XBOX: Dance Central announced

Microsoft and Harmonix have joined forces to create Dance Central, a new dance game that uses Kinect to track players movements.

The game features a varied soundtrack of classic and contemporary pop, hip-hop and R&B hits, from artists such as Lady Gaga, No Doubt, Beastie Boys. Additional songs will later be available on Xbox Live.

Harmonix has worked with world-class choreographers to come up with authentic routines. Dance Central will boast over 600 moves, split over 90 routines – some of which will be familiar from the artists’ music videos.

The game also features a mode for more casual gamers entitled Break It Down, which allows anyone to learn to dance by tackling each move in every routine once at a time.

During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopulos said: At harmonix we’re always thriving for new ways to get people experiencing music. Dancing can be intimidating for some people, but dance central was developed so that everyone can play.”
