In this add on, you will add code that lets the user turn the dancer by pressing different keys.

Wouldn't it be cool if you could make the dancer spin or turn while they are dancing?

To get started, you'll need a key press event.

Drag out a when key press block from the events tab and select the right arrow from the drop down menu.

Now when the arrow key is pressed, something will happen.

In this example, the key press makes the sprite turn clockwise 15 degrees.

To make that happen, drag out a turn clockwise block from the motion menu and connect it to the when arrow press block.

Time and test this code by clicking the green flag, then pressing the right arrow.

Sweet! Cassie's turning clockwise when I press the right arrow key.

You can also make this dancing sprite turn in the other direction when a different key is pressed.

Drag out the turn counter-clockwise block and another key press event.

Change the key press event to when the left arrow key is pressed.

Test out the code and see if it works.

Look at that! Cassie turns left and right now.

Now it's your turn.

Add at least 2 key press events and 2 turn blocks to make Cassie turn clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Make it your own and try adding other key press events to control different effects on Cassie's dance moves.
