Ballet Dancers Beautifully Reinterpret Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'


Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is an intricate song, filled with layers upon layers of powerful twists, turns, buildups, and, of course, wildly impressive vocals.

Chances are, you've heard it multiple times — in your local bar, cheers-ing over a pint, or at a sports event, screaming each line with your face paint-covered friends.

But have you ever seen it? 

In "Bohemian Rhapsody Reinterpreted," a video uploaded to YouTube to celebrate the song's 40th anniversary, English National Ballet members Erina Takahaski and James Forbat perform an exquisite dance, using their bodies to represent the beauty and power of the song.

Mamma mia!

"Whoever said ballet requires classical music is wrong," Nylon's Hayden Manders writes. "Classic rock pairs just as well."

The dancers' movements are just as effortless as the transitions in the song, making for a seamless, performance we can't stop watching.
