In episode four, Woe What A Night, Wednesday proves she’s got some eccentric moves at her school’s Rave’N dance when The Cramps’ track 'Goo Goo Muck' began to play as the expressionless teen cut some serious shapes.
It was Ortega herself who came up with the dance routine, as she revealed in a recent behind-the-scenes video: “I actually felt really insecure about this. I choreographed that myself and I think it’s very obvious that I’m not a dancer or choreographer.”
She also took to Twitter to thank the artists who inspired her dance – “Thanks to Siouxsie Sioux, Bob Fosse’s Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Lene Lovich, Denis Lavant, and archival footage of goths dancing in clubs in the 80’s. Helped me out on this one.”
Wednesday is now available to watch on Netflix.
