Anyone can learn to dance - even Lego minifigures!

My wife and daughters love SCD almost as much as Lego, so I promised I would try and get Lego to make an official set!  It has huge fun and play potential, and the vibrant colours also make it a striking display piece.



Coach your minifigures in the training room backstage...  Make them look FAB-U-LOUS in costume and makeup - don't forget the spray tan!  Record their efforts on the dance floor in the LIVE SHOW using the Lego Movie Maker App!  Recreate 'Movies Week' and 'Halloween Week', or pick your own theme!

Recreate your favourite moments from past series of the sequin and glitter-filled show!  Who will be top of the leaderboard, or in the dreaded dance-off?  Who will score the first 10 from the judges?  Who's journey will go all the way and end lifting the famous glitter ball trophy?

Set features backstage dressing-room; hinge-out training room, with viewing balcony above; and hinge-out costume-making room and tanning booth (with revolving door and tan selector!), with interview area above.
