From KERA News:
Right off Interstate 20 and large retail attractions, the roadway is normally busy.
But Jaylan Ford made getting stuck in traffic less bleak.
Ford had spent two years dancing near the Parks Mall at Arlington. The long, cement median became his impromptu stage. It didn’t take long for spectators to notice Ford’s head bobbing and fist pumping.
He moved to Houston last fall to live with his father, establish new routines and take some time off. When Ford left Arlington, people sent him photos of South Cooper Street and Pleasant Place.
Ford told his 15,000 Instagram followers he would not dance in public in Houston but would return to his spot in Arlington during the holidays.
Besides, Ford has been dancing since he was 14: First in the hallways in his Forest Hill high school before moving to Arlington.
“It’s not that I’m tired. it’s not that anything … I just wanted to take a break from it,” he said in an Instagram Reel.
