Fortnite abandoned mansion Dance Off location: Where to compete in a Dance Off explained

Here's where to compete in a Dance Off at an abandoned mansion in Fortnite.

Completing a Dance Off at an abandoned mansion is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Fortnite Season 7 rewards.

If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Thankfully for this challenge you only need to have a Dance Off at just the one location, and it's pretty easy to find.

The spot you're looking for is the big, grey-bricked mansion to the east of the map. Specifically, it's in the far east of the map on the boundary between quadrant J5 and J6:

It's actually just south of the Lonely Lodge piano location, if that helps narrow things down!

Head inside the mansion from the front entrance and turn left, do go down the stairs to the mansion's basement.

The Dance Off 'stage' is set up there - we explain how to complete it in the section just below!

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

How to compete in a Dance Off at the abandoned mansion in Fortnite

For the Week 2 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Compete in a Dance Off at an abandoned mansion (1 total, 10 Battle Stars)

Once you've found the Dance Off stage itself, it's time to compete.

You'll need another player for it to work - to compete, you need to stand on opposite sides of the stage, and use a dancing emote on top of the square floor panels that light up.

Keep an eye on the floor then, and keep going until the Dance Off itself comes to an end, with one of you crowed the winner. It doesn't matter if you win or lose though: as long as you stick it out to the end you'll get the Challenge marked off as complete.

Note however that, as always, you need to complete the match in order for the challenge to be finished - quitting the match as soon as you collect it won't work.

If you're struggling, then we recommend playing Limited Time Modes, ideally those where you're part of only one of two teams - making it easier to explore the map without running into adversaries.
