Watch this wild medley of ‘Tarzan’ songs with BYU Vocal Point, ballroom dancers, and a former Cosmo the Cougar

BYU Vocal Point has got its groove on in a new medley composed of songs from the favorite Disney movie Tarzan. But the video doesn’t take place in a jungle—this time, Tarzan is in a museum.

In the video, the members of Vocal Point begin by playing the parts of janitors in a museum, mopping floors and dusting the walls before breaking out in song with the classic Phil Collins lyrics, “Put your faith in what you most believe in / Two worlds, one family” before coming across a statue of Tarzan that suddenly comes to life.

Tarzan is played by Grant Taylor, who was Cosmo the Cougar at Brigham Young University from 2016–2020, and he has the tricks to match as he somersaults and leaps through the air. The five-minute video loosely follows the story line of the movie as Tarzan meets Jane, who is played by dancer Emily Evans. But rather than carrying her through jungle vines, he swings her through the air in a series of impressive ballroom dance moves. Other ballroom dancers also join in the number before Tarzan and Jane go through the museum. Together, they observe the different exhibits, which come alive and are acted by members of BYU’s Living Legends.

Songs in the medley include “Two Worlds,” “Son of Man,” “Strangers Like Me,” “Trashin’ the Camp,” and “You’ll Be In My Heart.” Watch the video below.
