Dance Fantasy


PARENTS

DANCE FANTASY is an exciting dance game that lets children exercise their creative and imaginative talents. Guiding one or two dancers, your child can combine a variety of dance steps to produce their own original performances.
Graceful twirls, daring leaps and amazing twists all add to the fun of creating and then showing that special dance fantasy to friends.

FISHER-PRICE Learning Software is designed to make it easy for children to 
learn through creative play, needing little more than imagination and a joystick.
These brief instructions for playing will help you get off to a quick start.
