While taking on the role as red carpet host at the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday (April 25), Ariana DeBose introduced the first official trailer for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of West Side Story, in which she is set to play Anita.

The minute-and-a-half clip shares all the emotion-filled moments from the beloved classic, including tension between the Jets and the Sharks, the forbidden love between Maria (Rachel Zegler) and Tony (Ansel Elgort) — and, of course, the infectious choreography.

Fans also get a first listen into the emotional “Somewhere,” which is heard sung over the trailer.
