    The "Dance King" is located in the Sunshine Club at the top of the Forest. When you try to go in, a robot will reject you for not having enough swag / style. All you have to do is go to the shop, buy the pair of sunglasses, put them on, and then you will be able to enter the club.

    Once your in, just go over to the left and challenge him. For the actual challenge you just have to press the correct button at the right time. It's fast, and will likely take several tries, especially the last part. Be patient and try not to spam the buttons too fast.

    NOTE - If you make any mistakes and continue on with the game, then you will have to start a new game because the robot will breakdown and you won't be able to challenge it again. I recommend pressing the Xbox button to bring up the guide and quitting out of the game. You'll be able to continue from the checkpoint right before the dance.

    Mr Splash did a video for this one, but it doesn't explain how to get in the club. It just shows the actual gameplay. I'll provide it anyways in case people are wondering what that is like.

    F34R X L3G3NDThis has to be one of the worst achievements I have done I tried everyone's advice but all i can say is just do what you are comfortable doing it as if its sound on or off.. the only advice I will give is.. if you mess something up keep going get used to the other buttons yet to come you can finish the dance and still have time to dashboard and load back up again so if you miss a button keep going get the feel for the others and also you can get 109/110 and the achievement will pop!! GOOD LUCK

    Born Again GenSpamming does void the progress, even with all the button presses youll end up with around 80% at the AYAYAYAY part. My suggestion would be to slow it down and have controlled presses. It's actually not as fast as it appears.

    corpirateI struggled with the final section also - until I counted how many sets of AY presses there were (there are 8).

    As you hit the AYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY section just count on the A hits in your head to the beat.. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and as soon as you hit 8 you should only have a Y press left to finish.

    Did it first try once I followed this. I also used my fingers rather than thumb.

    Fl0ydPinkert0n’s guide has the details pretty well, but I’m embarrassed to say it still took me a few hours to grab this one. It sounds like people with keyboards get through more easily, but I was stubbornly using my controller. Oh well, at least the song is catchy.

    For those stuck on the AYAYs at the end, I recommend trying with volume off. I found it easier to get the timing right on the button presses when I didn’t have the rapidfire keyboard notes playing in the background. Admittedly the music helped for the rest of the dance, but I ended up playing with sound off and got through in far fewer attempts than I had failed with the music on.

    Cheers, I know this is a tough one and different people will have better luck with different approaches. I’m just hoping this helps some of you out.

    AllgorhythmThumbs up. Great guide. The video helps get your timing right. I just replayed the short segment beginning at 20'27'' in part 2 of the walkthrough to get the timing of that last pesky segment right. It was certainly a lot easier than replaying the dance sequence in the game and having to dashboard each time. This is the URL of part two beginning at the 20'27" mark for those who want to go directly there: https://youtu.be/Vj7gn2Gxgfk?t=1227. The dance itself begins at the 19'29" mark at URL https://youtu.be/Vj7gn2Gxgfk?t=1169.

    DarkDragonEye7Muting the game was definitely he way to go, I think the AYAYAY part does not match the music and thats what made it so hard. With your suggestion it only took me a handful of tries to get it clap

    If you complete the dance battle without a perfect score, you will need to start a new game as the dance battle is not replayable. To avoid this issue, if you make a mistake back out to the home screen and close the game. Reopening the game will start you back just before the dance battle.

    The dance battle is a required part of the story in the Forest. You will need to purchase sunglasses at the shop, so you are cool enough to enter the club. Now, challenge the Dance King and get ready to boogey. This is a rhythm mini game, where you need to push the correct face buttons as they enter the circle on the left side of the screen. The button pattern is always the same and you can keep replaying this using the method mentioned earlier until you get a perfect score.
