I adore, adore, adore Just Dance...

It can be a very high intensity workout - I wear my HRM when I do it and stay within my Target HR for a good bulk of it when I do it. I have burned over 200 calories in just 20 minutes doing Just Dance...in fact last month I used it after my SA-More workouts most of the time...fun way to burn some extra calories - add in the fact my kids can join in at any time and "play" with me

Maimie, I don't think we have anyone teaching dance classes close to us, even adult ed and even if they did, there is no way hubby would go. He wants to learn the guitar, there is an adult ed class available, I was going to pay for the class, but he won't commit to it. And that wouldn't be embarrassing for him like a dance class would be.

No, he really needs something he can do whenever the spirit moves him in the privacy of our livingroom. He was hoping the Just Dance would do it, but maybe there is another game out there that will. Thanks for the help.

Laurie

Maimie - I dont know if Blockbuster does through the mail rentals. But if they dont - then Gamefly does. They are specifically a game rental company and they do it all through the mail.

I like the idea of renting first, unfortunatley for me, I'm 70 miles from the nearest rental. Does Blockbuster do the rent by mail like Netflix? For games anyway. I know they do for movies...

I have heard good things about this and Dance Dance. I don't have either. I was tempted to purchase them both a week ago and changed my mind. I'm holding out to see if others really like them.

2010 is my year to reach goal!

Check out your Blockbuster or other video stores in your area to see if you can rent it before buying. I have my name in to rent Dance and DWTS

Just Dance is one of my favourite games for the Wii. I don't play it every day. Aiming for once a week. But it is a lot of fun and burns up calories if you play the long version of songs and string a few together so you don't stop moving. You don't really notice you are getting a workout. I'm not sure if it 'teaches' you any moves that you can use elsewhere, but it does make you feel more confident shaking your stuff.

Why not take a dance class together? There are so many to choose from, you could check with your local Y and see if they offer any or know of anyone. It's something you can do together that's fun, not necessarily about weight loss...

My husband and I saw this the other night, but didn't buy it. Now he doesn't want anything to help him workout, but he wants something to actually teach him some real, honest-to-goodness dance moves. The man is wonderful, but he can't dance! He'd love to use the Wii to teach him.

So is there something out there that will teach him? Is Just Dance the game for him or is there another one that will teach him something. I know most of you are looking for something to help you move to burn calories and of course, that's a plus, but in his case, not the main point.

I'm not sure I'd use Just Dance or any other Dance game for burning calories. I think I've found the one for me, I'm really liking My Fitness Coach and I like the Wii Fit Plus when I need a change of pace.

So what do you think?

I'm hoping to try it out tonight. I do water aerobics twice a week on Mon & Weds so maybe this evening while the hub is at lodge... I belly dance too but it's not the same when you can really cut loose at home. I too used to love dance but am out of touch with it.

This is a great game. I use it as school with my 5 students. They are ages 11-15 and they love it. They pretend to be embarassed when another class looks in at us but I've noticed that they don't stop moving. We try to do it three times a week for about 30 minutes as our inside PE. I use it at home as well in conjunction with Wii Fit and Biggest Loser.

I think the reason I'm going to especially love this game is that dancing was always my favorite form of exercise when I was younger (and single) and since my husband doesn't (refuses to, in fact) dance, I'm very rusty and clumsy on the dance floor now. It's like having someone to dance with, in the privacy of my own home, where I can be clumsy and klutzy. :-D

I tried it for the first time this morning and I can see how I'm going to really like this, once I get used to how it works. It's VERY simple, so simple that I'm not sure if I'm doing it right, ya know?

Anyway, I did four songs this morning (after my regular Wii Fit routine) and I love that it added some calorie burning to my day's total in a fun way.

Josie I wouldn't compare it with EA Active or Wii Fit Plus. I have those and would say those are your workout. This is just some fun dancing, but for course dancing is good for you. I would put this closer to the Dance Dance Revolution Games. You select a song and then you see a little figure at the bottom of the screen that shows you what upcoming arm and leg movements you will do. The figure on the main screen does them in time with the music. You hold one wimote and get judged on your energy and with hitting the moves on time, but really it's only judging that one arm. You can do some old school dances like the Mashed Potato, Pump Up the Jam, U Can't Touch This and there are newer ones too like Hot N Cold, Kids in America, etc.

I'm intrigued. I love dancing and haven't heard of this before. Is it a "real" workout (ie EA Sports Active/Wii Fit Plus), or more for fun (iw Wii Sports)?

I so want the just dance game! The commercials make it look like such good fun.

Do you feel you get much of a workout from it? I'm not a big fan of traditional exercise so I think this game would be up my alley!

Shape-shifter, I think when that person said SP game they meant a team here on SparkPeople and that the team has created a challenge/game of doing the songs. I would just do a team search and type in Just Dance.

You can get it at lots of places like amazon.com, game stop, some babies r us, some best buys have them in stock. It should be widely available though may be backorder at some locations.

It's a lot of fun! We've had the game for about 2-3 weeks, and it motivates me to exercise even when I'm not in the mood to do so. There's a Just Dance SP game-- they give daily challenges of 5 different songs to do each day. I work up a sweat everytime-- good for a 30 minute workout. Even better, my youngest son LOVES this game. He always dances with me! Anything that will get him movin' is a plus!

The remote is only needed...but am so use to have multiple things in hand for so many of the other games just continue the habit! Also tend to use 2 remotes as well. Again, just out of habit.

We have it and love it. No mat. No balance board. Just remote and nunchuck and be prepared to have fun!

I really want to get this one, but I'm not sure if it's worth the money (kind of expensive). Also, it's not clear whether you use the balance board, or if you have to buy a mat of some sort.
