World’s Best Dancers Interpret Popular PlayStation Genres
These moves take victory dances to a whole new level
Dancing has numerous benefits for the human body. Improved flexibility and balance, stronger bones and muscles, and increased endurance and agility are all well known advantages that occur as a result of dance. Since the beginning of time, dancing has also been used as a means of celebration, making it no surprise that so many athletes perform a victory dance after making a goal or scoring points for their team. A question to consider, however, is how does one celebrate scoring points when playing video games? PlayStation has come up with an intriguing answer.
Show Us Your Victory Dance is a new initiative created by PlayStation that pays tribute to gaming. The company teamed up with The New York City Ballet to produce a series of videos featuring some of the world’s best dancers showing off their victory moves after scoring goals, dunking a basket, collecting money, and even launching a grenade. The company urges users to share the videos with your friends after achieving a victory in a game.
In addition, Playstation has implemented a Victory Dance Contest that calls for gamers to create their own videos. To enter, participants need only upload a photo or video of their victory dance to Instagram and include the hashtag “PS4DanceContest.” Winners will be selected in four periods: the first ended on November 17th, but the three remaining deadlines are December 1st, December 5th, and December 12th at 11:59pm on each date. During each period, two photos and two videos will be chosen to win a PS4 for themselves, and a friend. Judging is based on 25% Humor, 25% Creativity, and 50% Enthusiasm.
You don’t have to be a world famous athlete or a member of The NYC Ballet to perform the world’s greatest victory dance, so get started already!
