The remarkable, and still growing, international attendance has established the IHRSA event as the premier international program for the health club industry, both in the US and in the overseas marketplace.

The exciting official release of the much anticipated Positive Gaming iDANCE2 software recently took place at IHRSA 2010 in San Diego, California. Members of the Positive Gaming team gathered with some of the nation's best dancers to demonstrate the robust set of features that reside within the new Positive Gaming iDANCE2 software. The Positive Gaming iDANCE2 system, which was shown in cooperation with our partner, Gopher Sport, drew constant attention from the show floor - the wide selection of new music and general excitement generated by those playing was a highlight of the event.

On many occasions during the show, people brand new to the concept of a multiplayer dance system played alongside some of the most experienced dancers in the nation through the utilization of the multiple difficulty levels simultaneously. Features such as pause and rewind allowed demonstrators to teach the concept to those attendees that were new to it - just as a teacher would teach a group fitness class. The event was a huge success in many regards and Positive Gaming would like to thank everyone that aided in such a successful release!


"The Positive Gaming iDANCE2 Multiplayer System adds a new dimension to dance games and was created in a manner that gives it the potential to have a positive influence on some of society�s largest problems, including obesity." said Ole Petter H�ie, Managing Director of Positive Gaming AB.
