Christopher Hammer tore up the dance floor at the K-Days Talent Search competition.
 
The 13-year-old hip-hop dancer made a huge impact, beating out hundreds of entries and contestants to advance to the semi-finals in the 13-21 age category.
 
For the semi-finals, Hammer performed live on stage at K-Days. From there, the top four contestants from each category were selected to compete in the finals, with a chance to win $2000.
 
"For the finals I was last to [perform], so I got to watch some of the other competitors and make some friends and then I competed, before waiting around for the results," said Hammer.
 
Even though Hammer didn't win, the young student is going into Grade 8 at Rudolf Hennig Junior High School and has a bright future ahead of him.
 
His style of dance is categorized as hip-hop, but includes plenty of variety including animation, locking, popping, street, R&B, boogaloo and house.
 
Hammer dances almost year-round at 3SB Studios and competes in the Junior Advanced Accelerated Category.
