The Viral Wednesday Dance Was Improvised
Even people who haven’t watched the series know of the iconic Wednesday dance. The dance went viral on various social media platforms, and massive credit was given to Jenna Ortega for choreographing the dance. However, while speaking about the dance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Oretga mentioned she was only given two days to choreograph the dance. She said, “[Burton] was like, ‘I know you’ve got it. You’ve been working on it. I’m not even worried about it. I trust you.’ And I said, ‘Oh, yeah, you know, it’s all so good.'” That’s a lot of trust for the famous director to put in his cast, but it worked out beautifully. Ortega managed to pull off an impressive dance that stole the attention of audiences worldwide, and created an internet sensation to boot!
