Recently posted to my facebook and certainly applicable to what is to come…
It’s fun for me to see what “ITG” & “Stepmania” players have accomplished in step sequences from the original “mine” and “rolls” concepts back in the ITG development days. I guess it was actually a good idea eh? There was a time in the past when people were negative at these innovations… Glad to see the times have now changed!
Every person in the community is responsible for making it what it is… People will always continue to innovate and change the future that sometimes deviates from what others envision before us.
The exciting part of being an “innovator” is sitting back and seeing people thrive off these original ideas… You can’t possibly describe how amazing it is to see something change the future and mark a standard for people globally.
I’m extremely excited to soon be able to bring another “spark” that could excite people and impact the market once again. The days of my excitement are hard to contain as this new “innovation” comes to light.
I’m not trying to create “hype” or an empty promise by my words – I’m just extremely excited to be doing my part to keep the “rhythm game” community migrating thriving into the future.

iDANCE was the highlight multiplayer dance system from the 2009 Club Industry show. Even our competitors (BluFit, by Cobalt Flux) came over to play on our new iDANCE software and enjoy the fun that our dance team was having everyday. Our iDANCE system relies on a single universal display for realtime feedback for up to 32 players. Spectators enjoyed many of the new version 2 features and our iDANCE pads were packed during most of the show! (new players as well as experienced dance game players!)
Thank you goes out to all the players & spectators who came and had fun with us during the show. We all had a blast!
iDANCE continues it’s success at every show and I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the team that is helping distribute the most advanced dance game product ever made. Be on the lookout for an iDANCE system coming to an area near you soon!
