Just for fun

All of the Best #DancingHermione Reactions

It was the meme that launched a thousand Firebolts—or something along those lines.


It all started at MCM London Comic Con, when Yorkshire, England-based YouTuber (and trained dancer!) Kelsey Ellison's spontaneous voguing was captured on video by friend and fellow U.K. YouTuber Connie Glynn. Ellison, a diehard Harry Potter fan, has posted dance videos and Potter-focused videos before, but this clip marks the first time she's combined her two passions. Clearly, Hermione used that Time-Turner to sneak in lots of dance practice because she SLAYS—and we don't mean basilisks.

Bowing to popular demand, Ellison then made a sequel clip, complete with perfectly Potter-tastic soundtrack.

Understandably, the Internet proceeded to freak out in the best way possible, turning #DancingHermione into a phenomenon on Twitter. And that, my friends, is where the real fun begins. Behold, a few of the most House Cup-worthy reactions to and remixes of the magical, mystical moves we never knew we needed until now.

    On June 22, National Ballet of Canada principal Xiao Nan Yu will retire from the stage after 22 years with the company. Originally from Dalian, China, Yu studied at the Shen Yang School of Dance and the Beijing Dance Academy before coming to Canada's National Ballet School at age 17. She joined the National Ballet of Canada less than two years later, and was promoted to principal in 2001.

    "She is a supreme dance actress with an innate ability to bring the audience into her world," says NBoC artistic director Karen Kain. "Nan has always brought such a calm confidence into the studio and has been a role model for so many dancers I will miss her generosity both inside the studio and out." We spoke with Yu as she prepared for her final week of performances. She opened up about her initial culture shock upon moving to Toronto, her thoughts on artistry and why she chose Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow as her final role.
