Dance Praise is a series of dance video games developed by Christian video game developer Digital Praise, with a particular emphasis on Contemporary Christian music. Peter Fokos, CTO of Digital Praise, started the Dance Praise series after his daughter asked him to create a dance game with Christian music for her homeschool exercise program. This series was created to allow children to enjoy dance games with music "fit for young [Christian] ears".[1]



As with other dance games such as the Dance Dance Revolution series, arrows approach a target zone on the bottom of the screen, and the player must step on the corresponding arrow on the dance pad when arrows reach the target zone. Players are judged on their accuracy and timing.

Dance Praise (rebranded as Original Dance Praise when the second version was released), was the first game in the series, released on September 29, 2005.[1] A multiplayer version was also created, Dance Praise Party, supporting up to 10 players.,[2]
