Dance Central 2 is a dance/music rhythm game developed and published by Harmonix Music Systems for the Xbox 360 Connect. The game is a sequel to Dance Central.


The core gameplay of Dance Central 2 remains identical to its predecessor. Players perform specific dance moves that mirror the movements of the characters on-screen. Players are graded for the accuracy and timing of their moves. Points are scored by mimicking these dance movements correctly, with higher scores being given on how accurate the player recreates the move.

New features to Dance Central 2 include voice control, simultaneous local cooperative and competitive modes. The fitness mode has been improved, and the Break It Down mode grew more in-depth and customizable and when crews come in.


The names in purple are the new characters in Dance Central 2.
