This man interpretative dances to Mozart and makes us amazingly happy

Latané Simmons, a man who was house-sitting for a friend, happened upon her collection of Mozart records and decided to make her a very special video.

In his own words: "The video was inspired by a dear friend. When she was younger and the other girls emulated their favourite Disney princesses, she would dress up like famous classical composers instead."

His chosen medium for this gift? Interpretative dance, with a breakfast theme. And what better soundtrack than the first movement of Mozart's clarinet concerto?

It contains such incredible moves as this:

Turning a morning stretch into something altogether more artful.




And this:

Which is, err, road rage in dance form?




Also this:

Haunting.
