Features

The Goron Dance is located in the Goron Dance Hall, which is held inside the base of Rolling Ridge. The dance is hosted by a Goron who instructs seven Gorons within the dance hall. The minigame can be played in both the present and the past. In the present, it costs 10 Rupees to play, while in the past, it costs 20 Rupees.

The minigame involves the Gorons and Link following the moves of the dance instructor by moving left or right, or by striking a pose. However, Link has to keep up with the instructor's rhythm. If Link moves too late or too quickly, he will miss and lose his chance of getting a perfect score. Each round consists of eight moves.

The Gorons who dance professionally are called "Graceful Dancers," and that only people who dance well can be considered a Goron within the Rolling Ridge Goron tribe.[1] In the past, the dances are instructed by a red Goron, who is the first generation of Graceful Dancers.[2] In the present, a blue Goron instructs the dancers, who is the fifth generation.[3]

The prize for dancing with no flaws is the Brother Emblem, which proves Link's worth to the Gorons. After acquiring the Brother Emblem, the Goron who blocks the stairway from "non-brothers" allows Link to pass.[4] Afterwards, Link can dance again to win Rupees, Gasha Seeds, and Magic Rings.
