An Arizona high school dance team has charmed (ahem) millions with their truly magical Harry Potter-inspired dance performance — and Fleur Delacour would be relieved to know that it’s not to the tune of any Celestina Warbeck hits.
Last month, the PAC Dance Team and Advanced Dance at Walden Grove High School in Sahuarita, Arizona put on quite a show at their annual homecoming assembly.
The large dance troupe performed a six-and-a-half minute act inspired by the Harry Potter universe, complete with costumes, set pieces, props — and, unexpectedly enough, hits by Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj.

Inspired: Several of the dancers dressed up as specific characters, while the rest wore robes
The group performed the routine at a homecoming assembly in September while classmates watched with rapt attention.
It was choreographed by their coach, Kristi Lopez.
As the piece opens, a dancer playing Harry Potter sits in a small nook under a set of white stairs, which is on wheels in the middle of the gym floor.
Dialogue from the first Potter films plays, as Hagrid tells the then 11-year-old he is a wizard, and he reads his letter from Hogwarts.
As the famous song from the opening of the films plays, dancers dressed as Ron and Hermione come to get him, and the stairs are whisked off the gym floor.
More dancers, all dressed in Hogwarts robes, come out. They dance by with a cut-out piece of the Hogwarts Express and then twirl out onto the floor.
