How many just dances are there

All the Just Dance games on Switch

Music is everywhere, and dancing is joyous, so the Just Dance games are a wonderful last bastion to a vaguely static genre. Remember the heyday of music games? Guitar Hero, Rocksmith, DJ Hero… so much plastic, everywhere. Now, we’re past the peripheral era, but Just Dance remains, without a need for any peripherals, just a Switch Joy-Con.

Since its inception on the Wii in 2009, the game has just kept on trucking. It was on the Wii all the way up to 2020, astonishingly, and clearly holds firm as the best dancing game out there. But how many Just Dance games are available on Switch? And what songs do they include? That’s where we can help, with a handy list of them all.

Get ready for a groovy workout, and read on to find the song list that best suits you. Just be aware, some Just Dance games are no longer available on the Nintendo eShop, but their physical editions are available online for reasonable prices. It’s also important to note that some songs are only available via Just Dance Unlimited, just in case you’re struggling to find them.

The 6 Best Just Dance Games Of All Time

By Marie Pritchard

These Just Dance games have stood the test of time and still hold up as great choices.

Becoming a Superstar and falling over in your own home sums up Just Dance games. The game started life on the much-loved Nintendo Wii with later games being available on a variety of consoles. It was and still is, developed and published by Ubisoft. The aim of the game is to follow the movements of the dancer on screen and try to score points by being as accurate as possible.

RELATED: It's Time For Rhythm Games To Make A Comeback (On The Switch)

There have been 12 games in the main Just Dance series since then, not including spin-offs games and Japan Exclusives. The latest Just Dance games are good but many of the best songs are only available through having to pay extra money to access them in DLCs. Additionally, no new massively game-altering features or modes have been added since the 2018 edition. This is reflected in our choices.

6/6 Just Dance 2 - Released In October 2010

Just Dance 2, as the name suggests, is the second game of the franchise and is one of the best. The game was well-received by the public and a lot of praise was given to the addition of a new 'duet' mode for certain songs. The duet mode was designed to allow two people to dance together whilst following different avatars on the screen. The choreography in duet mode could vary depending on which dancer you chose to follow.

The song listings in the game were excellent too with many big names making the cut. The variety of songs were highly suited to the new dance battle mode. Up to eight players in two teams could compete against one another in the same song to become the ultimate dance machine.

5/6 Just Dance 2014  - Released October 2013

The fifth installment in the game series, Just Dance 2014 brought a variety of new stuff to the table for wannabe dancers to sink their teeth into. There are 50 songs in the main soundtrack of the game and certain songs have an 'on stage' mode. In this mode, one of you can act as the main star of the song whilst the others act as their backup dancers. It definitely makes you feel like a superstar.

An online multiplayer mode was added too and this allowed players around the world to compete against others on the same song. However, the online services for the game ended in late 2018. The only downside to this game for many fans was that other songs were added as DLC's but many felt it was unfair to have to pay for extra songs.

4/6 Just Dance 4 - Released October 2012

Just Dance four came out in October 2012. This was the first game in the franchise to be available on the Wii-U. A lot of features from the earlier games were dropped from this game in favor of focusing on improving the remaining modes.  Simon says mode and eight-player modes were among the ones that were removed.

In Just Dance 4, you have something called Dance Quests, and these consist of tasks that you need to achieve for each song. Once the tasks have been completed then you are rewarded with in-game points, known as Mojos. The complete song list is one of the best out of all of the games. The game even won the Favorite Videogame award at the Kids Choice Awards 2013.

3/6 Just Dance 3 - Released October 2011

The third game of the Just Dance franchise did not disappoint fans of the earlier games. It follows the same premise of having you follow the dancer on the screen to earn points and there are over 40 songs for them to choose from. With video games helping us to work out since the 1908's, it's no surprise that the franchise is so popular.

RELATED: Games Like Ring Fit Adventure On The Nintendo Switch

The Dance Crew mode was introduced in this game and this let up to four players dance together. This added to the worldwide feeling that Just Dance is an excellent party game. The soundtrack for this game is arguably almost iconic as there are a ton of classic songs on there. From Gwen Stefani to A-Ha, there are songs that span across decades and cater to many musical tastes.

2/6 Just Dance 2018 - Released October 2017

Just Dance 2018 is the ninth installment of the main franchise. This game added a whole new mode called 'Kids Mode' which created choreography designed for younger players. Again, this added to the family-friendly appeal of Just Dance games. A lot of the main soundtrack songs can be found in 'Kids Mode' with simplified dance moves.

The soundtrack to the game included over 40 hit songs that definitely bring a summer vibe to the game. Within the songs available, many of them have multiple dancers for you to choose from. One of the most noticeable things in Just Dance 2018 is the highly improved responses to your movements and this made the game much more enjoyable as well as more challenging.

