Get Setup

The quickest way to get started is to follow these two steps:

  1. Send an email requesting a temporary avatar, good for 10 days for you to try out some dancing. We'll send you a username and password. It's all free.
  2. Login to what? You need a "viewer" This is free software, kind of like a web browser (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Firefox...). It handles the 3D graphics. Your trial avatar is all set up on the Firestorm viewer (though it can also be used with the Second Life viewer).

Firestorm viewer: Download the Firestorm viewer — This is the most popular viewer, and alternative to the primary viewer.

Second Life viewerDownload the primary viewer made by Linden Lab — Linden Lab invented Second Life so their viewer is the primary viewer. It is less complicated than the popular alternative.

Once you've installed the viewer and started it up, you'll see spaces at the top or bottom of the window to enter the username and password. Ignore everything else, and click Log In. 

If you encounter any problems, please email us.
