The World’s Favorite Holiday App is Back with a New Look and New Dances That Will Take You ‘Virtually’ Anywhere! November 24, 2020 07:30 AM Eastern Standard Time NEW YORK--( BUSINESS WIRE )--It’s an annual tradition for millions! On November 1st, elves from the world’s favorite holiday app come alive just in time to add a sprinkle of magic to the holiday season. While holiday celebrations may be different this year, the joy and laughter these dancing elves bring to the season never disappoint! With an all-new look, the app has also added two new dances, Beach Party and Sleigh Ride, bringing the total dances to 23. You may not be traveling to a faraway destination this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t party on the beach or take a joyride in Santa’s sleigh. ElfYourself® also added a Season Pass feature giving users full access to all dances, including Augmented Reality versions. Lastly, users can now upload photos from their Instagram account and share their elvish greetings on WhatsApp and Instagram.

Seeing yourself as a dancing elf never gets old,” said Gil Sideman, CEO of Oddcast. “The year 2020 has been like no other year, and we hope that ElfYourself brings back smiles and laughter to people all over the world this holiday season.” The app is available on Google Play , the App Store , and on .
