Ivanah Campbell's dance moves have stolen the hearts of international celebrities like Chris Evans and Will Smith.

The six-year-old dancer from Port Elizabeth has also made a name for herself locally with a Facebook following of almost 40 000.

News24 caught up with her ballet teacher Portia Appolis.

"What a bubbly and gorgeous child," Appolis said.

"She's just one of those kids that you know is going to be a star."

In one video, Ivanah is seen dancing to American singer Lizzo's "Juice".

Lizzo shared the footage online, commenting: "Rare footage of me as a child."

That video has been watched more than 42 000 times since it was posted on Facebook on Friday.

Commenting on the viral videos, Appolis said: "At her age, wow, I can't believe it!"

"She has the x-factor… You give her something and she adds a little extra," she told News24.

Attempts to reach out to the Campbell family for their comment on little Ivanah's new-found international fame has so far proved unsuccessful.
