Dance Central (Kinect Game) Wiki

Hi you've reached Dare. I'm like, uh... really tired from clubbing last night.

Alright then, cheers. -Dare's voice mail in DC

Dare P. Batheson is a character in Dance Central and Dance Central 3. She is a member of D-Coy.


Dance Central

Dare first appears in Dance Central as a playable character with two looks: Neon Dreams and DIY Couture. Neon Dreams is available from the start while DIY Couture is available once the player earns 25 stars with her. In the game, she is the dancer used for the Off The Hook Challenge.

In the proposed story, Dare is dancing outside the roof of Angel's car, which also contains Miss Aubrey. A while after she is dancing, Miss Aubrey kicks her from behind, slightly annoying her. She is later seen on the front passenger seat of Angel's car, glaring at Miss Aubrey and newcomers MacCoy and Taye, who are all in the back seat. She is lastly seen at the club Mo was promoting with most of the other characters partying away.

Dance Central 2

Dare is not present in Dance Central 2, but it is revealed that she, and MacCoy, became agents for Dance Central Intelligence during the events of Dance Central 2, spying on Dr. Tan for suspicious activity. At some point however, she was held captive, delaying the mission from moving forward.

Dance Central 3

In the Story mode, Dare herself does not appear, but she is mentioned and seen sparsely. She is first mentioned by Lima who informs the player of her disappearance. Later on, Dance Central Intelligence is able to track down where she is and unfortunately finds her under a mind control unit. Once the player defeats Dr. Tan in the time portal, she gets freed from the unit and returns back to the agency.


Dare is a girl who is hugely into clubbing and living life out. She is constantly partying, and has a carefree attitude overall as an individual. She is also into outlandish style, and applies it to herself as such.
