  1. Dance Dance Revolution “The Latest weapon in the nations battle with the epidemic of childhood obesity” - NY times By. Melanie Wittenberger

  2. How does DDR work? • As the upbeat music plays, arrows pointing up, down, left and right scroll up the screen. The arrows on the screen mimic the ones on the players matt on the floor.
