Candy's Dance Studio is a mini-game exclusive to the remakes of Donkey Kong Country. In it, the Kongs have the opportunity to dance alongside Candy Kong in her Save Point.


Candy's Dance Studio replaces her Save Point from the Super Nintendo version of Donkey Kong Country, since players can now save via map screen. There is a Dance Studio in every area of Donkey Kong Island and a different song to dance to for each world. This game functions somewhat like Dance Dance Revolution and Parrapa the Rapper, only fitted to the GBA's button scheme. Players must press corresponding buttons as they go by the target and gain points, getting the bar segment as close as possible to the "Perfect" area. When the bar segment reaches within the "perfect" area, they are rewarded with a blue Extra Life Balloon.

In the GBA version, you will need ALL of your buttons for you to complete all of the in-game minigames of Candy's Dance Studio.

As the player progress, the dances get harder and more buttons are introduced. If they get close to the "perfect" section, they are rewarded with a photograph (for the first time) and lives. If the player actually does get a perfect on any of the stations, they receive a unique photograph.

Her studio has a distinct red and white banner with red and white draps with a wooden floor about four feet above the ground. Its big enough to hold six dancers, possibly nine. It is open air, so wherever Candy has placed her studio, the natural environment can be clearly seen.
