Since Ubisoft’s release of their tremendously popular game, Just Dance in on 17 November 2009 in North America. The game, initially available exclusively for the Wii has sold over 4.3 million copies worldwide. Through the years the franchise has launched several games from these series, and now they’ve transformed the game the into the ultimate fan experience.
Disclaimer: Ubisoft sponsored our Review of Just Dance Live.
Although, I was provided VIP tickets in exchange for my honest opinion; all thoughts and options are my own.
I remember watching people play the game at the arcade and being mesmerized. So when Ubisoft invited me to be VIP guest at their show in LA, was happy to say yes. I figured even though my daughter’s never played the game, she would enjoy the show since she takes dance lessons and loves to dance. The show would keep her entertained from start to finish. My motherly intuition was correct and she asked me if she could see the show again it comes to in town again.
After the show, a few fans private messaged me and asked what I thought of the show. Although many of them had seen ads promoting Just Dance Live, they were not sure if the show was kid-friendly. So I thought I would write a review from a spectator’s perspective.
Here is our Review of Just Dance
Kid-Friendly: Although Joy hasn’t had an opportunity to play the games, the moment we enter the show it felt like we were transported into a live version series. From the preshow activities to interactive dance performance Joy was all giggles and smile as she dances to the latest hits of this decade.
Hasn’t Played or Heard of the Game: Whether or not your child has played the game if they love to dance then you have to bring them to see this show. What makes this Just Dance Live so unique is how the cast interacted with the audience via four different stages that surround the dance floor. Joy has a blast going back and forth between both stages trying to mimic the popular dance moves she saw the performers acting out on stage.
Tip: During the show, I did get tired following her back and forth between the two main stages. Luckily, I was able to take a rest in the seating area they had on each side of the dance floor as her, older brother, Houston took my spot. Therefore, if you bring a younger child and you are unable to stand for a full 2 hours, I recommend you bring some to help to keep an eye on your little one.
Pre Show’s a Must: Due to the wonderful traffic we have in Los Angeles, I was forty minutes late. So we had to rush through the activities they have to make guests picture perfect to boggy on the dance floor. When you first enter the show you walk the red carpet and you are greeted by members of the show. Next, there is a hair coloring and face painting stations. We were able to do all the activities and Joy was set to hit the dance floor. However, I highly recommend you getting there on time, you kids will love it.
