Bringing a bit of flavor to the mat, Dennis managed to effortlessly Crip Walk, Dougie, step, and hit a Woah while landing every flip. The moves, which started with a Black Power fist and nearly ended with her signature finger crown, have been hailed as a pure example of #BlackExcellence.

“This routine definitely reflects everything that I am today as a woman, and of course I had to incorporate a lot of parts of my culture,” Dennis told the Los Angeles Daily News.

The viral floor routine – which has been viewed over 6.6 million times in 24 hours – even caught the attention of Simone Biles, the most decorated American gymnast.

“I am overwhelmed with happiness and joy, thank you everyone for such positive messages, it means the world to me to have your support,” Dennis tweeted in response to the attention. “This is so surreal I can’t even believe it!”
