Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: High Schoolers Dancing to ‘Jingle Bell Rock’
Who: Four students from Lavaca High School in Arkansas
Why we chose them: So fetch! High school guys aren’t exactly known for their willingness to look uncool. But hey, dancing brings out the best in people—and these four students from Arkansas’ Lavaca High School brought down the house with their very own spot-on rendition of the Mean Girls’ classic “Jingle Bell Rock” routine that would make Gretchen Wieners proud.
They nail it all—from the struts and the leg-slaps to the missteps that lead to our favorite music mishap when Katie Heron has to pick up the tune a cappella (oh, these guys go there!). These four gents prove “the limit does not exist” when it comes to bringing some fun and silliness to the holiday season.
You go, Glen Coco!
Fun fact: The audience had apparently watched this scene from Mean Girls as many times as we have, because they chimed in without missing a beat.
