With two daughters at home, you can imagine that our lives revolve around dance. Most of the time, the girls are playing dance recital, dance class or gymnastics as my living room is quickly transformed into a stage. They LOVE to perform! As a dancer myself, I love that my girls are falling in love with the performance art as well and I do everything I can to encourage their creativity.
As I’ve posted in the past, we host Family Game Night just about every Friday. I love to sit down as a family after a long and hectic week to enjoy the company of my husband and daughters. Recently, we were given the opportunity to review the new game by Hasbro, Twister Dance and I knew it would be an immediate hit with my two ballerinas.
Brittany Spears, pop sensation and dancer herself, joined forces with Hasbro to release Twister Dance in early February saying, “Dancing has been such an important part of my life since I was a little girl. As soon as I saw the new TWISTER DANCE game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It’s a lot of fun!” In fact, Spears will be releasing a brand new fansourced video and is inviting kids ages 8-16 to be involved by submitting their own video of how they “Rock the Spots” by October 24, 2012. The best part? One video will win $10,000 (U.S. Only)!
There is no scoring system so you cannot declare a winner, but the game itself was a ton of fun. Lily loved being able to connect her iPod Touch to the Twister Dance game and do dances to her own songs (and I love that there was an “easy” mode so I could keep up)! With the holidays coming up, I think this would make a wonderful gift for the tween market! Twister Dance is now on shelves at mass retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $34.99.
