You do not HAVE to have the dance mat, but if you chose to - it has to be the official DDR or Active Life Outdoor Challenge mat. A universal mat will not work.

we don't have the dance mat
My daughter and husband like to walk on the board while using the controler & numchuck to control what they do
I like just using the controler and numchuck... that way on the tunes I like I walk dance... can't do that on the Wii board.

I use numchuck and remote and do dance steps for some of the songs. I recently realized it was helping to stabilize my arthritic knees better than just walking so For me it's even healthier. LOL

I have used all 3 and personally found the remote and nunchuck was the easiest for me to use. It also allows me the freedom to WIO with my little ones under foot and step over them as a hazard. I also incorporate different steps (think Leslie Sansom steps) on the slower songs to target other muscle groups.

Yes, all 3 methods work, but me & my daughter WAY prefer the mat to accurately count the steps.

No, you do not have to have the mat. You can use it 3 different ways: with mat, with Wii Fit balance board, or with remote & nunchuck. I prefer the remote & nunchuck method; but all 3 work. I really like WIO. Hope you will too.

I don't have it, but I know you can play it without the mat. My daughter has it and loves it. Pam

I have a questio about the walk it out game for the wii. I would like to get it but I read that you have to have that dance mat to play it so is it true? I need to know so I can get them both.

I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
