Wow....the best in the Just Dance series yet,
This review is from: Just Dance 4 - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
Note: I only play Just Dance 4 with my middle school physical education classes. 4 play and the rest follow along as we use a ceiling projector.
Today I had 5 classes play Just Dance 4 for the first time. We played the "Just Sweat" mode using the 25 minute option using the cardio-boxing style workout.
It was TERRIFIC!
It started with a 2 minute warm-up to a gentleman that sounded like the karate instructor from Exerbeat. My students were all engaged with the various movements.
After the warm-up, the game would randomly pick a song. They were all fantastic but the student's faves were Skrillex (off the charts choreography), Mr. Saxobeat, Good Feeling, Moves Like Jagger and the J-Lo song.
After each song, another 2 minute program with cardio boxing, kickboxing and other aerobic style movements were done, all engaging. The actual program usually took 28 minutes with around 5 songs interspersed between the workouts. It even ended with a 2 minute cool down with good stretches. Ubisoft could make a separate game just using the workout segments, it is that good.
Between the 5 classes, we made it to Level 9 and unlocked various goodies such as a song (Umbrella), new avatars, game modes, 60's just sweat workout, etc.
I wish I could post a short video I took of my 38 sixth graders singing loudly and dancing to "Good Feeling", it was awesome!
A couple of classes also performed the quartet of "Instanbul" and many already loved it because our social studies teacher plays that song when they study ancient civilizations. To cool......and a great follow up to last years fav, "Night Boat to Cairo"
Great job Ubisoft!!!!!!!!
Small nitpick, I wish I could make a custom playlist for the just sweat workouts.

Thank you and all the new style physical ed teachers who incorporate movement that everyone can do at their level, can do for a lifetime, and is not necessarily competitive. I might have loved gym class and been in better shape now had they done more of that 40 years ago.

You can post a video review. The option is just below the comments section of the review composition page. Nice job on an unconventional approach in school! For me, music is indispensable for any fitness activity.

We are creating an interesting game similar to this. Is there any chance that you'd be interested in getting involved as a guinea pig to test out our ideas ++? If so then we should speak directly.

Are you kidding?! He'd have to get permission from all the kid's parents to post a video of them on the open internet!

@ D. F. Rodney He can't post a video on the internet of minors at a public school setting. That would be illegal. Their faces would have to be concealed. I'm sure that's why he chose not to post a video.

I think you forgot the comma between "follow-up" and "teacher"....
