Video: Deerhoof's Milk Man Ballet - "Milking"

Pitchfork posted last week about an awesome art performance that was recently put on by the North Haven Community School in North Haven, Maine. Students from elementary, middle, and high school developed a dance routine based on Deerhoof's album Milk Man! The school drama teacher Courtney Naliboff and choreographer Ken Jones collaborated with the band to adapt music for the project, but the music and dancing are actually performed live by the students themselves. (Deerhoof were actually in attendance, however.) Man, why didn't I ever have cool teachers like this in school?

Videos from the Milk Man Ballet are now up on YouTube and it's quite a sight to behold. Here are direct links to more of the songs:
