It’s no secret that dances from Epic Games’ Fortnite have become ubiquitous in pop culture, seen everywhere from sporting events to movie premieres. Now fans can take their love of Fortnite dances to a new level, by learning how to do them accurately in the wild.
According to a new report from BBC Radio Bristol, there are Fortnite dance classes where patrons can learn dances like the ‘Hype’ and the ‘Orange Justice.’ Granted, most of the attendees of these classes are apparently young kids, but even so it’s one of the weirder crossovers for Fortnite.
Given that these kids (and some adults) see Fortnite’s dances so often and see celebrities and athletes reenacting them on live TV, it only makes sense that they would want to learn. But even then, paying to learn dances from a video game is really strange. Maybe not as strange as parents paying for their kids to get Fortnite tutoring, but still not something one sees every day.
Still, it speaks to the popularity of Fortnite that someone could start a business teaching dances from the battle royale game and people would actually attend. We wouldn’t be surprised if even more Fortnite dance classes popped up trying to capitalize on the game’s popularity, for as long as it lasts.
Inside the Fortnite world, Epic Games is currently teasing some big events for Season 6 with the appearance of a mysterious purple cube. What the cube actually does or what it leads to are unclear but just like the rifts opening in Season 4, most fans believe this is Epic setting the groundwork for Season 6.
On top of that, Epic is trying its best to balance the battle royale game in the face of complaints that it relies too much on fast-firing, high ammo count SMGs and little else. Since the introduction of the drum gun and the SMGs, there has been little counterplay and the importance of building has been lessened dramatically.
Epic is aware of it but its goals in terms of making the game accessible to everyone are not entirely clear. Whatever the case may be the game is still making tons of money, both for Epic Games and other businesses that are trying to capitalize on Fortnite’s popularity.
Fortnite Battle Royale is available now for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and iOS.
