AllMusic Review by

Oriented toward the teen market, Dance Party 2010 includes both a CD and DVD filled with some of the year's most popular contemporary dance-pop hits in the United Kingdom. The 21-track CD includes a mix of British and American artists. Some of the British dance-pop highlights include Jay Sean's "Do You Remember," Sugababes' "Wear My Kiss," N-Dubz's "I Need You," and Tinchy Stryder's "You're Not Alone." Some of the American dance-pop highlights include Lady Gaga and Beyoncé's "Telephone," Black Eyed Peas' "Rock That Body," Kesha's "Tik Tok," and Rihanna's "Take a Bow." There are also some international highlights: Justin Bieber's "One Time" (Canada), Jedward's "Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)" (Ireland), Gabriella Cilmi's "On a Mission" (Australia), and Madcon's "Beggin'" (Sweden). All in all, it's a great mix of teen-oriented contemporary dance-pop hits. The DVD includes videos of all the songs, some of them quite extravagant, in particular Lady Gaga and Beyoncé's "Telephone." In addition, there are three segments called "learn the dance routines" that instruct viewers how to do the dances for Cheryl Cole's "Fight for This Love," JLS' "Beat Again," and the Pussycat Dolls' "When I Grow Up." While many television-marketed dance music compilations like this boast about their selection of hits, Dance Party 2010 fulfills its promise with a full album's worth of bona fide hits by many of the year's top pop stars.
