It’s not odd to see guests often dancing through our Disney Parks. The parks just have that effect on many people (including me). That’s one reason I was excited to hear the Jabbawockeez dance crew was on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. Since I’ve tried to dance in previous videos at Raglan Road and also with Barbara, the dancing cast member at Magic Kingdom Park, I jumped at the chance to learn from these world-famous pros.
The Jabbawockeez, a name inspired from the pages of Lewis Carroll’s classic literature, exploded onto the scene by winning the first season of MTV’s dance competition series, “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Known for their signature, expressionless mime masks and high-energy moves, the Jabbawockeez star in stage shows in Australia and Las Vegas (an original show called “MÜS.I.C”), and have guest-starred on shows like the dance-driven comedy series “Shake It Up” on Disney Channel and “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC-TV.
During their visit, I asked the guys to stop by the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot for a quick (and unmasked) interview. I also asked Mickey Mouse to drop by and showcase a few of his newest hip-hop moves. And as you’d probably expect, Mickey does some pretty magical dancing. Take a look and let us know in the comments what you think of this all-star dance party. (Plus, give yourself some bonus points if you remember — like I do — the famous “Mickey Mouse Disco” record. To my delight, Mickey was kind enough to show me off-camera some of his famous disco steps. It’s good to know he still appreciates the classics.)
And keep an eye out for Rob, our always-concerned bystander. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him. I guess he’s been practicing his dance moves as well.
