Florence is an American YouTube odorite known for his natural, energetic dancing and bouncy original choreography. Florence's carefree, humble attitude and bouncy dance style encourage the fun aspect of dancing. Every dance cover features at least one Yoshi, whether in the background or as part of his outfit. His more recent videos utilize special effects to enhance the music and choreography.
The name Florence originates from the name of one of his original characters.
