Dance Central

in All Posts

Have you guys played with the Dance Central interactive video game on the Xbox Kinect?


IT’S SO FUN!  You try to mirror the dance moves shown on the television screen.  Your body is the controller, and you get points for correctly performing the moves.

That’s what what we did with our Friday night!  🙂

  • Kristina @ spabettie February 25, 2011, 11:29 pm

    ha – looks like you all were groovin’ !

    that is SO fun… I’ve done it a couple times and I want one of my own!!

  • Jessica February 25, 2011, 11:33 pm

    I’ve played that at a friend’s house – soo much fun! Makes me wish I had a Kinect 🙂

  • KT80 February 25, 2011, 11:34 pm

    That looks like a lot of fun! My husband would love to have the Kinect. I’ll have to keep it in mind since his birthday is coming up soon.

  • Maryann (The Balanced Bean) February 25, 2011, 11:35 pm

    That game is so fun!!

  • hippierunner February 25, 2011, 11:50 pm

    You guys are so cute. I want to play!

  • Susan February 25, 2011, 11:53 pm

    Haven’t played that, but gave my brother Just Dance 2 for the Wii for Christmas, which is similar. Played it two nights in a row when we were there – could not stop laughing. And with all due modesty, I was the best – even with a stiff/injured leg!

  • Alex @ Healing Beauty February 26, 2011, 12:02 am

    Aw looks like a lot of fun! I’m sure it gets a lot of laughs! Not that any of you are bad dancers, I’m just saying I think the concept is funny 🙂

  • Nicole February 26, 2011, 12:02 am


  • Katy (The Singing Runner) February 26, 2011, 12:04 am

    Haha! How fun!!! 😀

  • Raya February 26, 2011, 12:27 am

    This game is HYSTERICAL! We played it over Thanksgiving and even had my dad and my uncle doing the dances!! Sooo funny

  • Kate February 26, 2011, 12:50 am

    We got a Kinect for Xmas- I love it!!

  • Ellie@fitforthesoul February 26, 2011, 12:52 am

    Awww! I LOVE those pictures of you! You look so cute and like you walked down memory lane of when you were a child (it’s a good thing!) 😀

  • christine February 26, 2011, 1:22 am

    I love that game! Sometimes on my “rest” days from running I throw it in for an hour to just get moving. Oh, and I suck- it takes me 30-45 minutes to learn one of the “easy” songs.

  • Val @ Balancing Val February 26, 2011, 1:37 am


    i posted about my dance central kinect experience not too long ago.

    im so uncoordinated and those moves are just cray cray!

    even more crazy is the characters they have dancing.

    its fun though 😉

  • Teresa (Teresa Tastes & Travels) February 26, 2011, 2:36 am

    Yes! It’s soooooo fun!!

  • Sam February 26, 2011, 3:55 am

    Completely unrelated, but I’m loving the husband’s England shirt!

  • Tina February 26, 2011, 6:39 am

    I love that video games have become more about getting up an moving rather than just sitting on the couch for hours at a time. This looks like a blast!

  • Danielle February 26, 2011, 6:58 am

    What fun! I was so tired last night I went to sleep at 8pm!

  • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans February 26, 2011, 7:21 am

    Kinect is so fun!

  • Jessica @ Fit Chick Wannabe February 26, 2011, 7:28 am

    That looks like so much fun! I really want the Kinect. Do you guys have it or were you at a friends’ house?

  • Stacie @ Imperfectly Healthy February 26, 2011, 7:47 am

    I LOVE THE KINECT! My sister’s kids got one for Christmas and we played it. I worked up a sweat and was actually sore the next day!

  • Lauren February 26, 2011, 7:50 am

    We just got the kinnect and I can’t wait to play this!!

  • Stacie February 26, 2011, 8:10 am

    This looks so fun! Way better than Just Dance

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin February 26, 2011, 8:23 am

    I’ve never tried that game, but I used to love playing DDR when I was younger, even though I stunk at it. 😛

  • Nicole February 26, 2011, 8:25 am

    Yes! I love this game. I even made a YouTube video about it 😀

  • Kathie February 26, 2011, 9:06 am

    the kinect is AMAZING and SO MUCH MORE FUN than the wii!!

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete February 26, 2011, 9:23 am

    I so wish we had this game. I’ve played in Best Buy before and it is a lot of fun.

  • Kathleen @ KatsHealthCorner February 26, 2011, 9:37 am

    YAY for dancing! That looks like so much fun!


  • Fit Chick Britt February 26, 2011, 9:38 am

    I’ve never played the dance game, but I’ve heard its so fun. I’ve played the other games like the bowling and such and that was really fun.

  • Fallon February 26, 2011, 9:46 am

    Oh yes.. My boyfriend has his Kinect all set up.. I can’t dance at all and Dance Central makes it even worst. 😉

    We like the Sports game. The track and field one is a blast!

  • Ashley February 26, 2011, 10:01 am

    I love that game! And I’m a champ at it. All you really have to do is make the moves really big, so it’s more like flailing then dancing, but it works.

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) February 26, 2011, 10:19 am

    That looks like a fun game! I used to play Dance Dance Revolution until I started running and found that the pounding small steps were not compatible with my running calf muscles.

  • Amber K February 26, 2011, 12:02 pm

    I never have, but it looks ridiculously fun!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife February 26, 2011, 12:51 pm

    I love dancing! What a great idea for a game 🙂

  • Sarah February 26, 2011, 12:57 pm

    Is your sweatshirt from Ann Taylor Loft? I have one that looks like it–a Christmas gift from a few years ago. It’s just a little too short, but I love how you paired it with the longer shirt! Also, I played that game (in front of a crowd of 50 at a convention) and I was HORRIBLE! It’s so fun though 🙂

    • Caitlin February 26, 2011, 1:00 pm

      YES! I love it. It’s my favorite hoodie.

  • Jolene ( February 26, 2011, 1:01 pm

    Haha, that’s awesome!!! I have never played it, but it looks like a lot of fun!!

  • CH February 26, 2011, 1:33 pm

    My cousins have a k’nect and that game and it is so awesome! They live in Canada, so sadly, I can’t do it everyday. 🙁 But it was seriously so cool. I love how competitive it made us, and it was a great workout too. Although the pictures that the game took were always when we were in the weirdest positions, lol.

  • stephanie alaine February 26, 2011, 4:37 pm

    caitlin, that’s so funny! i played that exact same game with that exact same song last night with friends!! only difference: my fiance wouldn’t dance with me. booo. i had to dance off with the competitors: the girl and the guy! contagiously fun…

  • Ali @ Ali Runs February 26, 2011, 7:30 pm

    I’ve never played that. I used to love the game Dance Dance Revolution–my friends used to play so much!! So fun! 🙂

  • Rachel @ Healthy Teacher February 26, 2011, 8:59 pm

    Looks like a blast!

  • Amanda February 26, 2011, 9:26 pm

    OMG!!! My fiance and I just bought the Kinect and Dance Central at the beginning of February. We’re so obsessed! Another great game for the Kinect is “Kinect Sports.” Dan and I are so competitive with it!

  • Ashley February 26, 2011, 9:32 pm

    awww, cute jacket! Where did you get it – I LOVE it!!!

  • Ashley February 26, 2011, 9:55 pm

    yes! It’s finally a game I can beat my husband at! So much fun! =D

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy March 2, 2011, 11:22 am

    We love it!

  • buzz March 14, 2011, 9:40 pm
