Hands down, one of the best parts of the Overwatch Anniversary Event is the new dance emotes which gives each hero a chance to show off their sweet moves. The desire to just thrown down arms and come together with the smooth science of dance has prompted some players—okay a lot of players—to set up custom dance party rooms.

According to a report by Kotaku, the amount of custom game matches set in smaller stages with infinite health modifiers have increased significantly since the start of the Anniversary Event yesterday. The reason? These are all custom dance party rooms.
There are occasions when people apparently try to initiate fights in these dance rooms, but most players who join the party are content to just hang out, chat, dance, and do other kind of e-socializing. Some players even play music over the chat channels leading to particularly cool moments, like the Sombra dance video (seen above).
I tried to check out one of the dance parties up and operating but the only character I have a dance emote for is Torbjorn who dances… just okay. Look, I'm just saying there are good dancers (Symmetra, Lucio, Roadhog) and less good dancers (Reaper I'm looking at you).
You can try to join your own Overwatch dance party through the Find Game option in the Arcade mode. A quick search for 'party' is usually all it takes to get a full list of rooms looking for funky players trying to get down with their bad selves.
