This is an entertaining resource. I like the idea of the 'mix and match' dancing, and it illustrates how easily setting and music can alter the mood of performance. I could not figure out how to pull up back up dancers. The only thing that I'd add is a costume change option! I'd love to switch up the clothing and see how that impacts the movement. Great idea, fun execution. I will direct students to this for smiles and perhaps even a little movement inspiration.

This is a completely entertaining site!  We use this to get students dancing and excited in the classroom.  Very easy to use and it generates lots of smiles.
