“Mom! It’s Just Dance! Please, can we get it, please!!!”

This came from my 5 year old and 8 year old sons just last week as we walked through a store.

Generally, asking mom to buy things when we are out shopping is frowned upon. In keeping with living frugally, we try to stick to our shopping lists. In this instance, however, I was secretly pleased they were asking.

What I knew, and what they didn’t know, was that Just Dance 2016 was, at that very moment, on its way to our house!

Just Dance 2016

We’ve never owned a Just Dance video game before, but last year when I was homeschooling my boys, their favorite thing to do for P.E. on rainy days was to look up and dance to Just Dance videos on YouTube. While to dance to videos other people had made, we totally missed out on the interactive element that you get when you play on a motion-control gaming platforms, including Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Wii. My boys begged me to get the actual game.

We’re so excited to have Just Dance 2016 in time for the holidays! It is such a fun family video game! You’ll dance, you’ll sweat, you’ll laugh, just don’t pee your pants from laughing so hard. Here is a fun preview of my husband and boys playing their favorite Just Dance 2016 song, Animals by Martin Garrix…

So much of our extended family is going to be in town and the boys are going to have a blast having dance parties with their cousins. I’m sure the parents will get involved too. My boys always have so much fun, my husband and I can’t resist hopping in and dancing along with them. Just Dance 2016 has over 40 song to have fun to including:

  • Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass.
  • Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk
  • Nick Jonas’ Teacher
  • And family favorites like Little Mermaid’s Under the Sea

If you happen to have an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 you can download and play Just Dance 2016 with the Just Dance Controller App. The Just Dance 2016 Controller App allows players on new-gen consoles to use their smartphone to track their moves and navigate through the game. No peripherals or added console cameras are needed to enjoy Just Dance 2016!

If you own a gaming console, Just Dance 2016 is a must-have this holiday season! It is perfect for individuals, families, roomates, and more!

  1. I got this game for my kids last week and I sure am glad that I did! It makes for a great family bonding activity and at the same time, helps us parents break into a sweat despite the cold weather! :)
