Her routine was created with the help of choreographer Chris Ortega from San Diego and her own sister “It was a combination from a whole bunch of people” she said. The routine incorporated “Quan,” “Dab” and the “Whip/Nae Nae” moves into it.
DeJesus got a score of 9.925 out of 10 on her performance to help her team defeat Utah.
