DDR stands for Dance Dance Revolution. Originally a popular activity for arcade-dwelling teens in Asia, it has now made its way into many high school gym classes around the country. To take advantage of the pulse-pumping activity at home, you'd need a TV and a game console (Sony PlayStation 2, Xbox, or GameCube), plus a DDR game of your choice. Getting started is easy: As the different arrows light up on the screen, you follow along by stepping on the correct arrows on the dance mat. Practice makes perfect; you'll probably find yourself looking for more complex games to play the longer you dance.
