Dance Party is an innovative coding tutorial made by Code.org for the Hour of Code. In less than an hour, students of any skill level will be able to choreograph and code wacky dance videos to some of the most famous songs on the planet.

 

The kick-off to what would become Dance Party began not with a bang but a whimper. A project manager approached me at my desk and said, "We think we want to do some kind of a dance activity for Hour of Code this year...but no one has any idea what that means." My responsibilities were to figure out what that meant, make it appeal to all ages, and build it quickly. To do this, I worked with our videographer and a couple of engineers. I was responsible for look and feel, UX/UI, and creating all the marketing collateral and web assets.

The challenge of Dance Party was working within the limitations. We found a lot of clever ways to work smarter rather than harder. Intelligent design choices, re-usable rigging, and rotoscoping popular dance moves saved us a ton of time. Dance Party is one of the most popular activities for Code.org and Hour of Code, second only to Minecraft.
