The Sims 4 Dancing Skill

A Minor Skill in the Get Together Expansion

The Sims 4 Get Together includes dancing as a minor skill. Minor skills are restricted to 5 levels, so they're not as fully-featured as the typical skill. That said, there isn't as much to be said about this one as I'd like as a guide writer, but it does add some nice extra functions to the game that complement the other features of Get Together.

How to: Dancing Cheats
Press Control + Shift + C then type testingcheats on and press enter. You can now set your skill level with stats.set_skill_level minor_dancing x (fill in 1-5) - we also have a full listing of Skill Cheats and a master list of Cheats in The Sims 4

Getting Started
Sims are able to use any full-length mirror to 'Practice Moves' and raise their dance skill, even those that do not say +Dance. With a regular stereo on, they can also practice their moves by dancing normally. It's a really easy skill to level and will also give Sim kids levels in the Motor skill. Of course, you can also go out and join other Sims at clubs to see a more entertaining way to level it, as your Sim may be the odd one out should a group dance start. You can dance to an active DJ Booth or by clicking the large square dance floors that are included in the EP.

Dancing Retro Sneakers unlock at level of of the dance skill in Get Together
These are the sneakers (female variant) that are unlocked at level 5 Dancing.

Dancing is fun, and that's one of its main purposes. Even watching a dancer will raise a Sim's fun meter. The Skill's ideal mood is Confident, so you will gain skill faster and max it pretty quickly if you get your Sim in the right mood. Use Psych Up at a mirror in a club's bathroom if you want your Sim to impress!

Dancing Skill Levels:

  • Level 1 - Arm-charm dance move
  • Level 2 - Discuss Dance Techniques with other Sims, perform the Pump pop dance move.
  • Level 3 - Can show off Jimmmy Leg Dance move, and receives a portable dance floor so you can dance anywhere!
  • Level 4 - Can show off the Light Spin spinning move and has new, added steps to dance moves.
  • Level 5 - Can do the Back Flip and unlock dancing retro sneakers you can put on using the closet/dresser (CAS)

Dance Battles in Get Together

Dance Battles
These are just for fun, and there's no win/lose that I've seen, though it's sometimes quite obvious - as in the screenshot above - that one Sim is 'winning' the battle. The two will clear the floor and others will watch - watching a dance battle is a fun activity.

Show off Moves
Clicking this option (which seems to only appear on dance floors) will allow your Sim to take over the floor and show others their moves. Nailing it gives them a chance at a confidence boost for a couple of hours, which may be helpful to turning a fun night out into a chance at a date.

Group Dance in Get Together
Group Dancing is possible once you've formed a group. You then click the dance floor and choose between five types of group dance.

Group Dance
Sims can dance as a group. In order to access the command, you've got to form one first. Click on your Sim, Actions > Form Group. Sims who are in a club gathering are automatically in a group, so your club can easily do this. The dances for a level 5 Sim are 'Lean Back', 'Spin, Snap, Sway', 'Boogie Down Woogie', 'Break It Down' and 'One, Two Steppin''. You can also add several extra Sims to make a huge line dance if you like. It's a fun activity that puts Sims in a good mood and facilitates socializing.

Portable Dance Floor
The cardboard portable dance floor you get for level 2 looks kind of awful, but it will let you do group dances anywhere as well as show off moves to other Sims. Dance floors can be built at home that are far more attractive, so if you'd like to make a party room - or build a special hangout for your club with a nice dance floor, it's entirely possible.
