The game will include a host of new features, as explained in the Harmonix blog:

In Dance Central 3, players get sent back in time to dance their way through the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s and beyond – learning popular dance crazes like “The Hustle,” “Electric Slide” and “The Dougie,” alongside the hottest moves from today. The beat keeps rocking with an innovative new party mode for up to eight players, the ability to import your songs from previous Dance Central titles, and more! The best full-body dance experience on Kinect for Xbox 360 is better in every way with Dance Central 3!

Dance Central 3 features brand new ways to play with your friends, including the innovative Crew Throwdown mode. With support for up to eight players, Crew Throwdown pits two teams of up to four dancers head-to-head in a series of performances, dance battles, and fresh mini-games to prove who’s the hottest crew on the dance floor! Crew Throwdown features innovative gameplay, including the all-new rhythm-tracking Keep the Beat mini-game and Make Your Move, which will have players competing head-to-head as they create fresh routines on the fly!

With more than 40 tracks on the disc, Dance Central 3 features the most exciting and diverse soundtrack in the franchise to date, including:
