Here's another fun, quick video for your viewing pleasure!
This is a number called "Seize the Day" from the 1992 Disney film, Newsies! The plot revolves around the New York City newspaper boy strike that occurred in July of 1899. This is a decade before the likes of the High School Musical frenzy, and the movie wasn't a tremendous hit. But I think it's sweet, and that these young performers are incredibly talented.
I love this number because of the awesome acapella chorale opening, and the weird, "Thriller"-influenced choreography! Notice how well Christian Bale manages to hold his own in the dance section! Also starring in this movie is David Moscow. You may recognize him from his portrayal of young Josh (Tom Hanks as a boy) in the movie, Big.
