DALLAS – A video of a hip-shaking teacher in Dallas is going viral.

The video shows the teacher dancing around the school with his students to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”

According to the Dallas Morning NewsScot Pankey, a theater director at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School, decided to make this video the students’ first project of the new year.

“We are a project-based school — there are only two in the Metroplex — and that means you give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions. They had three weeks to work on it, then present as a group what they learned,” Pankey told the Dallas Morning News.

The video, which was shot by students, was completed in a single take.

“This is a great example of how a bunch of technology students let go of their fears, trusted their teacher and got down to Uptown Funk!!!” the YouTube description states.
