Nia Dennis, UCLA gymnast, goes viral after stunning performance

UCLA gymnast Nia Dennis has become a social media sensation once again, following her recent epic performance celebrating “Black Excellence.”

Dennis, a 21-year-old senior, began her floor routine Saturday set to Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA,” and later included Tupac Shakur’s “California Love.” She earned a near-perfect score of 9.950.

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

“I wanted to have a dance party because that’s my personality and of course I had to shout out LA because we out here, UCLA,” she continued.

This isn’t the first time Dennis has gone viral. Last year, she stunned the internet with a routine set to a collection of Beyoncé songs.
