How to slow dance on sims 3

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]

  • 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.
