Thanks to over 13,000 votes by our fans and community, The Rockwell moves on to Round 2. Voting will take place May 3, 2018 for the Eastern US Semi-final round.
Despite amazing efforts by all our fans, Round 2 was taken by the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia. Their amazing video included not only clever Miss Frizzle-inspired graphics but a super clever song parody. Congratulations on your East Coast win!
We are surprised and honored to accept the “Community Award.” Selected by a panel of judges, “this award goes to the museum that not only produced an outstanding dance-off video, but who best embodies the comradery, spirit, and collegiality of Museum Dance Off.” We could not be more proud to earn this recognition – thanks for a wild ride!

The video features the music of an artist named Rockwell (ft. Michael Jackson), a one-hit-wonder whose song “Somebody’s Watching Me” inspired the theme of the video – The Rockwell’s security guard (Mark Robinson, as himself) watches disapprovingly over the security cameras as museum staff start to bust a move in the galleries.
Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Kirsty Buchanan, acted as creative director and choreographer for The Rockwell’s submission. “Museum Dance Off was a very fun way for The Rockwell staff to get creative and let loose – and a much-needed morale booster in this seemingly endless winter.”