1/6 Just Dance - Released 2009

The game that started it all is still one of the best, even with all of its spin-offs and sequels. It introduced the gaming world to the dancing franchise but surprisingly it was widely criticized for how simple it was. However, this was an instance where critics were proven wrong by gamers as it became a worldwide phenomenon. It sold over 4.3 million copies and became known as one of the best multiplayer games out there.

The soundtrack may be the most limited of all of the games but it's still one of the best. The game has classic hit songs that let you embody your favorite stars. From swiveling your pelvis as Elvis Presley to sassing your way to stardom as Britney Spears, there's something for everyone!

Dance and lose weight!

Contents of the article

You can think of dancing as something you do in a club on a Friday night. But in fact, dancing is a great way to exercise, burn fat, calories, and lose weight. Men Today has already written about how beneficial dancing affects well-being. If you're looking to add a few new moves to your workout plan, read on to find out how dancing can help you lose weight. nine0003

How many calories can you burn dancing?

As with most forms of exercise, faster and more energetic forms of dancing burn more calories than slower ones. For example, dancing hip-hop will expend more energy than waltzing. Here are some examples of how many calories you can burn in 30 minutes of dancing if you weigh 70 kilograms:

  • Ballroom dancing: 118 calories
  • Hip-hop: 207 calories
  • Salsa: 143 calories
  • Swing: 207 calories

The US Department of Health recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise each week. This is necessary for health benefits and weight loss.

So if dancing is your main form of exercise, the amount of time you spend doing it depends on how vigorously you do it. If you want to lose significant weight (lose 5 percent of your body weight or more), experts recommend at least 300 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. nine0003

Dance Variations and Weight Loss

There are many different types of dance, each with health benefits and potentially weight loss. Many gyms offer dance lessons, and online dance videos are available to help you figure out which form of dance is right for you. If you prefer free movement, you can simply turn on your favorite music in the living room and dance for 30 minutes or more. If your heart rate increases in the process, you burn calories. If you are interested in certain types of dance, here are some popular options for exercise and weight loss. nine0003


Zumba is a dance fitness program with Latin American and other international music. It is based on interval training, where fast and slow movements alternate. These short bursts of high-intensity exercise will burn even more calories than just dancing at a steady pace. Many fitness clubs and community centers offer zumba classes suitable for all fitness levels. Numerous studies also speak about the benefits of dance. For an hour of training, you can burn 400-500 kcal. nine0003

Hip-hop is a high-intensity, high-performance form of dance. It includes everything from breakdancing to modern dance moves. Some gyms may offer hip hop classes. Many dances in this style include repetitive movements, some of which are associated with a strong percussive load. These movements can lead to injury if done incorrectly or if you don't take time to rest between sessions. For an hour of training, you can burn 400-450 kcal. nine0003

Ballroom dancing

Ballroom dancing includes partner dances such as waltz, foxtrot or tango. Although there are many competitions in ballroom dancing, it is a great workout for amateurs. Visit your local community center or dance studio in your neighborhood to see if there are ballroom dancing classes you can attend. Ballroom dancing is low-impact, so it's a great way to get some aerobics if you have joint problems. The effectiveness of ballroom dancing is also confirmed by research. For an hour of training, you can burn 300-400 kcal. nine0003

Belly dance

During this type of dance, many muscle groups work. Moreover, the abdominal muscles are the hardest. In addition, the muscles of the shoulder girdle and back are strengthened. At the same time, the load on the joints and ligaments during classes remains minimal. Belly dancing will help you lose weight and tighten your figure. For an hour of training, you can burn 350-400 kcal.

Pole dance

This type of dance will allow you not only to relax, but also to lose weight. Classes include all types of loads: power, aerobic, stretching, elements of acrobatics. Dancing for weight loss on a pole tightens all muscle groups. So, the muscles of the arms and shoulder girdle, the press and muscles of the back, legs and buttocks, as well as the calf muscles are actively working. Classes improve flexibility, stretching, transform posture and gait. For an hour of training, you can burn 450-450 kcal.

Passionate Spanish dance sets a very fast pace, so that the process of losing weight will not seem monotonous and boring to you. In order to master flamenco, you need to learn how to beat a fraction, keep your back straight and arch your hands. After a few months of training, the hips and buttocks decrease in volume, and the calf muscles acquire a beautiful relief. Also, with the help of this dance, you can lose weight in the arms and neck. Other elements of flamenco, twists and turns, work out the muscles of the back. This will help you strengthen your spine. For an hour of training, you can burn 300-400 kcal. nine0003

We have prepared some tips to increase the effectiveness of dancing for weight loss. In particular, do not eat at least an hour before class so that you feel comfortable doing it. It is also recommended to drink a glass of water 20 minutes before the start of a dance workout. In addition, to maintain muscle 30-40 minutes after a workout, you need to eat a small portion of protein with carbohydrates.

