Dance Central (Kinect Game) Wiki

Hey you've reached Emilia, I'm not here right now. If it's
important - like you need bail money - call the boxing gym
'cause I'm probably there kicking major butt!

-Emilia's voicemail in DC

Emilia is a character that has appeared in every Dance Central game thus far. She is a member of Riptide Crew.


Dance Central

Emilia first appears in Dance Central as a playable character with two looks: Sweatin' and Knockout. Sweatin' is available from the start while Knockout is available once the player earns 25 stars with her. In the game, she is the dancer used for the Tough Challenge.

In the proposed story, Emilia is on the phone with Miss Aubrey at the gym. As they are conversating, Miss Aubrey abruptly disconnects the phone call, confusing Emilia. She then punches a punching bag, knocking it with so much force that it discombobulates from the gym and breaks through a window. She is lastly seen at the club Mo was promoting with most of the other characters partying away.

Emilia appears in Dance Central 2 as part of Riptide Crew and comes with three looks: Crew Look, Street Style, and DC Classic, with Street Style being unlocked by earning 36 stars within Riptide Crew's songs in the Crew Challenge mode on any difficulty and DC Classic being unlocked by putting in the code "Left, Left, Up, Right, Right, X, Down, Y" with an Xbox 360 controller at the "Enter Cheats" section of the game.

Emilia telling the player that their crew auditions are over before Bodie convinces her otherwise

Emilia appears as a part of Riptide Crew in Dance Central 3. Aside from the three looks from Dance Central 2, Emilia also has two more: Retro Fitted and DCI Agent. Retro Fitted and Street Style are unlocked from the start while the rest are unlocked by [insert].

Emilia co-hosting a Dance Central Live episode with Bodie

In the Story mode, Emilia was taken to the 2000s to learn moves from that era that can be used against Operation Lockstep, Dr. Tan's plan to take over the dancing world, for Dance Central Intelligence's mission. While there she co-hosted "Dance Central Live", a music television show, with Bodie. When the player arrives in the 2000s, Emilia, once finishing a show, advises the player that their show is not done filming for the season, and ignores the player's request to come back, but Lima, via Boomy, demands them otherwise. Later on, Emilia tells Bodie, who thinks that another show is happening, that the cameras are off, puzzling him. Rasa, via Boomy, then alerts the two that Dr. Tan's army has invaded Dance Central Intelligence, but gets cut off before he can finish. Noticing this, they quickly return back. Once back, the agency appears silent, but she soon gets taken away, presumably by Dr. Tan's army, and is sent back to prehistoric times. Luckily, it is revealed later on by Rasa and Lima that Emilia, along with everyone else, was sent back to the present as the player was fighting Dr. Tan. When she returns, she is talking to Angel, much to Miss Aubrey's anger who is watching from the sidelines.
