Only recently the very talented Jenna Ortega of Wednesday gave birth to a ballet that in a few days is gone viral and has been replicated far and wide on major social media. Lady Gaga herself has made it not only a content re-shared by millions of users but also numerous television programs they resumed the choreography re-adapting and adjusting it when necessary.
Although this is one of the most striking and memorable examples, it is certainly not the first and before this many other actors have managed to give us notable performances. Today we decided to bring you back those that are almost impossible for us to forget.
From Wednesday at The Umbrella Academy, here are the best ballets from TV series
1) The Umbrella Academy
Let’s start with one of the most popular TV series of recent years, The Umbrella Academy. The Netflix production had already announced a small musical curtain with “I Think We’re Alone Nowstraight into season 1, but the very memorable moment that introduced us an iconic ballet we find it in the first episode of the third season.
It’s right on the notes of Footloose that the protagonists launch themselves into a very special dance challenge. The mastermind behind all this? Obviously Diego, David Castañeda.
For many a little cringe, this moment is instead absolutely well done and perfectly in line with a series that has absolutely nothing “normal”.
We then move on to talking directly about Wednesday, because also helped by social networks such as Tik Tok has allowed the iconic ballet designed by the talented Ortega herself to become truly viral and replicated all over the world and in all sorts of ways.
The ballet, choreographed to the song Goo goo muck of the The Cramps it involves four movements: swinging the arms behind the back as if wearing a cloak, waving the hands as a “mano” would, then pounding the shoulders with clenched fists and finally raising one arm and then the other as in a flamenco dance.
In short, Wednesday is now placed on the podium, who will beat her in the next few years? Maybe the same series in a new season?
3) How I Met Your Mother
Wednesday doesn’t have the best ballet
While Wednesday’s ballet is iconic and viral, one of the best ever nelle serie tv per me rimane “Nothing Suits me Like a Suit” di How I Met Your Mother.
Craig Thomas and Carter Bays’ sitcom has given us truly memorable moments over the seasons and years, however the one in whichthe Barneys sing this song it remains one of the finest of all the episodes. The choreography, which involves not only the cast but also passers-by, recalls a musical, without ever letting us forget, however, that its protagonist is the self-centered Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), who with his dress has built a character among prettiest ever.
4) The Office
The Office remains one of the most watched TV series of all time and for this reason I had to include the iconic dance scene at Jim and Pam’s wedding.
In particular I am referring to the American version of the series of the same name created by Ricky Gervais, and to the episode which sees the events at the center the dance scene that Dunder Mifflin employees (among them obviously Michael, Steve Carell) give to Pam and Jim at their wedding.
If the scenes from The Office we will never forget they are really numerous we cannot fail to include in those also the icon scene of the ballet.
If the other scenes mentioned so far were original and created specifically for the TV series in question, Scrubs presents us with a sort of parody homage to one of the most famous musicals ever “The West Side Story”.
The reinterpreted and adapted interpretation of this curtain is based on the rivalry between the hospital trainees. “You see, surgical and medical interns are kind of like two rival gangs,” he says Braff’s character at the start.
The scene then sees the blue-clad medical interns and the green-clad surgical interns dancing towards each other down the corridor in a truly iconic choreography.
After Wednesday another Netflix TV series
That Netflix likes to dare with choreography and ballet is now well known, in fact, even Lucifer gives us a dance scene that has remained well etched in our memory.
In short, during the episodes the protagonist juggled numerous dance scenes, sometimes accompanied from piano and amusing entr’actes.
However, the moment that we best remember and in which Lucifer (Tom Ellis) really gave his best was entered among those most memorable of the entire series. In fact, I am referring to the tenth episode of the fifth season, in which the protagonists begin to dance in a football field while singing Another One Bites the Dust of Queen.
I could not conclude this list with a TV series that has made music and its choreography a real hallmark (here you can find the best performances).
Although it is difficult to select just one from the vast list, I think the best performance is the one performed in the second season, with the song “Toxic”.
The scene develops when The Glee Club once again has the opportunity to perform for the school and once again they take advantage of it to sell your sex appeal. Instead of the blatant sexuality of “Push It” (another memorable scene), “Toxic” is a little more restrained in its sexuality but truly iconic.
