Cat Deeley fuels a dance revival in Australia with the launch of DanceStar™ Party!


Australians get their PlayStation®Move on to launch a new dance game sensation Sydney, Australia 20th October, 2011 - Sony Computer Entertainment Australia (SCE Aust.) and international megastar Cat Deeley, presenter of So You Think You Can Dance US, today celebrated the global launch of DanceStar™ Party – a new dance game from the creators of smash hit sensation SingStar®, exclusive to PlayStation®3 (PS3™) – by hosting a public dance-off.


Australians of all ages danced up a storm on PlayStation 3 at First Fleet Park in Circular Quay today. Cat Deeley was at her hosting best as dancers, gamers and punters alike battled it out for the title of Australia’s DanceStar. The lucky winner, 14 year old Bianca Calarco, from Cecil Hills (NSW) who heard about the competition on Facebook, impressed the judges with her moves and will jet off to the US in 2012 to watch So You Think You Can Dance live filming and also take home a year’s supply of PlayStation® games.


“Today’s search for Australia’s PlayStation DanceStar really captured the true spirit of dance, and that is to just get up on your feet and have loads of fun!” Cat Deeley said. “I see so many talented dancers on the show, but the cool thing is you don’t have to be a pro to play DanceStar Party. In true PlayStation style this game brings you experiences that no other game can – it’s got a killer 40 song track list set to original music video clips, and a whopping 160 choreographed dance routines. Plus, it’s even got the ability to create your own moves – so one thing is for sure, you’ll not only get fit, you’ll also never get bored! It’s going to be a massive hit this Christmas,” she said.


Cat continued: “Using the PlayStation Move motion controller, you can virtually step into the shoes of artists like Basement Jaxx, Usher and Willow Smith and become a dance diva in the comfort of your own living room. It’s from the makers of the smash hit SingStar franchise so you can even grab the mic and sing along!”

DanceStar Party will get every Aussie home into the party mood this year. For uber- keen dancers, DanceStar Party also offers the opportunity to devise your own routines using the pinpoint precision of the PlayStation Move. DanceStar Party also allows you to share your experiences with friends and family via Twitter and Facebook and also has also a calorie counter feature.

DanceStar Party for PlayStation 3 launches in stores nationally from today for RRP$49.95. Find out more at
