Released January 4, 2018

Dance Contest was a mini-game in Club Penguin Online, located in the Dance Club. Its style was similar to Dance Dance Revolution in that the player played the game by pressing specific arrow keys as arrows floated upwards across the screen, passing colored markers.

The direction the arrow keys faced corresponded to which arrow key had to be pressed. The more accurately the player pressed an arrow key in relation to when an arrow passed a marker, the more points were received. If this was done enough times consecutively without missing, a streak began, yielding more points.

Additionally, Purple Puffles could join the game when walked. While they did not affect game play, they passively earned extra points.

  • Grade AAA – only perfect hits.
  • Grade AA – only perfect and great hits.
  • Grade A – notes hit percentage was exactly 100% (only perfect, great, and good hits).
  • Grade B – notes hit percentage was at least 75% and less than 100%.
  • Grade C – notes hit percentage was at least 50% and less than 75%.
  • Grade D – notes hit percentage was less than 50%.
