BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — Bowling Green native Jordan Daniels has been able to make a career out of posting content to social media and YouTube, mostly around his hip hop dance talent. He gained over 5.2 million TikTok subscribers and 1.3 million YouTube fans after launching his original hip-hop choreography and practice channel in 2016. He is now considered a famous social media influencer.
“It’s an honor to do what I love for the great brands that I truly love representing,” Daniels said. “It’s important to me that my partners uphold the same values that are important to me so that I can continue to support my community and my fans.”
Daniels, 18, is better known as @ Yvng Homie. On Friday, Yvng Homie celebrated the grand opening of his new dance studio on State Street in Bowling Green. He said it had always been his goal to open a studio and was happy to be able to do so in his hometown.
“I’ve done a lot of tutorials on my YouTube channel, so doing it in person is definitely a big step up,” he said. While other instructors will be working at the new studio called “Yvng Forever”, he still plans to teach via video chat when out of town. The new studio is located at 732 State Street.
“I would say any age, anyone can dance, anyone can show talent,” Yvng Homie said. “So I’m pretty sure anyone from 12 could do it.”
