broadway musical

Are you a fan of Broadway musicals?  If so, how would you like to dance to some of the most popular songs from several musicals, many of which are still playing live on Broadway?  You can do just that if you have either a Wii or a PlayStation 3 video game system as well as the video game Dance on Broadway.

Dance on Broadway has been out for a few years now so the game is readily available.  It was originally released for the Wii back in 2010 and later for the PlayStation 3 in 2011.  Dance on Broadway is a dancing game so you essentially move in concert with the avatars on the screen.  Based on how well you follow the steps and movements you will be met with varying forms of assessments such as "Great", "Excellent", etc.

You may ask how does this dance video game differ from some of the others that are more current, such as Just Dance and Dance Central.  Well, there are similarities between Dance on Broadway and other dance type video games; however, the major difference is that Dance on Broadway is comprised entirely of songs and music from musicals -- no pop, rock, rap or soul -- simply musicals.  Some songs you may be familiar with which are on this video game are "All that Jazz" from the musical Chicago; "Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In" from Hair and "Cabaret" from the musical Cabaret.  In fact there are twenty different musicals you can dance to when you play Dance on Broadway.  Unfortunately, the songs are not directly from the musicals but are sung by other talented singers instead.  However, the tune and flavor of the actual songs from the musical are reflected in the twenty songs. The biggest plus is as you dance you will be exercising as well, while having fun!

Get the Dance on Broadway video game and before long you will be dancing as if you are the star of a big time musical, without even leaving the comfort of your home.
