I want to shape up. Can I work out with Dance Central (1)?
Toggle Workout Mode to estimate how much energy you're burning while you dance! Once you've entered your weight and started the song, you can keep track of your workout with the current calories burned and elapsed time indicators on the left of the screen.
Turn Workout Mode on by selecting the song you want to play, choosing "Perform It", selecting your difficulty, and then scrolling down to "Enable Workout Mode" before you choose "Play!" You'll be asked to enter your weight for calculating calorie purposes. Workout mode will remain on for any of the songs you do with Perform It! for the duration of your play session, or until you turn it off.
