Dance Contest was a mini-game in Club Penguin, located in the Night Club. Its style was similar to Dance Dance Revolution in that the player plays the game by pressing specific arrow keys as arrows float upwards across the screen, passing colored markers. The direction the arrow keys face corresponds to which arrow key must be pressed. The more accurately the player pressed an arrow key in relation to when an arrow passes a marker, the more points were received. If this was done enough times consecutively without missing, a streak begins, yielding more points.
Additionally, Purple Puffles could join the game when walked. While they do not affect gameplay, they passively earn extra points.
