The more dance moves that are added to Fortnite the more we see them in mainstream society, and now there's a dance class dedicated to teaching them.
Fortnite recently celebrated its first birthday. That's right, no matter how long you might think that the incredibly popular battle royale style game has been around—as it feels like years—a little more than 12 months ago, none of us knew what it was. Now, it is available on every gaming platform imaginable and it is basically unavoidable.
For those of you who have, by some miracle, managed to avoid the bulk of the Fortnite phenomenon, the game is not all about parachuting down onto an island and opening fire until you are the only one of the 100 players left alive. In fact, one of the main ways Fortnite has managed to seep into mainstream society is via the dances the avatars can perform to celebrate in-game.
You have likely seen kids flossing everywhere you turn, maybe without even realizing. If you take a look at the video clip below, you'll soon be educated on what flossing is along with a number of other Fortnite dance moves. That's because the video is an example of a real-life Fortnite dance class. Yes, they exist and are being run by a chain of leisure centers in the UK for Fortnite-obsessed kids.
As reported by Business Insider, the classes are taking place in David Lloyd clubs up and down the UK and are a part of the chain's DL Kids program. Memberships cost £55 (a little more than $71) per month and for that, your kids can learn to floss, hype, and maybe even perfect orange justice. "Once each move has been perfected, the class performs a routine of all 12 moves together and even warms down with dances from the game," David Lloyd clubs revealed via a press release.
One of these days, someone is going to say that Fortnite's reach has gotten too far, but today is not that day. If anything, Fortnite dance classes for kids have to really be viewed as a good thing. If the children in the video above weren't at a Fortnite dance class then they would likely be sat at home playing Fortnite. We know which one we'd prefer for our kids.
