Dancers from the New York City Ballet put a new spin on gamers' victory celebrations

Sony's PlayStation brand has released a series of videos showcasing the victory dances of winning gamers. But the dancers in these spots really know their stuff — they are professional dancers with the New York City Ballet.

The spots, developed by the New York office of Bartle Bogle Hegarty, feature interpretations of six PlayStation genres: sports (football, soccer, basketball), war, space, and cops and robbers. Each spot begins with classical dance moves that quickly give way to over-the-top celebratory dancing.

The spots debuted on PlayStation's blog and its Greatness Awaits website. The brand is asking gamers to share their best victory dance on Instagram using the tag #PS4dancecontest. Each week, several winners will get a free PlayStation 4.
