Alla and Daniel is the mother/son dance duo who auditioned on America’s Got Talent. Before their performance, AGT judge Simon Cowell kidded and asked Daniel if they were married. When Daniel explained Alla is his mother, Cowell prodded, “Did your mom force you into this?” to which Daniel said quickly, “I forced her.” They proceeded to dance to the Maroon 5 song, “Moves Like Jagger.”
Daniel Novikov could not have become the World Pro-Am Pre-Teen 2 International Latin Champion without his mother…or his father. His parents run the Edelweiss Premier Ballroom in San Dimas, California. If you sign up on their website, you get the first lesson for free. A 45-minute private dance class typically costs $93 but with a Groupon coupon it’s $29, for a limited time. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
