Based on moves from Fortnite: the computer game which has taken the world by storm, David Lloyd is encouraging kids and teens to swap their controllers for choreography and take part in ‘Emote Royale,’ a unique workout which is dedicated to learning the dance moves from Fortnite.lossing’ and ‘taking the L’ are just a few of the funky moves to be included in this brand-spanking-new exercise class sweeping across select David Lloyd clubs this autumn. Following recent research which reveals 56% of parents worried about their kids spending 2 hours and 15 minutes every day playing computer games throughout summer, it seemed like the perfect time to take action.

And the classes are designed to be the perfect pace to keep kids aged five years old upwards entertained whilst being active. The victory dances that players use to celebrate within the Fortnite game – known as emotes – have become so popular that everyone from footballers to film stars have been trying them in the real world. France’s Antoine Griezmann has ‘taken the L’ in his goal celebrations and Will Smith and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown have been caught on camera doing the ‘floss’.

David Lloyd Clubs introduces the ‘Emote Royale’ dance class. Inspired by the popular computer game Fortnite, children learn popular dances such as ‘the floss’, ‘orange justice’ and ‘take the L’.

A spokesperson for David Lloyd Clubs says, “We know that kids – and some parents – are huge fans of the Fortnite game, but excessive screen time can pose a problem for kids, meaning they’re not as active as they should be. We’re always keen to introduce inventive classes to our varied timetables and the ‘Emote Royale’ class has been developed by kids, for kids, to help keep everyone active this summer and bring the popular computer game to life in a fun, active and original way.”

On arrival to the class, a Fortnite-themed soundtrack plays and participants begin to tackle 12 dance moves inspired by the popular game. Starting with the easiest moves – the class evolves to help kids learn the notoriously difficult ‘floss’ and ‘robot’ dances.

Once each one has been perfected, the class performs a routine of all 12 moves together and even warms down with dances from the game.

The Emote Royale classes will be added to select DL Kids timetables across the country including Manchester Trafford, Manchester North and Leeds.
