Dancing with the 80’s teen stars

After a few days of watching some classic 1980’s movies I decided it was time for another poll.   This poll has Scott Howard; The Wolf (Teen Wolf) vs Ronnie Miller (Can’t Buy Me Love).  It’s time for a dance off!  Can Ronnie Miller’s African Anteater Ritual match Scott Howard doing The Big Bad Wolf?
