Dance:UK takes the standard 'bemani' formula - arrows appear rhythmically on screen and the player must hit the corresponding button (on either a dance mat peripheral or the standard controller) in time with these arrows and the music. Points are awarded for accuracy with extras for making certain 'combos' (mini-routines within a song which are deemed especially difficult or long).

The PS2 and XBOX version of the game have over thirty tracks (around 20 of which are famous/original) by artists including Misteeq, Run D.M.C, Liberty X, Sugababes, Room 5, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Chic, The Trammps, 5ive, Junior Senior, Las Ketchup and DJ Sammy, while the Playstation version has a reduced twenty song tracklist.

There are initially three difficulty levels, and the player can either practice one song at a time (in Jukebox mode) or enter the Dance:UK Championship, winning which will unlock a 'Dance Recorder' mode in which players can record their own dance routines. In multiplayer up to 8 players can compete in succession or 2 players can compete head-to-head.

A karaoke mode is also provided for use with a wireless microphone (sold separately) whilst 'Aerobic' Mode calculates the number of calories you've burnt during play.


Dance:UK PlayStation 2 There's a Jukebox mode where the player can select any tune of their choosing. When highlighted like this there's a brief pause and then the tune's introduction starts playing.
Dance:UK PlayStation 2 The end of an Aerobics session. No score just a number of calories burned.
Dance:UK PlayStation 2 This is the Aerobics mode. Instead of points it records calories burned. It's hard keeping pace using a controller, trying to play the game while dancing would result in a serious workout
Dance:UK PlayStation 2 Once the score for the session has been announced the player gets to hear the crowd's reaction, 9400 is not a good score so they make a sort of unenthusiastic murmur while the dancer looks embarrassed
