Appearance of the Dancer

Holdingout coach 1

The dancer is a man with pink skin (different from many of the other dancers, who are usually white). He wears a hot pink gladiator helmet, gold armor straps, dark purple bottoms and a pink fluffy wristband and pink fluffy boot.


The background is in space with crazy animals (mostly cats) doing crazy things (such as laser shooting), and sometimes it turns in a rainbow with a yellow pony or a colorful tunnel, with watermelons hitting the dancer, who is on a steel rocket that's flying through the air.

Gold Moves 1, 3 and 4: Pull both hands away from your head.
