Dancing with the Robots Video Contest

Nov 20, 2018

The excitement for Hour of Code (Dec. 3-9) is mounting! Dancing with the Stars may be over, but Dancing with the Robots has officially begun! In anticipation of’s creativity theme this year, we are asking you all to share your robot’s best dance moves with us on Twitter @WonderWorkshop with the hashtags #FunWithWonder and #HourOfCode. From now until the end of December, we will be watching for such dance party and music videos. On New Year’s Day, we will award our very own version of a mirrorball trophy — a one-of-a-kind mirrorball Dash!

(just you wait … photo coming)

What are we looking for? Well, we know that Dash and Cue have the moves and enjoy any STEAM endeavor, so you use your imagination to:

  • have one of the robots dance to your favorite song ( even created a Spotify playlist)
  • host a free-for-all robot dance fest with multiple robots
  • sync five robots to one device for a group dance
  • create a synchronized marching band with the xylophone accessory and Xylo app
  • add flair with unique costumes using the Building Brick Connectors for your performance
  • dance (and sing!) alongside your robots
  • show off your own best moves by dancing like a robot

There are endless possibilities! Take a look at some of our favorites that you’ve shared with us in the past. And bring on the dance party!
