Dancify That!

Dynamic Dance Duos vs. The Internet.

Teams compete in taking bizarre videos from the internet and using them as inspiration for dance choreography. We all watch the video together. Teams create their dance. They perform. Then they are judged by comedians who know nothing about dance.

A dance show for people that don’t like dance shows and anyone who loves laughing, eating free snacks, sexy aerobics, and sing-a-longs.

Watch Video. Make Dance. Go for Gold.
