The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Breakdancing


The breakdancing hobby unlocks when you complete the salsa dancing hobby for the first time which unlocks once a dance to remember quest has been completed.

For a limited time: complete the hobby in 7 days to unlock the DJ booth

NOTE: You have 7 days from the moment you finish the quest so selecting not now will still start the timer!

You still receive the breakdancing themed item pack even if you don’t complete in the time limit

Who can breakdance?

Adults and teens

Only one sim can breakdance at a time

How can they breakdance?

By completing the salsa dancing hobby you can then buy the breakdancing boombox for S5000 from promotions r us

Where can you breakdance?

At the house where the boombox is

What are the options?

Quick Break- 1 hour 30 minutes

Long Break- 10 hours  30 minutes

What are the levels?

  1. Biting Breaker
  2. Foundation Fanatic
  3. Power Move Monster
  4. Clean and Dope
  5. Fresh Flava
  6. Legendary Style Head

Is the limited prize worth it?
No its really not, it is so expensive- S100,000! And a sim doesn’t even seem to be able to dance while another is DJing

What do you win?
First time you unlock the breakdancing themed items set, it seems to just be lights, wallpaper and flooring



I was hoping for some breakdancing outfits!

Further times you receive 5LPs

I cant find one of the items, any tips?

The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random

It it worth using lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

Hope this helps!

  1. Not about post:

    So my simtracker button disappeared and I can`t get it back. Do you know a way I can get it back?

  2. For the salsa dancing hobby, how do you get to the villa? My sim was sent home and no other sim was there.

    ~ Jessica

    • You can’t get to the villa for the hobby, once you have completed the quest you can no longer access the villa- unless you complete the hobby in the 7 day time limit and buy one for your own town.

  3. How do I get the Spanish villa, it is a reward for finishing the dancing quest.

  4. Thank you for posting this!

  5. My Salsa quest suddenly switched to the ghost hunter quest and when I finished that, it went to the Seniors quest. The Sim from the future wants to go to the snow park, but my game hasn’t let me build anything since refusing the high school. It keeps saying I can’t build because “Stable” is already being built in Sim Town. I have no idea what it’s talking about. This is a timed quest. I would like to be able to finish it. Help,!!!

  6. How do I get access to this quests? I see the “overview” advert that says “get started” but don’t see any way to do that? I have rebooted the game. Uploaded/saved data to the cloud and deleted/reinstalled the game..I can’t see to find it. (In the “active tasks” section, I only see the weekly and neighbor options..) What am I doing wrong, where should I look?

    thanks in advance.

    • what quest? the post you are commenting on is a hobby.
      Are you taking about the a dance to remember quest? that unlocks the salsa dancing and this hobby? To start that you need to go to the park and click on the dancers.

  7. I have been growing weary of all the back to back timed quests and hobbies since the magic one, but I wanted the villas unlocked, so I finally gave up and used 6LP’s on a lucky spin for the salsa hobby and got lucky the first try! (whew). I am also unimpressed with the prize on the breakdancing hobby. I’ll complete it, but not within the time limit unless I do it on my own. I wanted to thank you so much for the advice on earning LP’s though! Very helpful, I have most of my sims working on hobbies and it’s really paying off! Your blog is an awesome resource!

  9. Just thought I’d point out that the Breakdancing themed pack also includes new flooring and wallpaper. Also thanks so much for the frequent blog updates , without the foreknowledge of the dance to remember quest (growing pumpkins and hibernating) I wouldn’t have been able to finish the tasks early and unlock the rugs, so thanks!☺

  10. Please help me, I finished the dance quest and can’t find the villa. I’ve had houses on all my lots at one time so when I click on an empty lot the various house options don’t come up.b it’s not in the home store or my inventory. Please please help!

  11. Dear if we completed this quest not in 7days (i dont really want that dj table after you describe it as not worth it) will we still get the breakdance theme like floor and walls design? Thank you

  12. Do you use the sims game connected to your Facebook? Because I’ve looked at your town and some of the quests you have completed and posted you haven’t even built the place it talks about. I’m just confused as to how you are doing that?

    • Yes I have, but only my second game is connected to facebook
      My first game is the one where I have done the life dreams quest and the book of spells quest which I have completed but that game is connected to my game center- which is full so I can’t add anymore people.

  13. Do you get the villa for free? Once you finish the salsa hobby in time p?

  14. I can’t find the boombox anywhere. Not in the hobby center and not in any of the sections of the house store if you get what I’m saying. Am I missing something obvious? Thanks for all your hard work. It really helps.

  15. Umm, How Can You Start Doing The Breakdancing Hobby, Cause About A Week Ago I Finished The Salsa Dancing Hobby. The Adverts Come Up Of Breakdancing Then Says Get Started Now, But Whenever I Press ‘ Get Started Now ‘, It Just Goes Back To My Town?

  16. When I finished the dance to remember quest I selected ‘Not Now’ to the breakdancing hobby. Now I cannot find the boom box (it is not in Promotions R Us store) to be able to begin working towards the breakdancing hobby. I tried closing out the app and restarting a couple of times. Any suggestions?

  17. hi, your blog is REALLY helpfull! i just had a question. i saw at this post that you said that lucky spin isnt worth it? what is the “lucky spin” ???
    where i find it???

    • lucky spin is where you use LPs to find an item
      If you look at the hobby collection you will see the LP symbol next to each row, if you click that it will give you a random item in that row

  18. Not in either, unfortunately

  19. The DJ booth is is really not worth it. You already have one when you build the Sims night club and while your Sim is Dj’ing you can have your other Sims dance. The best part is that while your Sims are dancing they are socializing at the same time. A fast and good way to keep their friendships up.

