In the competitive world of Los Angeles, where an aspiring artist is practically obligated to take on several different skill sets just to be a part of the race, Olivia "Chachi" Gonzales is perhaps one of the best equipped for an imminent rise to stardom. In addition to being a YouTube vlogger, makeup tutorial artist, and comedian, Gonzales is an accomplished hip hop dancer and seems almost effortless in her perfection on the dance floor.
Gonzales' perhaps most well-known accomplishment to date is winning the sixth season of America's Best Dance Crew, a popular dancing competition airing on MTV, as a member of I.aM.mE, a six-dancer group which has coined its own individual style, "Brain Bangin," which is described as "a series of connections and large scale visuals that create shapes and puzzles with the human body" in order to blow away the audience. On her own, however, Gonzales is just as capable of creating a memorable, eye-popping choreography, as she proves in the video below to the tune of Mac Miller's "Smile Back."
The performance was filmed at Planet Funk Academy, a Houston, Texas, dance studio founded by Shawn Welling, who frequently collaborates with Gonzales for his dance-centric web series, "AXI: Avengers of eXtreme Illusions." Welling also filmed and directed this same performance.
