Feeling lacklustre as you start the new year? Then why not take a leaf out of teacher Ron Clark’s book and star in a viral dance video in your first week back?

Mr Clark, a 2016 Global Teacher Prize finalist and founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, US, has garnered 3.2 million views after pulling some funky moves with his pupils in the film pasted to the school’s Facebook page.

The film shows Mr Clark – whose upbeat maths teaching techniques have already brought him fame – dancing to rapper DLOW’s Bet You Can’t Do it Like Me.
