'Overwatch' Anniversary Dance Emotes: Watch them all right here

Source: Blizzard Entertainment

The best way to celebrate Overwatch's new Anniversary event is to bust a move — and now, you can do that within the game itself using a set of brand-new dance emotes. Unlike other event cosmetics that usually only come to a select few characters, every single character in the Overwatch roster has a unique dance emote.

If you have to wait until after work to actually dive in and play for yourself, don't worry: We've got you covered. There's a nice video on YouTube uploaded by Rem Villiers that shows every single one, but we've broken them all down into GIF form below if there's a specific dance emote you want to see.

Here's every new Overwatch dance emote in the Anniversary update.
