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.

Hover and Hold

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.

  • FAIL: You’ve missed something.
  • OK: Not bad. Now try to synchronize better with the dancer.
  • GOOD: Nice move! Increase your energy and stay in rhythm with the dancer.
  • PERFECT: Awesome! There is nothing more to teach you. A dancer is born!

Gold Moves

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.

The Stars

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.


The style comment in the score recap gives you advanced feedback on your performance.

  • Energetic: Not only are you precise, but your moves are also powerful!
  • Smooth: Your moves are delicately accurate!
  • Wild: You don’t really follow the moves, but you give everything you have.
  • Cute: You are free and graceful, like a little bird dancing.
  • Great Starter: You scored well at the start of the song, a little less toward the end.
  • Great Finisher: After a difficult start, you scored much better at the end!
  • Twins: You and another player do well on the same moves, and fail the same moves…
  • Exhausted: The end of your performance was not quite as energetic as the beginning.
  • Creative: You’re so inventive. Nothing else can describe you.
  • Agitated: Keep calm and just dance!
  • Accurate: You follow the song to the beat!


You can access the Leaderboard from the Mode Selection screen.

Use your Dancer Card to track your progress and record your Just Dance experience!

The Dancer Card shows your stats and personal progress: the most common style, the three most played songs, and average stars.


Mojo is the money of Just Dance: it allows you to buy new Choreographies and new Avatars in the game.

How to Gain Mojo?

You can gain Mojo in many ways:

  • Stars: At the end of a song, you gain one Mojo point for each star.
  • Karaoke: Playing Karaoke during a song will make you gain additional Mojo.
  • Dance with Friends: Invite your friends to dance with you! More people dancing means more stars, which means more Mojo!
    • Be curious! Explore! Become an expert dancer!

      Try new content, unlock alternative dances, and win stars—you’ll find other ways to gain Mojo and be rewarded!

      Spending Mojo

      • New Dances: You can buy new Choreographies and Alternative dances on the Song Page, and in the Shop.
      • New Avatars: You can buy new Avatars with Mojo in the Dancer Card.


The Classic is the original choreography in pure Just Dance style. There can be up to six dance coaches on the screen and up to six players can dance at the same time!


In Battle, two songs go up against one another. Solo players can compete against the in-game dancers. If there are two players, you can compete against one another. Finally, if there are three or four players, you can team up and compete against another team.

The player or team winning a round makes the opposing player or team dance to their music! A round ends when the countdown is over. Whoever wins three rounds wins the battle!


Dancers from all songs team up to create a new mash-up. Pay attention: you may even notice that several dancers from previous Just Dance games make an appearance! Additionally, Sweat Mash-Ups are focused on fitness moves.

Alternative Dances

Do you want to have a new game experience? Alternative Dances allow you to rediscover a song with brand-new choreography. Improve your skill with a more difficult choreography, try the Sweat version if you like fitness training, and experiment with new ways to dance to your favorite songs!

On Stage

One player will be the Performer and take the lead on stage. Other players will be their dance crew.

When you play On Stage dance, we encourage you to sing and dance at the same time! Do you have what it takes to rock the stage?

If you’re looking for a dance workout, you’re in the right place. Just Sweat uses custom choreographed workout dances, combined with song dances from the main game!

When you dance in Just Sweat Mode, a special interface will show you how long you have been working out and how many calories you have burned.

You can personalize your program in Just Sweat Mode:

Free Mode

When you activate this mode, you can play any song of Just Dance 2014 in Just Sweat mode one by one, as long as you want. A Calorie Counter and a Timer will be displayed during each dance to help you to track all your efforts.


Plan your effort for a 10-minute, 20-minute, or 40-minute session.

You can edit or randomize your playlist.

Autodances can be saved or shared to the world through Just Dance TV, to your Xbox Live friends, or posted to Facebook and Twitter.

Community Challenge

You can contribute to the Just Dance community by dancing on the World Dance Floor! The Just Dance team will challenge all dancers from around the world with objectives to fulfill.

You will be asked to choose a side and defend your group by dancing!

At the end of the song, the side with the best score wins the battle!


At the end of a song, you will see the score of all dancers in the party.

There, you will be asked to vote for the next song, select a side for a community competition, and choose your coach.
