The goal of the game is to dance as closely in rhythm as possible with the dancer(s) on screen. The flow of your body movements will be sensed by the Kinect Sensor and compared with those of professional dancers in order to evaluate your performance precisely. The amount of energy you put in is also detected and affects your score, so give it your all!
To dance and navigate the menus, all you need is a Kinect for Xbox One. First, face the Kinect Sensor. To control the menu, or take control of the menu, a player has to raise one of their hands.
Your hand is represented on screen as a hand cursor; you can switch hands at any time by simply lowering your current hand and raising the hand you wish to use.
To activate a button, you must move the hand cursor over the button, and then hold your hand over it until the selection circle is full. This is a successful press.
To swipe between pages, simply close your hand. This will attach your hand to the page, move your closed hand left or right. When you move your hand far enough the song selection screen will move left or right accordingly.
For each movement, the system evaluates your performance in terms of rhythm and quality of execution. Your score feedback indicates how good you are.
Some moves are more than just moves—they are Gold Moves. You will recognize them by the golden pictogram and special effects around the dancer. Performing a Gold Move correctly earns you a lot of points.
Stars indicate your performance over the course of a song. While you are playing, the interface above your name shows how many stars you have.
Leaderboards are displayed on the Mode Selection screen and switch between your local players, region and the entire world!
For each song, you can see the highest scores for it. Try to improve your score every time you play!
Your Dancer Card is created when you begin your Just Dance Journey!
The Dancer Card page is accessed in the Main Menu. This page shows your personal statistic and provides access to all of your saved autodance videos. You can also edit your Just Dance avatar here or buy new avatars with mojo.
