A New Zealand high school has gone viral after sharing its colorful and energetic 90s dance routine online.

The group centered their dance routine around the hit 90s TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

The dance routine, inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, saw students dress in bright colors and denim during the Hip Hop International New Zealand MegaSchools Street Dance Competition.
This was done with appropriate fashion choices including bright and baggy jackets, denim jeans and white sneakers.
The video published on the school’s website Facebook page garnered over 300,000 views and nearly 6,000 shares.
The Rewa All Stars were taking part in the Hip Hop International New Zealand MegaSchools Street Dance Competition when the footage was captured.
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was a popular American television show of the 90s that kick-started Will Smith’s long career in showbiz.
The creative students used The Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme music to visualize their dance routine.
The lyrics: “this is the story of how my life was turned upside down”, shows twelve of the students falling to the ground and spinning.
The creativity continues with b-ball shots and a few guys “who started causing trouble in the neighborhood” getting into a fake argument.
The dance routine ends with Will Smith’s cat impersonator completing his role as a prince, sitting on his “Bel Air Jet” – created from the bodies of his castmates.

Their inspired performance failed to land them the top prize, but Mewa secured a second place out of the 14 schools that competed.
Their creative routine “Fresh Outta Rewa” won the award for most outstanding performance.
