On TikTok, the challenge videos have already accumulated almost 15 billion views, showing the strong engagement of fans from different parts of the world. However, what few people know is that in order to create the choreography, Jenna Ortega, the actress who plays Wandinha, looked for references in different places.


One of the inspirations pointed out by the public was a scene from the 1964 series The Addams Family, where Wandinha appears dancing in her living room with Tropeço🇧🇷 Fortunately, the famous dance video is available on YouTube and can be seen in full by clicking here.

Another possible inspiration for Ortega’s steps is the musical “Sweet Charity” by Bob Fosse. In it, dancers perform their movements using the hips and sides of the body, promoting a peculiar and even funny movement.

Because it was shown on Broadway for some time, the musical also has some parts available on YouTube. You can compare the choreography with Wandinha’s dance below.
