Dance Fabulous

Dance Fabulous is the creation of Nokia Music, Interscope Records and Dave Stewart.

The idea behind the creation Dance Fabulous is to dance along with music, using the directional arrows on your Nokia phone to create dance moves. There are different locations for you to dance in, which you can only be accessed by unlocking them. This means you have to dance your way through the levels and bust some amazing moves to get to the next stage.
Once you’ve completed a stage, you can move into a more ‘Dance Matt’ style section where you follow pre-set dance moves.

So now you can dance anywhere and at anytime even with your mobile phone.

Twice a week, 91 year old George puts on his dancing shoes and takes part in senior hip hop classes at Mt Helen Studio Jete in Victoria.

It's so good to see all ages are enjoying the art of Hip Hop dancing.
