    Many moons ago for PS Home, I had made suggestions about the importance Dancing had as an expression of our virtual selves.
    Everyone has different tastes in dancing, and dancing typically is paired with the type or genre of music one is listening to. That being said, it wasn't adopted until the last couple years by Sony and their 3rd party devs to put in anything beyond the generic dance moves. And it was unfortunate that it had to be done as something as clunky and "laggingly equipped" as an item.. one at a time!

    :idea: For the love of all that's holy, when dances are added, both individual and couples, or even group dances (line dance anyone?), ADD them so that they can be selected in the same manner as the generic ones !
    I would say that again.. but I think you get the point...

    :idea: Any dance step added needs to either be infinitely looped, or marketed and sold as a "special move", which should be executable without cutting off the base dance being performed.. it's a quick one-shot move (moonwalking is a rare example that could be either type, depending on how it was designed).

    :idea: While this idea is not my own, I will include it here: It is ridiculous in Home that we were buying dances, dance packs etc.. and frequently had no clue or idea how great.. or lame they were going to end up being. suggested today was a visual "preview" of what we were buying in the store!

    :idea: We should be able to have "favorites" show in our selection menu, while ones we don't care as much for able to be moved to the bottom, or even better into a Home style "storage" to place those.. you know, less often used or ones we found to be .. lamo.

    :idea: Lastly, I have frequent thoughts while dancing in home of how "totally awesome" it would be to be able to "pre-record" a whole dance "routine" (up to x minutes worth) and then be able to select and do that routine anywhere I am able to dance.

    e.g. So I have a stack of dances both generic and purchased available to me, as well as a number of my favorite special moves, and I only need to look at my favorites to record my dance routine. I'm dancing along with my base dance, I begin "recording" my "Routine 1", I continue to do the basic dance for a time, then throw in some special moves, then switch to a new base dance.. then do some more special moves, then switch to yet another base dance, continue that for some time, and click "End".
    Now anywhere I want to show off my awesome dancing and choreography skills, I can hit "Routine 1" and BAM! ..I'm anyone from Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers, to Michael Jackson or Beyonce, to Hatsune Miku or Psy doing “Gangnam Style”.

    @NeoHelper Ohh! I like that added thought.
    Having a Dance pack that unlocks more dances as you level it up! Now mind you.. that's not how I want "most" of my dancing to be handled. But a couple would be fun!

    Maybe even reach out to Konami and see if they are interested in integrating a "Dance Pack" that can be used in any space, but is a mini-game that you are playing like DDR (Dance Dance Revolution). Hitting the right button, at the right time, results in not only your character dancing, but as you do more and more correct moves, it starts to add in some awesome random "special moves". So the longer you maintain your dance streak, the better your whole routine looks!

    I like it :cool:
