Here’s everybody’s chance to catch this week’s PEOPLE cover couple in action – and check out the moves Zac Efron makes with Vanessa Hudgens.

The Disney Channel is airing a special dance-along version of High School Musical 2 on Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Efron, Hudgens and company – Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Olesya Rulin, KayCee Stroh, Chris Warren, Jr. and Ryne Sanborn – will host the movie and instruct viewers on how to imitate their dances during the opening and closing numbers, as well as for “What Time Is It” and “All For One.”

“Our viewers made dance moves from the first movie iconic, and we’re pleased to once again provide them with an opportunity to learn the new dance moves from HSM2,” Disney Channel Worldwide senior VP Scott Garner said in a statement.

Those who log onto DisneyChannel.com can also find downloadable and printable instructions to the dance-along.

In its premiere broadcast last Friday, High School Musical 2, attracted 17.24 million viewers, making it single most-watched basic cable telecast in history.
