Michael Jackson's amazing choreography is alive and well in the basement of my house. My daughters boyfriend gave her the Michael Jackson Experience Wii for Christmas. What fun! Its amazing how his fluid movements can be broken down for the everyday game player and dancer; it's wild that I can actually handle some of the moves. Not every single MJ song is available to dance to, but most of the good ones are; Billy Jean, Thriller and my favorite, Black or White. For the newbies there is a dance school offered to learn the specific movements before competing each actual song.
It's fun putting the steps together and remembering the first time you saw that specific video. It's quite a workout too! Everyone in the family enjoys this game. You could choose to follow the background dancers or Michael Jackson himself. Im not brave enough to follow Michael....yet. Unless I stick with "the Girl is Mine", and even that's pushing it.
