A Furry dance may refer to either an organized events held at a furry convention (sometimes known as furry raves) for furry and non-furry attendees to dance to music, some times in fursuit, and furry dance competitions, in which contestants perform dances before a judge or judges.

Such events are almost always held during the evening hours, often accompanied with laser lights, strobe lights, and/or artificial fog to enhance the effect of the dance.

Furry dance competitions[edit]

A furry dance competition is a popular, widespread activity at certain cons in which furry competitors, with or without fursuits, perform dances in any of several permitted dance styles before a common group of judges, sometimes for awards.

Fursuit dance competition[edit]

In this type of furry dance event, furries solely in fursuits (fursuiters) perform dances in any of several permitted dance styles—such as acro, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, and modern, also in front of a common group of judges.

Typically performers will get between one and a half to two minutes to "show off" their dance skills[citation needed] to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.[citation needed] Fursuit dance competitions can either be performed solo or in groups.

The very first fursuit dance competition was held at Furry Weekend Atlanta 2008.[citation needed] Since then, hundreds of dance competitions all across the world have been held at conventions.


The music played at this events typically consists of fast-paced electronic music, played by selected furry and non-furry DJs with genres ranging to House, Trance, Techno, Jungle, and remixes.
