Some dancing units

Dancing and cheering are two functions present in the StarCraft II game engine.


Selecting units and entering "/dance" in chat causes the units to dance for three seconds. Units may have two dances. "/cheer" causes them to cheer. These may be emotes from Warcraft III's units.

Reapers, infestor, most mechanical units, and flying units do not dance or cheer.
