DANCE QUEENS - Dance Wheel

DANCE QUEENS - Dance Wheel 121127

A few years ago I made something called a Dance Wheel. It allowed four dancers to dance together while positioned on a rotating wheel. This morning I woke up thinking about it and decided to update the wheel using the Hironics MPC positioning system.

I made one that positions up to four dancers around the wheel. It is only a positioning device and you need to use your dance HUD to get the avatars to dance in sync. Of course, it is possible to put dances in the wheel so the dancers can dance in sync or separately without a HUD, and I will leave it to you to do that if you wish.

Here is how you use it:

1. Each dancer sits on the device. You can change to an available seat if you want.

2. One person acts as the leader and controls the dancers with her/his Dance HUD

I added a color changing capability also. Just click within the wheel for a color menu.

I put the DANCE QUEENS - Dance Wheel in the Free Stuff Box at Dance Central.


P.S. the sheel is for only one orientation. If you want to orient it 90 degrees you have to change the 'slow rotation script' line that reads:
