    Fortnite is probably the most popular video game of all time. By combining in-game Emotes which are basically little dance moves that are derived from disco, cultural and pop culture, the game has also moved beyond its traditional "Gamers" audience and into mass audience.

    Just about every school aged kid knows about Fortnite. Even those that have yet to download the game onto their phones, probably knows a dance move, sorry EMOTE, or two from it!

    Including a Fortnite dance competition into a kids party is a winning formula and will keep your young party guests entertained for hours of fun! Plus, you're gonna earn some serious street cred as the coolest parents on the block.

    What you need to prepare:

    1. Dance Move (EMOTE) tokens that kids will pick out of the box.

    (Right click on image above, save image, print and glue onto a piece of cardboard and cut along the token lines to create tokens)

    2. A container, like a shoebox or bowl, to hold the tokens

    3. Download Dances from Fortnite IOS or Dances from Fortnite Android

    Download Dances from Fortnite from app store or play store

    How you run the dance competition

    1. Divide the party guests into 2 groups. Party hosts or parents can be the judges.​

    2. The two teams flip a coin to see who gets to pick the token. The winning team of the coin toss picks the token, while the losing team gets to dance first.

    3. Using the Dances from Fortnite App, Cast it on to your TV using Airplay (via apple tv or other generic HDMI cast dongle) or Chromecast.

    4. Everyone gets to practice the dance move.

    4. After everyone's had their practice, the two teams then send a team member to the stage to represent their team and compete. 

    5. Judges sound a horn, buzzer or whistle to initiate the dance off. Both competitors turn with their backs to the TV, on either side of the TV so the crowd and judges can compare the competitors' dance moves with that displayed on the TV. The crowd is encouraged to cheer, clap and the competitors dance for 15 seconds.

    6. Judges vote for the winner by pointing to them. If its a tie, ask the remaining spectators to vote. If it's still a tie, then pick a new dance as tie break!

    7. Repeat until every one on the team has had a turn.

    8. If there is an uneven number of team members, it's best to agree on a total number of dances instead.

    9. The team with the most victories win!​

    10. HAVE FUN!​
