Ballet Dancers Shred Their Way Through Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Will you do the Fandango?

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Queen's slow burn of an anthem "Bohemian Rhapsody." To honor the epic number, English National Ballet's lead principal Erina Takahashi and first soloist James Forbat performed an epic duet that truly captures what it feels like to be just a poor boy from a poor family. 

With poise and drama, Takahashi and Forbat leap, twirl and bend their way through the six-minute rock opera, yielding a performance that would put even Wayne and Garth to shame. It's so legit, Queen's official channel even uploaded the video to YouTube. Check it out above. Try not to head bang so much you miss the good parts.
