To earn the Bust A Move badge, you need to add a sprite that dances and plays music when clicked, but stops when the spacebar is pressed. When the sprite is clicked, it should play a sound until the sound is done, then repeat it. The music should keep playing until the spacebar is pressed. You will use the “next costume” block to make the sprite dance. This means you should only choose a sprite that has multiple costumes.

You'll see a list to choose from at the end of this screencast.

There are two "when this sprite clicked blocks" here because you want the sprite to start dancing AND play music when it is clicked. So, one block stack starts the dancing, and the other starts the music.

When the spacebar is pressed, all of blocks, or other code scripts, for this sprite should stop running. When the sprite's talent show time is over, it should stop doing anything at all. You can see some of the code you'll need to create here, but you have to find some of the blocks--that's where the scavenger hunt comes in! As long as your sprite dances and plays music when clicked, and stops doing everything when the spacebar is pressed, you will earn the "Bust a move" badge!

Remember to try out your code often as you build to see if it is doing what you want.

Now, it's your turn. After you have done these steps, put up your sticky and ask your CS First Guru for a Bust a Move badge!
