Just Dance

Just Dance is a series of movement-based video games. Players mirror a dance they can see on screen, in time to pop music. A player holds their console controller or smartphone while dancing, so it can track their movements. They earn points based on how well they perform. Just Dance is made by Ubisoft and is available on consoles such as Nintendo Switch and Xbox. There is also a mobile version.

The content in Just Dance is suitable for young children, however it has been said that some dance moves are ‘suggestive’ and the lyrics in some songs are worth parents being aware of – for example they may reference drinking.

More recent Just Dance games include ‘Kids Mode’, which allows children to play the game at a difficulty level that is appropriate for them. A player can pay a monthly or annual Just Dance+ subscription to access more songs.

The game can be played alone, or with other players who are with them using console controllers. With an online subscription, it is also possible to play some Just Dance games with other players online (who they may or may not know personally) and to communicate with them using ‘emote stickers’, which are unlockable reaction images.

A player may need a Ubisoft account to play Just Dance online. Parents can link their Ubisoft account to a child’s account to access the ‘Parental Access’ section of the account and from here they can manage safety settings, which are applied to their child’s account. Additional safety settings may be available through the gaming platform used to play Just Dance on e.g. Nintendo Switch.
