Default Duplicating animation

I have this little animation:

Excuse the domain

All going well. But what I really want it to have, say, 6 of that thing dancing. Like in a britney video or something.

Is there anyway to just duplicate that thing and move the duplicate and keep all the animation.

Yeah, you can look in the docs under DYNAMICS for Partical Instancing / Replacement.

You should be able to create as many particles as you want, then, instance your animated dude to each particle, thus, duplicating the dancing dude.

I believe you can "offset" the animation as well to make them all seem like separate dancing dudes
