance that I make up can take all week.”

MA­NIA: What do you like to do when you aren’t danc­ing?

JAY­DEN: “I’m a mas­sive nerd. I love gam­ing, cos­play, comics and movies. I also col­lect fig­ures and Funko Pops.”

MA­NIA: Do peo­ple recog­nise you on the street?

JAY­DEN: “Some­times. If it’s at a dance event then yes, peo­ple will recog­nise me.”

MA­NIA: Can you give us a hint about what we can ex­pect from you at VidCon?

JAY­DEN: “I’m so ex­cited to meet fans that watch my videos. If you are com­ing down to VidCon in Mel­bourne, be sure to bring your dance moves. I’m hop­ing to film a bunch of videos for my chan­nel and want ev­ery­one in­volved.”
