Dance Contest was a mini-game in Club Penguin, located at the Night Club. Its gameplay mechanics were similar to the ones from Dance Dance Revolution, as players had to match the arrow directions floating upwards across the screen, passing colored markers, by pressing the corresponding arrow keys. The more accurately the player pressed an arrow key in relation to when an arrow passed a marker, the more points were received. If this was done enough times consecutively without missing, a streak began, yielding more points.
Additionally, Purple Puffles joined the game when walked. While they did not affect gameplay, they passively earned extra points for the player.
