A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School - Uptown Funk Dance
Watch the amazing viral video.
A video of a school teacher who made up a dance routine for 'Uptown Funk' with his entire school has gone viral.
More than two million people have watched the video, which begins with A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School gym teacher Scot Panicky dancing by himself before incorporating students from the school.
"I heard the song before Christmas and fell in love with it," he told the Dallas Morning News. “We are a project-based school — there are only two in the Metroplex — and that means you give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions. They had three weeks to work on it, then present as a group what they learned."
He added: "I told them, ‘I am not a dancer, but I’d love to do this and go on this journey with you, and we can all learn from it and have a good time."
