JUST DANCE 2016 Tops My Teen's Holiday Wishlist #JustDance2016 #CG




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!


Jam packed with 40 hit songs, Just Dance 2016 will have you movin' and groovin' to today's hottest beats! Shake it to hits like "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars, "Cool For the Summer" by Demi Lovato, and "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor. Or, if you prefer a few old school tracks, get down to "You're The One That I Want" from the movie Grease or "Copacabana" by Frankie Bostello. There's a fabulous mix of songs appropriate for all ages! My favorite is "Want To Want" by Jason DeRulo, and both my girls agree that their favorite its "Heartbeat Song" by Kelly Clarkson.

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!


If you would like to learn more about Just Dance 2016 from Ubisoft, follow along on Facebook and Twitter. Also, check out more video on their website.

Is Just Dance 2016 on your holiday wish list this year?

  1. Momma's got some moves for sure :) Not that you even look like their momma there... more like the middle sistah or something :)
    Tell me you ain't listening to all about that bass? What? I swear someone needs to catch that lass together with Bieber and Miley and launch them to some distant planet with no air....

    1. Bwahaha! We do her song in my regular class, so it doesn't phase me anymore. Jason will change the station whenever the bass song comes on though, so anytime you are in the mood to launch some poptarts into space, give him a ring ;)

    1. Minecraft is still huge here too. Allison plays it almost daily and gets so man when her computer lags. I have half a mind to wreck her entire games with some of the fits she throws when playing it.

  4. Love the Just Dance games. We own several for the Wii, however since we got an Xbox 360 last year, we haven't updated to that system yet - the Wii was moved to my daughter's room, so hardly gets played anymore. Will probably buy Kinnect this year for Christmas so we can begin enjoying Just Dance again in the den! :)

    1. We keep ours in our spare bedroom so the girls don't fight over it. If we didn't have that extra room, I don't think we ever would have bought a gaming system. We wouldn't want them to play it on the living room tv all day, and heaven help us if one wanted to go into the others room to play.
