Will Smith is a Big Fan of This Plus-Sized Dancer on Instagram 


Will Smith recently shared a video of plus-sized dancer Sione Maraschino and gushed about his dancing abilities, and it went viral fast. 


With over a million likes on Instagram, Will’s post with the caption “Go ‘head @sionemaraschino!! Dust them shoes off!!” had people flocking to the comments to cheer his on-point dancing skills on. As more stars and Instagram denizens commented, it was revealed that we have seen Sione’s dancing skills before. 


In the hit song “All About That Bass,” he also made a cameo and killed his performance there. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson commented on the shared video, revealing that he already knew who Sione was because he had played a younger “The Rock” in Central Intelligence, a movie that Johnson starred in opposite comedian Kevin Hart.


Arsenio Hall, who is also best known for the Arsenio Hall Show, commented as well, simply hyping up Sione with the word “Yes!”

Since Will’s posting of the video, it has already been viewed 6,990,729 times, and probably more now. It has also reached12,146 comments in all.


After the post, Sione himself went on his Instagram to share the routine to his followers. He took the dance he did in the video Will posted and applied it to other songs. In a four-video compilation, we see Sione bopping to both “Baby Shark” and Normani’s “Motivation.” The change in tempo did not deter him and he just adjusted accordingly so he could time it with the music.

In case people don’t know, Sione has been grooving to other genres of dance. A quick peek of his Instagram will show u that he excels in ballet, twerking, and street-style dancing, too.
