Calling all Harry Potter fans!

One high school dance team recently performed a Harry Potter-themed routine for their school's homecoming assembly. And let's just say we think J.K. Rowling herself would give it a standing ovation.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, the PAC Dance Team from Walden Grove High School in Arizona showcases their incredible talent through a series of choreographed dances all inspired by scenes from Harry Potter films. In one part, for example, a dancer playing Harry Potter dons the Sorting Hat and is placed into Gryffindor as a voiceover from the movie plays through the speakers. Afterward, the team breaks into a dance set to Flo Rida's "My House."


There's also a part dedicated to Voldemort, where more dancers in all-black costumes surround the dancer playing the Dark Lord. But before you know it, the Hogwarts crew is back, and Harry, Ron, and Hermoine are now at the forefront of a dance battle.

Near the end, Harry and Voldemort duke it out as they dance to the music and, in an epic finale, Harry rises from the dead to finally defeat the enemy. 

The high-energy, wildly impressive performance has now reached more than 2 million views on YouTube, with people flooding the comments section with praise. 

"Um can you get the moving truck? I need to get to this school desperately," one person writes.

"A welcome reminder of the enormous talent and creativity possessed by the world's youth. Bravo for the incredible performance and [the] inspiring example set by these students! I tip my sorting hat to all of you!!" another writes. 

Last year, the PAC Dance Team went viral for their Wizard of Oz-themed dance and they even landed themselves a spot on America's Got Talent season 13.

And so far, this school year is off to a good start, too: 

Needless to say, you'll want to watch this routine over and over again. Check it all out below:
