Dance Central Achievements

Though overshadowed by the high-profile release of Rock Band 3, Harmonix’s rhythm-driven, Kinect-powered dance game Dance Central could well be a sleeper hit. Dancing games have been in need of a boost since the DDR paradigm went moribund sometime in the early aughts, and this title might be the one to provide it.

Below, you’ll find a full list of achievements, which will reward popping-and-locking and other such frivolities. Hint: doing the electric slide with this game turned on will actually decrease your gamerscore.
