The Dance Rug allows you to dance with 4 different interactions:
- Dance - HipHop
- Dance - Travolta
- Dance - Techno
- Just Dance!

Those 4 interactions features custom animations. Just Dance randomize which dance style your Sims will do and also has a specific dance animation as well!
Dancing also increases the fun of your sims.

This is a simple package and is installed like every package file. It does not require any EP and should be compatible with every game. This should not conflict with any other mods including my Yoga Rug
It was done under the 1.27 patch.

The object is based on RugTraditionalSquare4x4, and you can find it in the Rug section, under "Dance Rug", for 100S$.

Note that I am NOT the animator of this, as this was made using Motion Captures (filming someone dancing).
The animation are distributed by Carnegie-Mellon motion capture dataset (learn more here), free of copyright and charge.
Thanks to MorososAp for the Techno dance, who kindly accepted to let us use his work, and mocapdata.com/ for certain animation.

Most of the converting process was done by the MTS member Umpa, for my part, I scripted and reworked the animation files.

I hope you enjoy, and please, leave a comment on this bellow!
