FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST
please read before asking
How do I start this discovery quest?
Find the dancers in the park
Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed
Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can
Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest
I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like
Help! I used the wrong aged sim to watch the dancing couple, now I can’t enthuse, what should I do?
Try using two adult sims to enthuse, if you still don’t get the option you may need to contact the makers
I left the villa, how do I get back?
Use the car at the park
I explored the villa but the roof is still on, how do I eat hors d’oeures?
You will need to contact the makers to see if they can fix this for you as I am unable to fix technical issues
My sims won’t cheer on the fantasias, why?
If they are still in the park you won’t be able to complete this goal. Have all sims leave the villa and go back to the park, restart your device and hopefully the dancers should have left the park. Go back to the villa using the car to cheer them on.
The task have two pairs of sims chatting won’t complete, why?
Are you sure you used 2 pairs of sims? (4 sims)
What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work
Do you get to keep the cat you rescue?
No, you never see the cat
All sims left the villa but it didn’t complete the task, what should I do?
Try and have all your sims not doing any action, this sometimes makes the game recognise you have completed that goal
What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the salsa dancing hobby before you can move onto the next quest
I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests
Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit
I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it
Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal
Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
This quest unlocks the salsa dancing hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down
NOTE: the breakdancing hobby timer starts as soon as you complete the salsa dancing hobby

Can I keep the villa once I finish the quest
Not this quest but if you complete the salsa dancing hobby in the time limit you will unlock the villa.
Can I use a baby to hibernate for this quest?
I don’t know for this update unfortunately as they change it often to whether a baby hibernating completes this goal or not.
The baby worked! I got credit for the task once she came out of hibernation. 🙂
I’m glad it worked! 🙂
When i click “cheer on” on the jukebox, blue footprints appear over my sims head, but there is nothing in the way. how do i fix this?
Send the sim home then back to the park, use the car to go back to the villa, hopefully it will work this time!
I can’t go back to the villa! The car is gone when my sims are at the park and not. My car (three star) can’t get there either.
Are you on a goal in this quest which requires you to go to the villa? If not, you will not be able to get there.
please help me, i haven’t done the mission a dance to remember. i want to finish the mission. can i back to the villa again? How to back the villa? because one of my sims have a baby and i have the new mission with the nanny. but the nanny not respone if i haven’t done the mission a dance to remember.
You need to use the car at the park to get back to the villa.
I can’t “cheer on” (with the salsa jukebox) because when I click on it it says it can’t get on it. Help?
Send your sim home from the villa and back to the park then use the car again to get back to the villa, the dancers should appear and you should be able to complete these task.
When I try to interact with the salsa dancers my sims refuse to respond and it won’t let me cheer them on.
Have you tried what I have said in the post? Send your sim home from the villa and back to the park then use the car again to get back to the villa, the dancers should appear and you should be able to complete this task.
I went to a neighbor town and accept the quest. But I can’t remember who it was that i visited. Now I can’t find the dancing couple anywhere
You cannot complete this in a neighbours town so it shouldn’t have let you, if you cannot find the dancing couple in your park then you will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this issue for you.
Thank you it worked! And sorry for posting twice I accidentally hit the button to times😬
I have completed the quest.and left the villa at the end, but my quest did not end .It still is showing leave the villa.I can’t find the red car at the park side road either.please help me.
Unfortunately I am unable to fix technical issues like this, you will need to contact the makers to see if they can fix this issue for you, this post explains how to contact them: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2016/05/29/the-sims-freeplay-contacting-ea-firemonkeys/
I don’t know how to bring my sims to the park. How can I start to watch the dancing couple at the park?
To bring a sim to the park you need to click on the whistle on the simtracker next to a sim who isn’t busy.
It won’t let me build the health club because It says I need to complete the dance to remember quest first. I started the quest but didn’t finish it in time. What can I do? I really want the health club?
You still need to complete the dance to remember quest even if you don’t finish it in the time limit before you can move onto another discovery quest. Complete the quest and then you will be able to build the health hub.
I only did one pair of sims chat to each other and they finished chatting and the quest said two pairs of sims chatting so sense I already one pair of sims can I just do another one pair
Yes you can just use one more pair and it will complete.
After we complete this quest, can we ever return to the villa again?
No but if you complete the salsa dancing hobby in the time limit you will unlock the villa to build in your own town: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/01/07/the-sims-freeplay-hobbies-salsa-dancing/
I don’t have the pet store yet, will I still be able to rescue the kitten?
You don’t need the pet store for this.
I’m a newbie and currently at level 23. I made a mistake and just have a pair of sims chat amd i am so frustrated bcoz it took 10hrs30mins to complete and i didnt realize until they finished chatting. My question is, if I have to make a pair to chat again will it be added to the previous completed pair? Or worse i will have to do it all over again?
Yes using one more pair of sims will complete this task
Hi thank you for answering my previous question! I have another on though. What do you mean by this (it’s from the goals that can be started early)?
“The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work”
Sorry if I’m a little slow to this. lol
Lets say you wanted to complete the grow pumpkins task, it takes a day so starting this early will save you a day in this quest.
When you are on the task have two pairs of sims chatting you can have a sim go to a different house and start growing pumpkins, you need to stay away from that house until you get the goal to grow pumpkins. Once you get the goal go to that house and complete the task straight away, saving you 24 hours.

I can’t seem to find the red car at the park to ‘drive to the villa’, have tried different sim on the park but there’s no red car at all
Have you tried leaving the park, force closing the game and returning to the park?
Hi! I’m on level 40 and haven’t completed the the dance to remember quest. The people are not dancing in the park and I can’t build anything until I complete this quest. Is there any way start the quest?
You can’t build anything until you complete this quest makes me think that you have already started this quest, check your active tasks tab to see what goal you are on as you may have started it without realising.
What happened to the prize? It used to be the villa itself 😦
The latin villa is the prize if you complete the salsa dancing hobby in the time limit not the quest: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/01/07/the-sims-freeplay-hobbies-salsa-dancing/
I just want to clarify, based on what I’ve read on here about the Breakdancing Hobby time limit and the Musical Expressions Hobby time limit that begin after these Discovery Quests, those two hobbies only need to be completed once within the time limit. Is that correct? Unlike the Aerobics Hobby that required it to be completed 7 times within the time limit? Hope that makes sense.
That is correct.
