News   Video: The Sharks and The Jets Dance Together! Hamilton's Jon Rua Re-Imagines the Gym Scene
 
Jon Rua, currently in the Broadway ensemble of Hamilton, has re-imagined the famous "Dance at the Gym" from West Side Story. Choreographed to Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' chart-topping hit "Blurred Lines," the dance takes a look at what would happen if the rival gangs, the Sharks and the Jets, actually danced together rather than fighting.

Some of the actors featured alongside Rua, who also performs in the video, include Ali Ewoldt from The King and I, Kyle Harris from Stitchers, Adesola Osakalumi Fela and Voltaire Wade-Green from Hamilton.

Watch the video below:

The video is choreographed, directed and produced by Rua, with filming and editing by Curtis Holbrook (If/Then). 

West Side story was last seen on Broadway in 2009. It features a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
