We can all use a little fun from time to time and what better way to lead us into the weekend than with some Star Wars themed dancing videos!
No, I’m not joking! Therapy through dance and movement can not only improve strength, flexibility and coordination but it can also promote positive emotional, social and cognitive health. According to board-certified dance/movement therapist, Katie Bohn “dance is a creative art psychotherapy that utilizes movement and dance to support the physical, intellectual, and emotional health of an individual.”
Now, I’m not saying that a “Twerking Stormtrooper” or a “Star Wars themed 80’s movie parody” will save the day but…it couldn’t hurt! C’mon, now – your lack of dance enthusiasm disturbs me!
Check out some of our favorite videos.
STORMTROOPER TWERK! The Original Dancing Stormtroopers
This is where this all began with me! Whenever I need to put a smile on my face, THIS is my go to Star Wars fandom “pick me up”.
Darth Vader and Stormtroopers dance to Michael Jackson at Disney’s Star Wars Weekends
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see the show when my family and I vacationed at Disney World! This would have blown my daughters away, especially my oldest who is a Darth Vader fan!
Father and Son Dance-Off – Robot Chicken
When it comes to Star Wars parody, Robot Chicken is the clear winner having the funniest and connect produced. They have even had many of the original actors from the saga voice the characters on their show including Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Get out there and create your own “dance off” with your friends!
ForceLoose – Star Wars Footloose Parody
I know, I know. The 80’s had some “cheesy” movies but they also had some of the best fun! One of those movies was the 1984 film, “Footloose”. This parody starring Kylo Ren shows the fallen Ben dance away his own “teenage angst” like that of the 80’s film’s lead actor, “Ren”. Find your own abandoned warehouse and dance away your anger!
Kinect Star Wars: Galactic Dance Off – Ghost ‘n’ Stuff
I missed out on the Kinect craze with my Wii and I wish I hadn’t – This looks like so much fun! What could be better than dancing along with your favorite Star Wars characters. I know he did the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs but, who knew Han Solo had moves like this! I know what you’re thinking, “You could buy the game now and try it out?” I think I’ve disappointed my wife enough with my nerd-ness…

Back to Disney… These shows look like such amazing fun! The production and the dancers are amazing. That said, you won’t catch me trying to keep up with these characters! I don’t have the Force in me like they do and, I embarrass myself enough on our weekly Star Wars Reporter PODCAST already!
EPIC STAR WARS DANCE BATTLE (The Floors Awaken)
THIS is the other video that really gets my FANDOM on! I absolutely love the dance-off between characters from the Empire and those from the Rebels- especially the dancing Padme’s! Dance, you will!
Remember to keep moving and stay healthy in these difficult times and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
