Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"Dance at the Gym" (Company of Oper Wuppertal in Germany, West Side Story)
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: It's always pretty refreshing to see something other than the Jerome Robbins choreography, but I've never seen it like this. There were most definitely some gasps watching who I assume are Riff and Graziella. Loved seeing the super sexy Anita (Sarah Bowden) and Bernardo get down around 1:35. Then dancing, sex, and violence came together, giving this West Side Story a wild and dangerous energy. Overall, I dug it.
