They were dancing, yeeeah!

Students at Fontbonne Hall Academy performed a funky rendition of the disco-drama that put Bay Ridge on the map, the 1977 film “Saturday Night Fever.”

More than a dozen teens with the drama club of the Shore Road school near 99th Street transported audiences to ’70s Southern Brooklyn with bell bottoms, slicked-back hair, and sets that infused elements of the nabe — including projections of storefronts and a handcrafted hunk of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Performances ran from May 5-7. The proceeds will go toward supporting the arts at the academy.
