It's Time for a Good Old-Fashioned High School Dance Off

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost nine years (WUT) since Troy and Gabriella won our hearts in Disney Channel’s High School Musical. #Throwback to the epic hallway flash mobs, the intense basketball choreo, the emotional romance…ahh, such memories. But these days, the hallways of East High are serving a slightly different purpose.
Here’s the scoop: Dream team Scott Winn and Brenden Bytheway (aka Scott & Brendo, the guys who brought us the “Stormtrooper Twerk” and the “Harry Potter vs. Twilight Dance Battle“) were searching for a place to shoot their latest project, “High School Dance Battle: Geeks vs. Cool Kids.” HSM‘s old stomping grounds seemed a natural fit. But while this blast of nostalgia sure is lovely, it’s not the main reason we’re obsessed with this video. You guys, the dance is sooo good.
It should be no surprise: The man behind the moves is choreographer Jason Celaya, who collaborated with Scott & Brendo on “Stormtroopers” and “Harry Potter vs. Twilight.” He’s also responsible for “The World’s Largest Treadmill Dance,” so you know he does it big. To pump up the dance power even more, they’ve got Chachi Gonzales leading the cool kids and Jade Chynoweth repin’ the geeks. So, yeah, you know you want to watch this.
