As many of you know, Mariah and I take Hip Hop Dance classes twice a week. For us, dancing is an awesome way to get fit while having fun! Since our instructor is only available twice a week, we have to find alternative fitness routines to keep in shape on all the other days. With our love of dancing, it's a no-brainer that we play the Just Dance video games at home to keep our exercise flow going the rest of the week. Ever since the very first Just Dance game was released, we've been hooked, and both girls have requested the newest version every Christmas since. It's one traditional gift that they can count on receiving each year from us and they would be pretty disappointed if a holiday went by without a new version under the tree. Luckily, Just Dance 2016 was just released, so Christmas came a little early for my girls this year!
The graphics are bright and engaging, and I love that they put the song lyrics at the bottom of the screen so you can sing along. Additionally, instructional moves are displayed at the bottom as well to make it easier to follow along with the dancer in the center of the screen.
It's hard to get an overall feel of the game through photos alone, so I tossed together a little clip of us doing a few dance routines from 3 of the songs from Just Dance 2016. Now, we only did one practice run on the songs before taping to show that it's not too hard to pick up on learning the routines. However, we didn't perfect them after the first run, so be gentle on us if you watch, hehe!
See, you really do get a good workout while having fun!
Just Dance 2016 is available on all motion-controlled gaming platforms, including Xbox 1, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Wii U, and Wii. Just in time for the holidays, I think it would make a fantastic stocking stuffer for your teen, or really, anyone who loves to dance and have fun!
