Be a Broadway dancer in your own home

Have you ever dreamed of dancing in a show on Broadway?  Do you hear the opening strains of "All that Jazz" and just have to put your jazz hands out and picture yourself in front of a crowd?  Do you want to learn choreography that is actually used in Broadway shows?  Your time has come.

The new "Dance on Broadway" video game is available for the Nintendo Wii.  Being billed as a dance game, it also is said to be a workout in disguise because the dancing can burn a number of calories.

Earlier this month, Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo, who are both currently appearing in Hair, teamed up with Ubisoft for the launch of the video game at Rockefeller Center. Young and DeGarmo hosted a meet-and-greet with fans where they played the video game - which includes the songs "Aquarius" and "Let the Sunshine In" from HAIR - and gave BroadwayWorld a special demonstation, competing against one another for 'Dance on Broadway' champion of the day.  As you'll see in the video, Young did pretty well executing the moves.

The game allows up to four players at a time to compete with a stage performance using such songs as "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray, "Fame," and even "Luck be a Lady" from Guys and Dolls. Designed for players of all ages, Dance on Broadway requires only one Wii remote per player as they dance and sing following on-screen choreographed movements and lyrics putting themselves in the spotlight.

Who knows - this could be the start of a new career? Or at least a chance to dream about what it might have been like.
