Club practices originally took place outside of concert rehearsals with plans to showcase their performances at concerts; members were to increase their repertoire and practice when allowed by their schedules. Since the summer of 2014, they now only assemble and rehearse as a part of Hello! Project concert tours. Footage of the club's rehearsals and concert performances are occasionally shown in episodes of Hello! Project Station.
On October 9, during episode #36 of Hello! Project Station, it was announced that the founding members of the dance club would be: Fukumura Mizuki, Sayashi Riho, and Ishida Ayumi from Morning Musume; Shimizu Saki and Natsuyaki Miyabi from Berryz Koubou; Yajima Maimi and Nakajima Saki from ℃-ute; Wada Ayaka, Fukuda Kanon, and Takeuchi Akari from S/mileage; and Takagi Sayuki and Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice. It was also revealed that the club would begin practice in December.
On December 17, Shimizu Saki announced that she was the leader of the dance unit.
On December 25, the first behind-the-scenes footage of dance club practice was shown in episode #47 of Hello! Project Station including comments from some of the members. Their instructor at the time was YOSHIKO.
From July 12 to September 6, the dance club had their first concert performance during Hello! Project 2014 SUMMER ~KOREZO!~ to a remix of ℃-ute's "Love take it all". The club performed without Fukuda Kanon leading to speculation that she had quit. From this point onwards, the club no longer rehearsed on their own time and would only assemble for concert tours.
In December, Inaba Manaka joined the dance club. This was also the first time that MASAO taught members the choreography. It was also confirmed at this time that Fukuda Kanon was no longer a member.
From January 2 to February 15, the dance club performed during Hello! Project 2015 WINTER ~DANCE MODE!~ to an original dance track. Wada Ayaka did not participate in this tour, but was still a member of the club. This was the last tour to feature Shimizu Saki in the dance club in accordance with her graduation from Berryz Koubou and Hello! Project on March 3. Her leadership was not directly passed on to anyone in the club.
From July 11 to August 29, the dance club performed during Hello! Project 2015 WINTER ~CHALLENGER~. Despite initially being included in rehearsals in June for the performance, Fukumura Mizuki and Takagi Sayuki were unable to participate and never returned to the club for future tours. This became the last tour to feature Sayashi Riho in the dance club as she graduated from Morning Musume on December 31. While she would remain in Hello! Project, Sayashi decided to take a break from entertainment activities immediately after her graduation and had therefore left the club.
From January 2 to February 20, the dance club performed during Hello! Project 2016 WINTER ~DANCING! SINGING! EXCITING!~. Miyamoto Karin did not participate during this tour, but was still a member of the club. This was the last tour to feature club members Tamura Meimi, who was scheduled to graduate from ANGERME and Hello! Project on May 30, and Inaba Manaka, who went on hiatus for health reasons on April 28 and suddenly graduated from Country Girls on August 4, leaving her status within Hello! Project unknown.
From July 16 to September 3, the dance club performed during Hello! Project 2016 SUMMER ~Sunshine Parade~. Yajima Maimi and Nakajima Saki had presumably left the dance club following the end of the tour, as it was ℃-ute's last Hello! Project concert tour before their disbandment in June 2017.
From January 3 to February 19, the dance club performed during Hello! Project 2017 WINTER ~Kaleidoscope~. This became the last tour to feature Fujii Rio in the dance club following the termination of her contract with UP-FRONT PROMOTION on July 6.
From July 15 to September 2, the dance club performed during both concert series of Hello! Project 2017 SUMMER. Kudo Haruka had presumably left the dance club following the end of the tour as it was her last Hello! Project concert tour before her graduation at the end of Morning Musume '17's upcoming fall tour.
