The machines will rise and lead a revolution of dance

This LEGO robo-figure from builder Iggs has way more style than any machine revolutionary before them! Not all robots dream of overthrowing humanity through violence — sometimes they want to express themselves through dance. The robo-dancer here is preparing to kick things off with the Dance Dance Revolution at their local arcade. The dancer features some really nice color blocking, and I’m loving the bright colors and how they stand out against the black pieces. The limbs have lots of flow and unique shaping, giving the figure a sense of being highly flexible for some crazy dance moves. This is one of those figures where I just want to keep looking at it to discover all the cool parts hiding in plain sight.

The Dance Dance Revolution

A percussive performance in pinks and purples

LEGO builder Milan Sekiz is strutting their stuff on this overly-colorful dance floor. And each piece of this build feels right at home in this boogie-filled alien world. The speakers have a cartoonish quality, emphasized by the floating music notes surrounding them. The array of otherworldly refreshments to the left is ready to reinvigorate any worn-down dancer, with the spilled drink added as a great touch. Even the small table on the right feels right at home with its star-shaped flowers and bubbly curves at its base. But the highlight has got to be the character construction that’s absolutely out of this world. Ms. Purple’s medusa-like hair is groovy, and the gold accents and lavender heels really set her outfit off. And take note of the dynamite DJ in the back with their noodle-y arms on the ones and twos. Overall, this build is throwing some serious Creator set vibes, and I love it!

Hold me closer, tiny dancer

Sometimes all it takes is a dynamic pose to elevate a simple build into a work of multi-sensory art. This build of a dancer by Swedish LEGO Masters contestant Rickard Stensby makes me feel many things across different senses. I instantly get the rush of awe and emotion one experiences when watching a live ballet performance from just looking at this build. The figure is in a perpetual pirouette with outstretched arms and legs, along with an upward-facing body. Rickard emulates the spinning motion with a functional rotating base, adding to the energy of this sculpture. In addition, the twirling dress contains intricate building techniques to capture the conical shape with creases.

A picturesque portrait

We see a lot of LEGO models that attempt to create very life-like scenes seen through an almost documentarian lens. Rarer, however, is the build that takes a more artistic approach, such as this pair of ballet dancers by¬†Nicolas PICOT. Using a flat style with lots of curved bricks across a few planes of depth, Nicolas has emulated a photograph, and the dancers’ frozen-in-motion pose is conveyed perfectly.

Imperial Dancetroopers take pointe

Sometimes all a Stormtrooper wants to do is to dance! Laurene Johnsone brings us a little-seen side of the life on an Imperial soldier — the ballet classes.

Storm Trooper Dance of the Little Swan's

I like the four clone troopers practising their pointe, but all eyes in the studio are surely on the central pair practising their Swan Lake. This is wonderfully daft — I love it.

Dance ’til you drop

Fresh from his win in our Bricknado contest and rapidly becoming on of my favorite brick sculptors, simplybrickingit has put together this wonderfully engaging and kinetic pair of Jive dancers. Such is the interaction between these two figures that – according to the builder – they cannot stand up alone, but counterbalance one another when connected at the hand.
