With themed dancers depicted in silhouette and bright visuals, it’s doesn’t take itself or the competitive dancing too seriously. Giggling because you can’t get the moves right, or at parents strutting their stuff, Just Dance is a unique way to bring the family together to get fit and have a laugh.
Although the Just Dance games have developed over the years, you may want to pick one based on the songs they include. Like yearly greatest-hits albums, Just Dance picks popular songs from the year to dance to. There are also special editions focusing on Abba, Disney, hip and show tunes that can be a good option if you have fans of those genres.
Although the game is rated for children, it’s worth noting that the nature of some songs is more mature. Just Dance 2020 includes lyrics about alcohol and sex. There’s a ‘Kids Mode’ in recent versions of the game that provides dances tailored towards younger players and specially selected kid-friendly songs. There is also a Just Dance Kids series of the game with songs for even younger dancers.
Just Dance Now (iOS, Android, web browser, Apple TV or Chromecast) offers the Just Dance formula without the need for a console and lots of controllers. You load the Justdancenow.com page on your computer or television, then connect your smartphone app to play. The phone is your controller and you can play with as many people as you want, locally or online.
