- Not to be confused with Dance Contest.
Dance Challenge is a mini-game for the DS game Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force. It is played in the Night Club. It is similar to Dance Contest. This game is the only game you can play using one-card DS Download Play.
In multi-player, 2 players compete to keep dancing the longest. Unlike in single-player, where an NPC decides the direction of dance moves, both players trade off between adding their own direction to the sequence, starting with the joining player. Once there are 7 directions in the sequence, the newest one is added to the end, and the oldest one is removed.
Each player can fail twice, indicated by how many crowd members there are on their side, and upon failing a third time, they lose. The winning player has their coins earned doubled. The score is capped at 999 points, so the maximum amount of coins that can be won is 1998.
This is the only mini-game that can be played in multi-player with only one game cartridge, by using DS Download Play. The coins that player that downloads the game wins are simply lost when the game ends.
- In one of the Elite Penguin Force Missions, you have to defeat the Disco Penguin in a dance challenge to make Pop come with you and go back to the Puffle Training Room. You have to get a score of 60 or more.
