Just Dance

My reservation for Just Dance became available at the library and I had a chance to test it out this weekend.

I tried the game with a partner and found that we had less issues with space than we had with our previous attempts at Dance on Broadway. Like Dance on Broadway, there was a variety of levels. We stayed with the lower level routines in our first outing. Unlike the Broadway version, I liked most of the song selections. It seemed like they had the financing to pick songs that would work with the dance program, not just songs they could afford to stay on budget.

I am thinking that I will purchase this one and perhaps pass on the Broadway game. I still have the Just Dance 2 on reserve at the library to try before purchasing. I do not think it will sway me from buying the first. If anything I may end up with more than one dance workout game. Since I am starting at the easiest level, I have a long way to go before I will be bored with my options.

Good music and the ability to use this without a huge living space are important components of the game. Another important quality is the fun factor. We are more likely to play when the game is engaging. In addition, it seemed easier to understand why points were awarded and why you were not doing well than when we had tried the Broadway game.

I am thinking about trying this game with family when we get our own copy. I think it would be a fun way to get family members up, moving, and having some fun. There are different options of game play that allow for general play and action that is more competitive.


  1. I sooo want to get one of these dance games. It sounds so much better than a regular exercise routine, yet just as effective.

  2. Thanks for the review. We have love dance games in our home. It is a great way to bond as a family and to keep the kids active.

  3. Aw, I read your post and imagined your entire family having great fun together. I love how you are so family-centric. :-)

    Course, I bet your pups get involved, too.

    Have fun!

  4. Dance games sound like such a fun way to get a workout without feeling like you are working out. I bet my kids would have a blast laughing at mom while I did it too!

  5. I think it's so cool that you can borrow these from your library.

  6. I didn't know you could get them from the library. Good to know, thanks! I will have to try it out.
