Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Just Dance 2017

JUST DANCE 2017 is the latest entry in Ubisoft's popular rhythm and dance video game series. The game encourages players to get up off the couch and dust off their best dance moves with a variety of fun new game modes and a huge library of foot-tapping, butt-bouncing, "get up and get get down" pop songs just itching for a dance floor. Turn your living room into a virtual club by having friends join in the fun, either directly in the game with extra controllers or in the background on their mobile devices, courtesy of the free, downloadable Just Dance app. Take your customized avatar on a global dance tour with the World Video Challenge, burn some calories to your favorite tunes in the game's Sweat Mode, or sing along with your favorite pop star in the game's Karaoke mode. — What’s in the game? Minor Language - Song lyrics may have sexual references, innuendo. Some characters wear skimpy outfits similar to those dancers or gymnasts might wear. But characters are all cartoon-like in nature, diminishing any sexuality. Some minor references to drinking and drug use occasionally pop up in lyrics.

Great for families

Me,my 4 and 7 year old love this game!!! It really brings the family together and gets the kids to burn some calories without them even knowing it! I know I have heard some parents say the dancers wear suggestive clothing but just to let you know there’s no sexual moves. Anyways great game over all worth the money.

Easy to play/use
