Dancing is an extremely powerful form of self-expression and a great stress buster. GTA Online introduced Nightclubs that allow players to let loose and dance with their friends online.

The game has a great variety of chaotic match modes, that encourage players to blow things up quite often. However, GTA also offers the players plenty of options to sit back and have a nice time with friends without shooting anything.

GTA is no slouch in the dance department either, allowing you to bust a move depending on how much intensity you want. Timing is the key to a visually appealing dance at the Nightclub. To dance, simply go to a Nightclub in GTA: Online. You can find various nightclubs on the Map.

Nobody wants to look like an amateur, especially in a GTA: Online Nightclub. Nightclubs and Dancing were introduced in GTA: Online in the 'After Hours' update.

The dance controls are pretty simple. To dance, simply walk up to the dance floor and press "E" on your keyboard to begin dancing.

Tap the Left Mouse Button in time to build up the intensity, and use the Directional keys (W-A-S-D) to change dance moves.

Default Controls while dancing (PC):

  • Left Mouse Button/ Right Mouse Button: Hold Intensity
  • F: Drop Intensity
  • Q/E: Rotate
  • Ctrl: Perform Action
  • Wheel Up: Dance Style
  • Wheen Down: Switch Action
  • Tab: Show/Hide Controls
  • Esc: Stop Dancing

Keep an eye on your timing and you will be well on your way to becoming the next John Travolta in no time.
