Teacher and His Students' 'Uptown Funk' Dance Routine Is Pure Magic

This high school in Texas is an actual real life High School Music, minus Zac Efron.


Set to Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" featuring Bruno Mars, Scott Pankey and his students at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School in Dallas choreographed a giddy routine that is damn spectacular. This will make you jump up and boogie right in your goddamn living room (the kids still say "boogie," right?). This will also make you wish you'd stayed in that Modern Jazz dance class your mom forced you to take in the eighth grade. Viral videos from high schools are kind of getting to be like Kim Kardashian selfies—there's so so so so so many of them, but every once in a great while one of them stands out in a purely magical way.

My only issue is that it needs more curlers.


It's super cute, but we all acknowledge it's really an excuse for Mr. Pankey to show of his moves and star in a viral video, right? I can't hate, though, cause his body in those pants has more mental sticking power than the song.
