It was the meme that launched a thousand Firebolts—or something along those lines.
It all started at MCM London Comic Con, when Yorkshire, England-based YouTuber (and trained dancer!) Kelsey Ellison’s spontaneous voguing was captured on video by friend and fellow U.K. YouTuber Connie Glynn. Ellison, a diehard Harry Potter fan, has posted dance videos and Potter-focused videos before, but this clip marks the first time she’s combined her two passions. Clearly, Hermione used that Time-Turner to sneak in lots of dance practice because she SLAYS—and we don’t mean basilisks.

Bowing to popular demand, Ellison then made a sequel clip, complete with perfectly Potter-tastic soundtrack.
Understandably, the Internet proceeded to freak out in the best way possible, turning #DancingHermione into a phenomenon on Twitter. And that, my friends, is where the real fun begins. Behold, a few of the most House Cup-worthy reactions to and remixes of the magical, mystical moves we never knew we needed until now.
