Dancing returns in Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, with new community-chosen inclusions and a whole lot of Gangnam Style. Old units have been revamped with new dances, and we’ve got the list of compatible dancers below. Check out how to make your units dance and cheer with some simple instructions, and keep scrolling to find what units were included in the festivities in this zerg-centric expansion.
Sadly, the Terrans will still shoot a dancing zergling. Check out Game Front’s Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm game guide to lead your armies to victory.

How to Make Units Dance & Cheer
Select the desired units, open the console with ENTER and type /dance or /cheer. It’s that simple.
These functions only work with a handful of units. Check out the list below for the full list.
The animations for many of these dances are believed from Warcraft 3. Each unit has their own dance, and several feature two dances.
Thanks to Youtube user kaikulu for the dancing demonstration.
Community dances were added to Heart of the Swarm, including Gangnam Style for one unit per race.
