Here's What Happens When You Try To Dance With "Newsies" On Broadway

The Disney movie turned Broadway musical invited BuzzFeed to see how well we could keep up with the Newsies. (No, we have no problem embarrassing ourselves.)

The Broadway show started a campaign called "NEWSIES: Get Up and Go" to encourage healthy lifestyles among kids. Members of the cast teach actual dance sequences from the musical's show-stopping number "Seize the Day." We brought a few editors to the Nederlander Theatre to see how difficult it is to learn the dance, and have the hilariously awkward results in GIF form.


Then we had Iain Young, who does one heck of a jump.

Next is Jess LeProtto, a So You Think You Can Dance alum and a master of pirouettes.

This is our wonderful assistant dance captain, Julian DeGuzman.

And so the eight-step process begins!


JK we've got this.

Just in case you were wondering, we are spitting* on the ground and wiping it with our feet.

*We're not actually spitting because that would be gross.


Here's the final result of BuzzFeed editors attempting to dance to "Seize the Day."
