Dizzy Dancing is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on the movie Dirty Dancing.


The record on which the players are standing starts spinning, thus knocking them all into their corners; as a result, the players are now dizzy.


The players have to grab the clef hovering over the center of the record. Due to the players' dizziness, the controls are altered, and players have to figure out how each direction on the controller translates to the screen. Players can jump on, punch, or ground-pound their opponents to stun them temporarily. The first player to grab the clef wins. If nobody grabs the clef when the timer reaches zero, the clef floats away off the top of the screen and the minigame ends in a draw.

In Mario Party 2, this minigame can be bought for 150 coins.

Gameplay in Mario Party: The Top 100 is different. Players now compete for points in this minigame. Each clef players grab is worth one point, and a new one spawns in another location. After 30 seconds, the player with the most points wins.


The winner does their signature victory animation while the other players do their losing animations. There is a separate screen in The Top 100.
