Dallas ISD teacher spreads joy of dance in New York City (video)


On a trip this summer, Scot Pankey found his New York groove by asking people to dance with him. The resulting video shows him dancing with strangers to the Bee Gee’s “You Should Be Dancing.”

Pankey, a teacher at Dallas ISD’s A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School, became an Internet sensation in January along with his students when a video they created at the school went viral. In it, Pankey danced with students to “Uptown Funk.” One particular upload of the video has surpassed 13 million views on YouTube.
