Club Fantastic provides high-quality, free-to-play, and legally-unencumbered tracks for the competitive dance game community. Inspired by In The Groove (ITG), our content is both tournament-ready and welcoming to newcomers.
Club Fantastic: Synthetic Dance 2020, our first release, is ready to install on any PC and gives you an instantly playable StepMania setup. We've built on the community-standard Simply Love, included our songs and high-quality arrow designs, then put it all together in one package – making it easy to bring home the club and start dancing.
If you're an existing In The Groove or StepMania player, you can also download our content packs separately.

It's 2020: the dance game community is playing at home with StepMania. Club Fantastic is our way of providing the scene with completely fresh songs, steps and art – with an attention to quality and without any legal concerns. Furthermore, it’s a way for us to give something back to the grassroots ITG movement and pay homage to a series that changed dance games forever.
We know it can be hard to get started with StepMania – for outsiders, it's tough finding songs, installing themes, and setting things up like the arcade. Our all-in-one package makes it easy to get stepping.
Also – you might notice we refer to Club Fantastic: Synthetic Dance 2020 as “Season 1”. We plan to continue the series with a Season 2 release in early 2021!
Note that our all-in-one installer includes step files with the ITG +9ms bias, making it easier to play ITG-style content. If you're experiencing problems with songs being off sync, read our notes about sync troubleshooting.
Our tracks should work with any version of StepMania, but you'll get the best experience with StepMania 5. The Full Windows Installer and Portable Package both include our custom build of StepMania 5.

The current version is Release 4, uploaded on 11/21/2020. We keep a change log describing content updates, bug fixes, and new features.
Club Fantastic is lucky to involve incredible electronic musicians and step artists.
