PASCO, Wash. - If you've ever seen the infamous YouTube video "evolution of dance" you'll know who this man is.

Motivational speaker, Judson Laipply, is best known for his viral video showing an abridged history of dance, with more than 200,000,000 online views. This morning, he performed at Chiawana high school in Pasco.

For the last 12 years, Laipply has toured the country with his motivational program, using comedy and dance to inspire people to achieve their goals.

Laipply says, "I'm not saying anything new, I'm not saying anything they've never heard before. Anything I'm going to say their teachers have been saying for years, but when you hear it from a different source, and you hear it in a different style, sometimes you hope it reiterates an idea."

He says by making kids laugh and surprising them with dancing, he hopes to make an impact they'll remember.
