Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Atlanta Middle School Teacher
Who: Ron Clark from Atlanta, GA
Why we chose him: It’s official: Ron Clark, founder of The Ron Clark Academy, a one-of-a-kind educational experience inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts, just SLAYED hip-hop artist DLOW’s “Bet You Can’t Do It Like Me Challenge.”
The 30-second jaw-dropping video shows Ron alongside his middle school students doing the Milly Rock, Hit the Quan, Whip/Nae Nae and oh-so-many more popular dance moves. And it goes without saying that the talented group totally nailed it!
Fun fact: The idea for this buzz-worthy video came from Ron’s students. He told Huffington Post that a few of his students texted him during winter break wanting to teach him the dance. On Jan.3, they met at the school, rehearsed for two hours and then posted it on social media.
