What’s the Best Dancing VR Title For You?
It’s worth noting that there are a ton of other rhythm games for virtual reality that will get your body moving, even if they aren’t based around dancing, such as Beat Saber, PowerBeats, and Soundboxing.
Similar to the Dreamcast classic Samba de Amigo, Airtone has players hand dancing to music. The arcade title features three different types of notes, 25 tracks, and multiple difficulty levels. If you enjoyed Sega’s cult classic then you will find a lot to enjoy here.
Airtone is playable on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR. It’s currently available on Steam for $29.99. While it hasn’t received a North America or European release on the PlayStation Store, it can be purchased on Asian regions, such as Hong Kong, and has English voiceover.
Another one of the best dancing VR fitness games is Audio Trip, although this one will test your dance moves more. Players are constantly on the move as they get out of the way of oncoming barriers and it is quite the great leg workout. Players can take it to the next level by doing squats rather than just ducking under barriers as well. You’ll also be using your arms to bang on drums, so it’s a great full body workout.
Audio Trip has been given a fitness rating comparable to tennis by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. It is currently available on Steam for $19.99 and is playable on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, and Windows Mixed Reality.
Dance Central VR
Developed by the music masterminds at Harmonix, who are best known for creating Guitar Hero and Rock Band, Dance Central VR is an Oculus exclusive that will have you busting out advanced choreography in no time. It features a licensed soundtrack filled with memorable songs such as “Sorry” by Justin Bieber and Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble,” and even more tracks are available as paid downloadable content. Like the non-VR versions of the game, there are multiple difficulty settings, so you can learn to dance over time.
Dance Central VR is exclusive to Oculus Rift and Quest. The game is currently available on the Oculus Store for $29.99.
Continuing our list of the best dancing VR fitness games is Dance Collider, a late 2019 release that has quickly become a mainstay of the sub-genre. Its one of the most fully featured dancing titles with 45 tracks to get down to and a VR dance editor that will let you dance to whatever you want on your computer. It’s a blast to play and there are motion captured dances for each song to learn while you’re getting a solid workout in.
Dance Collider has been given a fitness rating comparable to using an elliptical by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. It is available now on Steam for $14.99 and is playable on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality.
Holodance is one of the oldest rhythm VR titles and was in Early Access for nearly four years until it officially released in February of this year. This development time has allowed it to grow exponentially over time and players can now punch orbs, slice drops with laserblades, shoot down drones, or dance with dragons. There’s a ton of variety with 20 environments to play in, and it offers up something for everyone due to all of its different features.
Holodance is available on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. It can be purchased on Steam for $19.99.
Released to Early Access early last year, Millionaire Dancer is an affordable dancing game by a small indie studio. While it might not have as many features as the big budget titles on this list, it’s an enjoyable game with fun gameplay as players follow rhythm tracks to hand dance. In total there are 10 songs with two difficulty tracks and a custom track editor will be fleshed out in the future.
Millionaire Dancer is playable on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. It only costs $9.99 on Steam.
Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing
Truly one of the most unique dancing VR fitness games, Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing actually has players strapping their motion controllers to their legs in order to measure foot movement. It recommends that players use Rebuff Reality’s TrackStrap to play, so there is a purchase to be made, but the game itself is free. Similar to Dance Dance Revolution, you’ll have to match the beat of music with specific foot patterns to get a combo going. Music is auto-generated, so you can play any music you want. If you want something like DDR, this is your best bet.
Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing is available on Valve Index and HTC Vive. It’s available for free on Steam.
Another title that has you tracking your legs by using an attachment is RhythmDanceVR. Released earlier this year in Early Access, it has players attempting to gain a high score. Each song has three difficulty levels to check out and multiplayer (which will support up to eight players) is coming in a future update.
RhythmDanceVR is available for $14.99 on Steam and only is compatible with the HTC Vive.
Synth Riders will keep players active and provides a great workout by having players block and punch targets while moving their legs plenty as well. The synth-heavy soundtrack provides an atmospheric experience and a recent update added in multiplayer. It continues to get better and is well worth checking out if you like synths.
Synth Riders is available now on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, and Windows Mixed Reality for $19.99. It has been given a fitness rating comparable to an elliptical by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise.
If you’re looking for a more relaxed dancing title then Wave Circles is your choice. The game encourages players to create their own dances to music and supports YouTube streaming so you can share what you’ve created. There’s also handcrafted levels featuring 25 songs and you can challenge friends to virtual dance battles. You’ll get as much from this as you put into it, so you can either take it slow or go all out.
Wave Circles is available on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. It costs $9.99 on Steam and has been given a fitness rating comparable to walking by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise.
That does it for VR Fitness Insider’s list of the top dancing VR fitness games. Any of them will get your body moving and allow you to be able to enjoy shaking your groove thing while you burn calories.
