This high school dance team has gone viral with an incredible six-minutes routine based on the “Harry Potter” series. But they’re not strangers to internet fame, in fact, this is their third viral video.
The Performing Arts Crew dance team from Walden Grove High School did it again, and this time, they added a bit of magic to their now traditional homecoming dance performance.
The video, recorded in September at the Homecoming 2018 of the school, managed to resume in less than seven minutes the storyline of J.K Rowling’s masterpiece, “Harry Potter.” The performance starts with Harry living under the stairs, finding out he’s a wizard and meeting his friends, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger.
Using props to simulate the stairs and the Hogwarts Express train, the dance team represented Potter’s entrance to the school and even the sorting hat ceremony, where the dancers, wearing the classic magic school uniform and the colors of each house, split into four groups before Harry was put into Gryffindor.
Then, they did an incredible show to represent Potter’s first flying lesson, and they added flair to the performance with the golden trio being carried in the back of the rest of the dancers as if they were flying.
After an entertaining enchantment class, and a bit of dueling among the students, Voldemort made his appearance on the dance floor, the basketball court of the course. Followed by a dozen dancers, the “dark lord” danced to Nicki Minaj’s “Chun Li” before the real battler with Potter started.
The crew repledged among the entire court, chasing each other with their wands as the performance reached its climax. After faking his death, Potter finally defeated Voldemort and had the whole dance crew celebrating as the show ended.
Fans of the boy who lived all around the world have praised the dance team for being able to fit the storyline of the seven books in their short performance. But this is not the first time the PAC gets internet attention.
Last year they took their high school far away from Kansas, or Arizona, with a “Wizard of Oz” performance inspired in the 1939 film of the same name. That performance caused such a stir on social media that the crew used it for their audition on “America’s Got Talent.”
They passed the audition with aces, but unfortunately, were cut off in the quarterfinals of the show.
In 2016, they did a Pixar inspired presentation, using the characters of Disney’s “Toy Story,” “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles,” and “Monster Inc.”
There’s no doubt the talented group of high school dancers is also highly creative, and they keep raising the bar with their Homecoming performances each year.
Meanwhile, a young graduate from Broadmoor High School also became an internet sensation after dancing his way from the stage to his seat after receiving his diploma.
Showing some crazy but incredible moves, the young boy caught the attention of his fellow students and everyone in attendance, causing laughs, shouts, and claps from the amused crow. He explained that since it was his last day as a high school student, he needed to leave in style.
