History

Dance Central

Taye first appears in Dance Central as a playable character with two looks: Street Chic and Summertime. Street Chic is available from the start while Summertime is available once the player earns 25 stars with her. In the game, she is the dancer used for the Legit Challenge.

In the proposed story, Taye overhears Mo's promotion of a club and dances in celebration. She later gets in Angel's car, sitting next to MacCoy, much to his pleasure. She is finally seen one more time, at the club partying.

Dance Central 2

In Dance Central 2, Taye appears again as a playable character, and is considered a part of the crew Flash4wrd with her younger sister Li'l T. She has three looks: Crew Look, Street Style, and DC Classic, the latter being her Street Chic outfit from the last game. Out of the three, Crew Look is the only one available from the start. Street Style is unlocked by earning 36 stars within Flash4wrd's songs in the Crew Challenge mode on any difficulty and DC Classic is unlocked by putting in the code "Up, Left, Y, X, Left, Up, X, Y" with an Xbox 360 controller at the "Enter Cheats" section of the game.

Taye giving Li'l T tough love regarding The Glitterati

In the Crew Challenge mode, Taye recognizes the player to be the talent Bodie mentioned to her and Li'l T earlier and offers them a chance to rep their crew. Once impressed, Taye wonders if their talent would be up to that of The Glitterati. Li'l T make a noble comment regarding them, but Taye reels her back and comments to say it again later at night without a nightlight present. She then gives the player their crew card, reminding them to stay focus and keep being themselves.

Taye appears as a part of Flash4wrd in Dance Central 3. Aside from the three looks from Dance Central 2, Taye 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].

Taye introducing the player to their house party

In the Story mode, Taye was taken to the 1990s 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. She spent time at her house, started a house party with her sister, and created their own move (The House Party) once they completed the moves of the era. When she comes back to the present at the agency, it is in a state of emergency, and Li'l T fears that the lack of cleanup is what caused it. She also thinks of the consequences she will get from her parents, but Taye reminds her that she was not even born at the time to get those consequences, and furthers questions the state the agency is in. She later gets sent back to prehistoric times through the works of Dr. Tan, but gets sent back to the present again by DCI as the player traps Dr. Tan into the time warp and is seen lounging with Mo afterwards.

Dance Central Spotlight

Taye appears in Dance Central Spotlight as a playable character. She is one of fourteen characters available to play as within the game.

Personality
