The Sims 4 Slow Dance Mods — Best Features — SNOOTYSIMS

Love and romantic interactions have always played an enormous role in The Sims 4. We love making our Sims fall in love with each other and see their relationship grow deeper. Weddings and dates in The Sims 4 bring a warm fuzzy feeling to every one of us. With Romantic Slow Dance mods, you can make these lovely events even more special. We have included two mods that unlock this interaction, and you can click here for more romance mods you might find interesting!

The Romantic Slow Dance Mods

The Slow Dancing mod from Sacrificial is an amazing addition to The Sims 4. It is compatible with the base game, which means you don’t need any expansions or game packs for this mod to work. You can download it from the creator by clicking this link. Your Sims may unlock this interaction in the Romance Menu as soon as they have their romance bar filled a bit.

Romantic Slow Dance Mod Features

While your Sims are dancing, a new pie menu called “Slow Dance” will appear. Your Sim can now Embrace the Sim they are dancing with or Make Out with them. Another significant part about this mod is that Slow Dance will further strengthen the relationship between the participants and increase their Romantic relationship and Friendship values. Slow Dancing will even ease down any negative moodlet your Sims might have. After the participants finish dancing, they will both get the flirty buff “Romantic Dance”. Since this is a romantic interaction, if other Sims see your Sim dancing with another, they can get jealous and consider your Sim a cheater if they share a romantic relationship. If you’d like to see how this mod looks in the game, check out this video.

Interactions From The Past Mod

If you missed the Slow Dance interaction from The Sims 3, then this is the mod for you! The fantastic Interactions From The Past mod from Thepancake1 unlocks the Slow Dance interaction for your Sims, which was introduced in The Sims franchise’s previous installment.

Interactions From The Past Mod Features

Along with the Slow Dance interaction, this mod also gives your Sims the ability to Dip Kiss and Dance on Counter. You can find Slow Dance under the Romance Menu. Similar to the previous mod, your Sims will need to have a romantic relationship first. Well, that, and a stereo. As soon as you turn the stereo on and neither of the Sims is in a bad mood, they will be able to start Slow Dancing. For the interactions to work, you will need to download and install Scumbumbo’s XML Injector v2 first. You can find it right here. The creator is working on converting even more interactions from The Sims 3 into The Sims 4. We can’t wait to see what they will have for us next!

How to Install Mods

By following these steps, you can install any mods for The Sims 4!

  • Step 1: After downloading the desired mod, extract the .zip file anywhere.
  • Step 2: Locate the “Mods” folder in your game’s directory destination. For PC, the usual path is Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods
  • Step 3: Copy and paste the extracted files into the “Mods” folder.
  • Step 4: Start the game and enable the “Enable Custom Content and Mods” option in your game settings. You can find it by pressing ESC > Options > Other.
  • Step 5: Restart your game if you can’t see the changes.


The modders always find the missing features in The Sims 4 and manage to fill those gaps and we love them for it. A slow dance mod might not be a total necessity to have an enjoyable experience with the game, but it definitely helps! And it’s already there, so why not get it for yourself?

Dancing | The Sims Wiki


Sims dancing in a club

Not to be confused with Music and Dance or Dance.

Dancing is an activity that a Sim can do alone or with a partner. Dancing is also a secret skill in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 and a full skill in The Sims 4: Get Together.

Dancing with a partner builds skill in dancing. Although the player can't see what level the Sim is at, they may be able to tell by the moves the Sim does. For example, Sims with low dancing skill will occasionally step on the partner's toe, while Sims with high dancing skill will rarely do this.

With The Sims 2: University, teens who reach level 8 the dance skill can receive a scholarship, the Tsang Footwork Award. However, since the dance skill isn't visible it's rather hard to get, the only way to get it is to make a Sim practice dancing until the "Bust A Move" option becomes available on other Sim.

In the The Sims 2: FreeTime dancing increases enthusiasm in the Music and Dance hobby.

There are several ways a Sim can engage in this interaction:

  1. Choose "Dance. . . <dance>" on an Audio object.
  2. Click on the selected Sim and choose "Dance . . .<dance>"
  3. Click on a Sim and choose "Dance Together", "Let's do the Smustle", "Entertain . . . Bust a Move", "Slow Dance" or "Dance. . . <dance>"
  4. When a Sim nearby is dancing the Smustle, the player can click on them and the option "Join Smustle" should appear.

A hidden Club Dancing skill is added in Late Night. It is acquired by dancing at a community lot for a period of time (roughly 3-4 in-game hours). The community lot in question must be designated as a club. Sims will automatically club dance inside clubs, but they can choose as an optional dancing type inside their home, along with the other options. Sims cannot perform club dancing while inside a community lot that isn't a club, or inside another Sim's house.

The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure introduces the Rumbasim dance, which can be unlocked by having Sims reach level 4 in the Selvadoradian culture skill.

Dance contests[]

Dance Contests were added in The Sims 2: FreeTime. A Sim can enter a dance contest by clicking on the DJ booth, and the winner will be rewarded money. In The Sims 2: Bon Voyage and The Sims 2: Apartment Life, a Sim can challenge another to Fire Dance or Break Dance, if both Sims have learned the dances.

The Sims 3 Store[]

The Sims 3 Store introduced a visible dancing skill, it's coming with Stiff as a Board, Light as a Feather Dance Collection. Sims can learn and increase Dancing skill by using Light as a Feather Ballet Barre and Stiff as a Board Dance Floor. Having this skill in the skill journal allows the player to see their progress in the secret dancing skills: dancing, club dancing[TS3:LN], and childhood ballet[TS3:G].


So many dances, so little time. Whether you're performing a ballet or dancing the The Smustle, (Sim Name) will be dazzling on the dance floor before you know it!


  • Basic Dancing Skill
  • Club Dance Skill[TS3:LN]
  • Childhood Ballet Ability[TS3:G]
  • Dance Barre Time
  • Smustles Danced
  • Chicken Dances
  • Mascot Dances


This dance skill and the base game hidden dance skill are listed separately. In the skill journal, Basic Dancing Skill, Club Dance Skill and Childhood Ballet Ability have 3 levels:

  • Unskilled
  • Beginner (Level 1)
  • Intermediate (Level 2)
  • Advanced (Level 3)

Each level determines how well Sims perform that particular dance.

The Sims 4: Get Together[]

Dancing skill returns in The Sims 4: Get Together with dance floors, though a dance floor is not required. Although toddlers and older can dance, the skill can only be learned by Sims who are teens or older.

Sims can show off their moves on a dance floor at any time, but music must be playing nearby for Sims to just "dance" on it.

The following interactions are available with both dance floors and stereos:

  • Dance
  • Dance Together

The following interactions are only available with dance floors:

  • Group Dance
  • Show Off Moves
  • Dance Battle


  1. ↑ In The Sims 2, music is not required for a child and an older Sim to dance together.
  2. ↑ The Smustle uses a variation of Michael Jackson's Thriller dance moves.