Let's talk about the dance routine for weight loss. You can practice both in the morning and in the evening. However, if you practice intense dance loads in the afternoon, then it is better to perform them at least three hours before bedtime. To achieve the greatest results, you need to practice at least three times a week. nine0003

Is it possible to lose weight through dancing - a great way to lose weight


Getting rid of extra pounds is one of the tasks that many girls set themselves when signing up for a dance studio, while most of us associate weight loss with exhausting workouts in the gym rather than with exciting activities on the floor. So can you lose weight with dancing? Let's jump ahead and answer right away: yes, but only with an integrated approach and the support of a qualified trainer-teacher. You can easily find a real professional who will help both with motivation and with the tactics of burning excess in our club. nine0003

How to lose weight by dancing

There is no secret here: our body gets rid of stored fat stores when it expends more energy than it consumes. Therefore, we can do this in two ways: increase the load or create an energy deficit (that is, reduce the number of calories consumed). And if you do both, it's a combo! The body itself will not notice how it begins to lose excess. At the same time, dancing as an effective physical activity and a method of losing weight is best suited: here is the music that cheers you up and makes your heart beat faster, and your favorite hobby, and the motivation to be more successful in your dance group. Yes, the mere fact that, having signed up for a dance, you have to leave the house once again to come to class, it will help to burn calories. nine0003

Sign up for a trial lesson

How it works

Here's what will happen in your body while you move on the floor: first of all, metabolism is activated. The body will burn calories intensely for several hours after a workout. During this period, it is advisable to drink more fluids, but do not take heavy meals, so as not to interfere with the "magic" process of losing weight. With regular dancing, the lymphatic system normalizes its work, and this is getting rid of all kinds of edema and the ill-fated cellulite. The result will not be long in coming: the skin will tighten, the muscles will tone up, and the silhouette will become clearer and, of course, more feminine. In addition, dancing is a great exercise for the heart, and if you used to suffer from shortness of breath, it will pass soon after regular training. nine0003

Here are some more pleasant "bonuses" from dancing:

  • You lose weight in a pleasant company, supporting each other and not being left alone with your "extra" kilograms;
  • Many dance exercises work those muscles that are difficult to "touch" even in the gym;
  • In any case, you get a strengthened muscular corset, which means an even posture, a toned stomach and tight hips;
  • Unlike many other sports, there are practically no contraindications for dancing, and even if you have health problems, you can choose the right direction; nine0028
  • Dancing is the optimal combination of strength and cardio workouts, which is considered the most suitable for the fat burning process, and due to the alternation of periods of tension and relaxation, your workouts will come closer to the intervals that are now so popular in gyms.

In addition, if you came to a special studio, it means that you are not indifferent to classes, and these are increased chances that you will not give up training and losing weight halfway, but continue to dance even when the desired result is achieved. nine0003

Experts even identify five areas that are the best helpers for those who want to lose weight:

  • Strip plastic and pole-dance include both power and aerobic loads, as well as stretching and acrobatics. Naturally, all this forces the body to train in an enhanced mode. Weight loss guaranteed! It should be borne in mind that classes in this direction do not begin at all with an approach to the pole, but with the development of basic exercises that strengthen the muscles of the whole body. They say that even those parts of the body that I had not suspected before begin to work. nine0028
  • Reggaeton is a direction that requires good physical preparation and a trained body. Energetic dance replaces full-fledged cardio. Plus - increased load on the legs, hips and buttocks.
  • Belly dance. Great for those who want to tighten the muscles of the body and see the long-awaited press. In "shaking" the whole body is strengthened, and calories are burned due to energetic movements. In addition, belly dancing is believed to work the thighs and buttocks, toning them without boring squats and lunges. Worth a try! nine0028
  • Irish step - this trend has become one of the top leaders for weight loss, maybe unexpectedly, but quite justifiably: it is believed that such activities completely replace jogging in the park. The upper body in the Irish step is almost not involved, but the legs work out to the fullest.
  • Flamenco - provides the body with a uniform load. This direction trains all major muscle groups, toning them and correcting the feminine silhouette. Flamenco is a very energetic dance that will not let you get bored during class. And it is also very useful for the spine and, as a result, a beautiful posture. nine0028

All Latin dances and modern jazz also got into the top ideal for weight loss dance styles.

Do not expect from dancing that you will start to lose weight in some specific places. Belly dancing, for example, will not make you press "cubes", leaving your arms and legs as they were.
