Adventurers wanted. No dancing talent required.

Welcome to The Top Secret Dance Off, an underground network of otherwise ordinary people seeking to activate the dance secret -- an elusive power said to be hard-wired into our brains, and requiring highly unusual dance experiences to unlock it.

As part of an alliance, you'll complete dance quests and win dance-offs to develop Choreopowers and to unlock new dance battlegrounds to explore. Your progress toward activation will be tracked on the super-secret Quest Board.

Your first mission is to complete Dance Quest #1: Disguise Yourself. New dance quests and dance-off battlegrounds will be revealed every few weeks throughout 2009. But you don't have to complete every quest or battle in every dance-off. Just pick your favorites, and dance at your own pace -- whatever gets you closer to the secret.

And remember: You can start your dance-off adventure any time. The quests never expire, so you can't fall behind in TSDO. Dance at your own pace! If you miss one dance-off, there's always another one coming...

About the adventure

Top Secret Dance Off is an adventure you can undertake anywhere in the world. No dance skills or talent is required. In fact, you may find yourself rewarded more for awkward dancing than for a virtuoso performance. Activating the dance secret isn't about being a good dancer. It's about being a clever dancer, a brave dancer, and occasionally a stealthy dancer.

You will need 1) music and 2) a way to capture digital video in order to participate in everything. Some quests will work better with Mp3 players, but they're not strictly necessary. If you don't like the music you have, use our common soundtrack found in the left sidebar of this page. And if you are missing video gear, you can join us as a super-secret or shadow member.

Adventures will involve undertaking a variety of challenging, top secret dance missions on video, sometimes in the privacy of your home, and sometimes in the most unlikely environments. You may play alone, or with up to four friends. Mask-wearing or other disguises is required.

I recorded this video about this time last year but never posted it because of the new way you have to post videos on ning. Well, I sucked it up, so here it is. Also, if you've noticed that the suit I'm wearing as part of my disguise has changed…

It appears as if this little, formerly-wonderful corner of the internet is a ghost town.For the record, though, I've been checking in several times a week for any signs of life, for that new adventure promised to start in 2012.Just wanted to leave a little mark, let anyone passing through know that someone out there still cares.See More
