Dance emotes in the Overwatch Anniversary event are not surprising, but here are the most likely new ones. Now that the event is less than a week away, some skins have been leaked, and one has been revealed. But emotes are rarely shown off before the event even starts. That's what makes Overwatch's announcement tweet so surprising. It shows off what looks like a brand new Roadhog dance.

As a post on Reddit points out, this emote is different than Roadhog's existing dance emote. This new dance emote will likely come out with the new Anniversary event. If it does, it likely won't be the only one.

Since a Roadhog dance emote was shown off on the Overwatch twitter announcing the event, it is very likely it will be on of this event's emotes.

2. Sigma

Sigma is almost certain to get his first dance emote.

Sigma was released after last year's Anniversary event, he still has no dance emote. Since Sigma isn't new anymore, there's almost no chance that Blizzard hasn't made him one for this Anniversary event.

3. Echo

Although Echo is still fairly new to the game, she is certain to have her first event unlocks, one of which will probably be a dance emote.

4. Junkrat

Roadhog and Junkrat are a dynamic duo, it's unlikely only one of them would get a new dance emote.

Roadhog's old dance emote was designed to line up with Junkrat's and they would high five each other in the middle of it. If Roadhog is getting a new solo dance emote, chances are Junkrat will be too.
