Yesterday I talked about music and virtual worlds. Today let’s dance! Yes one can puppeteer their avatar to dance, alone or with a partner or with a group. In the beginning dances were done by clicking on a ‘pose ball’, pink for ladies and blue for the gentlemen. There are also large floating Dance Balls (allows 20 or more avatars to dance and holds 20 or more dances) and Dance Systems where you choose which dance you want from a menu and can change at will. You can also make your own HUD (Heads Up Display) where you program in your favorite dances.
Then there is the ‘chim’ which you wear, most popular place to wear is the hip. All the dances in the chim are choreographed in a sequence of your choice. The ‘chim’ is similar to the HUD except the dances loop and you do not choose which dance to activate. The chim is invisible and only your friends can click on your chim, or you can send them an invite to dance with you step by step.
Virtual worlds have many specialized dances too, like the River Dance which is very popular with the Irish members and the surfing community (another blog subject to come) or John Travolta’s Saturday Night Live dance or one of my favorites Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance.
So pop on in a virtual world and let’s dance! your feet won’t ache and you can literally ‘Dance ALL Night’… have FUN!
