Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Stranger Things Kids Dance Battle It Out With Jimmy Fallon
Who: Stranger Things stars Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp and Finn Wolfhard
Why we chose them: If you never thought you’d be taking dance lessons from a kid, listen up. The guys of Stranger Things, Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Noah Schnapp (Will) and Finn Wolfhard (Mike), have some things to teach you.
The four on-screen BFFs stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote the super-popular Netflix series, Stranger Things 2, and they rocked Jimmy’s dance battle segment. Using a random name generator, each kid interpreted a never-before-seen Stranger Things-themed dance move—with prompts like “Toastin’ Waffles” and “Breaking Through the Goo.”
Finn showed us the most rock ‘n roll way to make waffles; Gaten did an amazing pantomime of trying to find his way using a possessed flashlight, while also throwing in some MJ-esque moves; Noah fixed a broken ’80s TV with some aggressive interpretive dance; and Caleb broke through “the goo” with some very smooth moves … and looked pretty dapper doing it!
To top it off, the kids and Jimmy busted out a group dance they called, “The Upside Get-Down.” YAAAS!
Fun fact: The guys aren’t the only ones with a hidden talent. Stranger Things character Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, recapped Stranger Things with an epic rap.