  20. Is there ANY benefit to completing the breakdancing hobby within 7 days? I’m just wondering why they bothered putting a limit on it if you get the same items at the same cost (nothing free) whether you finish in 7 days or 17 days. I was actually considering using LP’s for this. I have 1 day left and 3 trophies remaining. But what I am taking from what you wrote is that there is no benefit at all to finishing on time.

  21. For 4 days now I have had all the trophies except the very last one. For some reason it’s not giving me the last trophy. Could this be a glitch or extremely bad luck?

    • extremely bad luck, just keep trying you will get it eventually

    • I am in the same boat. Have used way too many LPs, including lucky spins and just get the same stupid trophies even though she has been at 100% skill for 5 days. I have literally had one chick doing Quick Break dang near constantly and for 4 days now trying to get the One last trophy. Same for salsa quest. I must have really bad luck, the salsa quest kept getting same trophies over and over; I didn’t stand a chance to finish in time. Whatevs. I want my LPs back! Ha

      • I did the same and didn’t finish in time. I had one left. I hate to lose anything, but I think I can live without that prize lol. The nightclub is an awesome alternative🙂

    • Same boat for me, too. I’m so pleased you think the reward isn’t worth it – now I’m not fussed on doing it within 7 days. I never have any luck with these timed hobbies.

    • It seems like I am stuck in the same place as you, and its been WEEKS for me! The last one: bottom row on the right?! I hope you have succeeded by now!

  22. You should figure out a way to connect the one you use constantly to your Facebook I wish I could see your town as a reference to what it should like in higher levels and I don’t even have an iPhone so I don’t even know what a game center is..

  23. To this one that we can see or a different Facebook?

  24. Thanks for your wonderful blog. Like Rebecca I have been waiting days to get the last breakdancing trophies. I was down needing 2 about 3 days before the end if the “get DJ booth” time. Now a day over and finally got one of the 2 I still needed.
    Thanks for the comments about the “lousy” DJ booth prize, it meant I wasn’t upset when the deadline passed….. Now if only my Sim can get that last trophy!

  25. i LOVE the breakdancing lights!!! 👍👏 they are so cool!

    i missed them along the way. teehee

  26. I just wasted 6 LPs on this quest just to get a trophy. Good thing I have read this before proceeding into using another spin in order to complete the last set. The booth is freaking expensive. I’d rather build a night club than this. Thank you very much for the enlightenment! 🙂

  27. I was hoping for breakdancing clothes too! I wanted to dress my Sim in the outfit he puts on when he breakdances. Oh well. Thanks again for your always helpful posts!

  28. I just finished the dance to remember quest, but now I can’t find the breakdancing boombox at careers r us to start the breakdancing quest.

  29. Sim is 100% since 3 days (I have one day remaining), I need 3 more trophies and last 3 days I didn’t get a single new trophy. Very, very frustrating…

    • I needed one more piece when the deadline passed… First attempt after THE deadline… Yes… i got the piece. I don’t believe in bad luck… EA doesn’t like me because i don’t spend money…

  31. This blog has been so helpful

  32. I am doing the breakdancing quest and got the boom box. Do I need to purchase the breakdancing mats also? Can’t find a reference to them here.
    Keep up the good work young lady. –

  34. Thanks for the post! Needed it to see what the prize ‘home pack’ included.

  35. If you can find a neighbor who has unlocked the breakdancing hobby, you can have a second sim do it in their town. Doubles your chances of finishing the hobby on time.

  36. The lucky spin never works!!! I did a cloud save before I used it, and I have one medal left for this hobby. Every time I don’t get the medal I need, I reset the game then go to the cloud save. I keep doing the spin but it lands on the other two medals of Level 4 everytime and it’s really annoying.

  37. I didn’t complete the salsa dancing hobby within the time limit so was unable to unlock the Spanish villa. Long shot but is there ANY way to unlock it after the quest is finished or any chance of the villa coming up again in future do you think?

  38. It tells me I need to do the cheer on task for the juke box but it won’t let me my sims say no and won’t do it. I don’t know what to do the dancers are in the park and not clickable and I re did the ratings at the table task and still nothing. I’m running out of time.. Help!

  39. Okay, so like I can’t find the breakdancing outfits. They said it would be available as soon as I finish the hobby and I did. I can’t find them.

  40. I completed the salsa dancing quest and unlocked the Hobby but am unable to do the hobby because i can’t find the jukebox! When i go to promotions r us, it says I can’t have more than one jukebox per simtown. But don’t have it anywhere! Not in my inventory or any homes. I thought it meant the one at the villa, but after reading these comments…I can’t go back to the villa since i completed the quest. Please help!

  41. The jukebox is not in the promotions r us store. Where else can I look?

  42. I am looking for a neighbor who has the breakdancing boombox! I have one, it’s in my Latin Villa. My Game Center ID: msdmso

  43. I don’t have a boom box, even though I finished the salsa quest (not in time, I missed out on the villa) I have a teen now, and a breakdancing mat, but no boombox so he can’t dance!!! What other hobby can he do? I don’t have a snow park yet, I just built the high school. Also, where can I get the boom box?

  44. I’m glad I read this, the salsa hobby all but drove me nuts trying to collect all the trophies in time. Had to use a LOT of Lps on the lucky spin otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to complete it in time.
    This one, however, is much harder. Been trying to collect trophies for 4 days and I just keep getting the same 3 all the time.
    I’ve almost unlocked all the levels yet I’m getting nowhere.
    I definitely don’t want to waste Lps this time and I’m glad you don’t think the prize is worth stressing over so I’ll just relax and not worry about the time limit.
    Thanks for the tips, you’ve made playing this game a lot easier.
