Roblox is a social game by nature, and thankfully, the developers have added a handful of ways to express yourself physically. One of the most popular ways to express yourself in Roblox is by dancing, but there are plenty of other emotes that you can use to communicate with your fellow players. This guide will walk you through how to dance in Roblox.

Enabling chat

To emote in Roblox, you will need to enable chat. For some accounts, the chat is disabled by default. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to check if your chat is disabled or enabled. 

  1. Sign in to the official Roblox website
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the page.
  3. Select Settings, then open up the Privacy tab.
  4. Find “Who can chat with me?” on the page and choose Everyone from the drop-down menu to enable chat.

How to dance

Dancing is an emote that is incredibly simple to pull off. To emote, all you have to do is open your chat menu and type “/e” then the command you wish to input. For example, if you want to dance, type “/e dance” into the chat, then press Enter. There are three dances in Roblox on default servers. To use the other dance animations, put 2 or 3 at the end of “/e dance” and press Enter. Below is the list of all emotes available by default in Roblox. 

  • Point: /e point
  • Cheer: /e cheer
  • Laugh: /e laugh
  • Wave: /e wave
  • Dance: /e dance or /e dance2 or  /e dance3

Keep in mind that custom Roblox servers may have more emotes than the ones listed. Be sure to contact the server admins for a list of all the commands available. Or, on some servers, you can select Options at the bottom left, click Help, and then press Emotes to see a full list of available emotes. But for each custom emote, you will still have to put /e before the command to get them to work.
