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 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.

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.
