"Dancing has been such an important part of my life since I was a little
girl," said Britney Spears. "As soon as I saw the new TWISTER DANCE
game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the
spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It's a lot
In addition to having a custom remix of her hit song featured in the
game, Spears will be featured on game packaging, in a television ad and
in dance instruction videos that will be released in Fall 2012.
The game invites kids to rock the spots by placing moveable TWISTER
spots on the floor and then following the direction of the TWISTER DANCE
console. The TWISTER DANCE console offers superior sound quality and
bright, multi-color LED lights that light up to show dancers on which
spots they should place their feet. Arm and hand movements are up to the
dancers, allowing them to show off their individual style.
Girls will also be able to move to the beat of songs featuring Ke$ha and
Willow Smith, and an exclusive TWISTER DANCE song called "Caught Up in a
Twister." Plus, players can connect any mp3 player to the console to
dance to their own tunes. The built-in beat detection system turns any
song into a dance routine, so players can rock the spots with new and
different songs every time they play.
TWISTER DANCE will be available in Fall 2012 for the approximate retail
price of $34.99. The game is recommended for 1 to 2 players, ages 8 and
up. Four AA batteries are required for the dance console. The game
includes 8 moveable TWISTER spots (4 per player).
