A new frenzy has now erupted on the Internet, instantly viral and spreading with tremendous speed a video of actress Jenna Ortega dancing in Tim Burton’s Wednesday series for Netflix.
Tim Burton’s series seems to have made everyone crazy. Some are trying to replicate the main character’s makeup, some are googling salons to dye their hair black and choose a new outfit in black and white, and some are trying to knock up Tik Toks recommendations by repeating the Wednesday Addams dance scene from episode four, “Chapter IV: Woe What a Night.”
Wednesday Addams Dance Scene
In the first video, a dance from the movie in its original form where Wednesday Addams dances to the punk band The Cramps’ song “Goo Goo Muck.” The choreography of the dance makes no sense, it’s just a set of dance moves, but the image of charming, young and insanely beautiful witch created by Jenn Ortega is simply mesmerizing, so it’s impossible to take your eyes off. She spins her head like a witch, enticing and dragging the hero along, to crazy rhythmic music.
Wednesday’s dance has already become as iconic as John Travolta and Uma Thurman’s famous Pulp Fiction dance.
Here’s what Jenna Ortega, who performed the role of Wednesday Addams and choreographed her character’s outstanding dance herself, had to say about how she came up with it.
In the fourth episode of the show, students at Nevermore Academy attend a ball called Rave’N. At one point, even Wednesday decides to set aside her unsociable nature and takes to the dance floor, giving off some fancy moves. Ortega admitted that she was very nervous while filming this scene, as she choreographed it herself and “quite obviously” she is “not a dancer or a choreographer.”
The actress also added that she was inspired by Susie Sue, Bob Fosse’s video for The Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Leza Lowitz, Denis Lavant and archive footage of gothic dancing from the 1980s.
By the way, the image of the girl with pigtails for the modern film was taken from the little heroine, also named Wednesday, from the old 1964-1966 series The Adams Family, starring the giant John Astin. In the snippet shown, you can see how the little girl teaches the dullard Gomez Addams to dance. The movements of this dance were also used by Jenna Ortega in her choreography.
As we see, to create a cult dance, not enough to croak in front of the camera in Tik-Tok, you need to know a lot and work very hard before you can get any results. I hope that you have been useful materials I have selected.
Well, now we will show you how you can learn it: just watch the video dance a million times, or go to the views of the Web and look at the dancers who have already figured out the dance moves and even give hints with emoji.
