Game Introduction

Do you have the rhythm? Then step up onto the stage and prove it! In this dancing game, move and groove to the music by stepping on the arrows as they scroll up the screen. Do well enough, and you progress to the next stage!

Game Play

Start by selecting a song, then the game begins. As the arrows reach the top of the screen, press the corresponding button(s) with your feet.

The songs range from one foot (simple) (they are rated in feet instead of stars) up to eight, known as 'Exorbitant' songs, increasing in difficulty as far as speed (beats per min.) and are nearly impossible to finish without spending mass amounts of money or investing in any of the import home versions and dance mats!
