So this morning I was using DDR in workout mode. And it suddenly struck me: all those years when I was playing violin and trying to learn complicated rhythms, how much faster would I have learned them if I could have DANCED them?? I remember sometimes teachers would have me clap out rhythms, but dancing would have been so much cooler.
I’m thinking you would market it to the Suzuki folks. When you buy your Suzuki workbook, you could also get a companion DDR disc. The idea wouldn’t be to play and dance at the same time, but rather to get the rhythms down via the dancing, and then you’d know them cold when you picked up your instrument. Or, hell, I dunno, maybe you would play and dance simultaneously, although that seems pretty insane.
Anyway, it kind of amazes me that classical DDR doesn’t already exist. Does it, and am I just unaware of what it’s called? Or should I totally delete this post and start contacting my secret network of game developers? ;)
