Mario Bros Characters Team Up For Epic Video Game Dance Routine

A dance group performs while dressed as Mario characters: Mario, Toad, Luigi, Wario, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi

Dancing is such a beautiful art form. Through dance, some of the most intense emotions, both good and bad, can be expressed in ways that are difficult to do otherwise. All of this to say, if you’ve got the skills needed to dance, well, why not choose to be silly sometimes? That’s certainly what this dance group did when they took some inspiration from the Mario Bros video game franchise. Best of all, they took their amazing performance to a competition called DanceStar!

DanceStar is known for holding world-wide competitions that are judged by professionals —in other words, they’re a pretty big deal. Still, this talented group, Danca De Rua, are able to take the stage like it’s nothing, all while dressed exactly like Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and more. The performance starts with the theme we all know and love. As you can imagine, the crowd immediately goes wild!

Cheers from the crowd continue as the music shifts to the Underground Theme. But the dancers take things up another notch when Bowser’s theme starts to play! In turn, the crowd cheers louder than before, especially when Princess Peach and Bowser himself join in on the fun.

How incredible are those dancers? It goes to show that, sometimes, the silliest dance performance is exactly what someone needs. And considering the fact that the above clip of this performance has over 26 million views and counting, it’s safe to say that there are lots of people who would agree.

“Just cried over this,” one person in the comments admits, “I don’t even know why.”

“I cannot tell u how many times I watched this over and over again,” another shares.
