Background

Classic

The routine takes place on what looks like a circus stage. There are multiple spirals on the floor that starts out pink in the bridge but turns red during the chorus. During the rest of the song, it is purple with blue circles. When the dancers move around the stage to change positions, the spirals move with them as well. The platforms behind the dancers also light up sometimes in tune with the beat. Flames can be seen in the background when the word "Circus" is sung in the lyrics. At the same time when it is said, the very back of the stage lights up to reveal the word Circus.

Extreme Version

The routine takes place on a stage with several red lights which can be seen throughout most of the verses. The background also changes to pink and fuchsia with the addition of some pink smoke. During the chorus, the stage becomes red with a triangle showing the dancer performing in the middle.

Gold Moves

Classic

There are 4 Gold Moves in the Classic routine:

Gold Moves 1 and 3: This Gold Move is a right-to-left Wave Gold Move.

  • P4: Raise your right arm and hold your waist with your left one.
  • P3: Bring your right foot one step forward and at the same time, point towards P4 with your left hand and cover it with your right one, creating the same shape.
  • P2: Bring your right foot forward, unbent while squatting and at the same time, make a tiger's-claws-like movement with your hands.
  • P1: Open your legs slightly and at the same time, hold your right hand next to your head's right side and your left hand next to your torso's left side, in a way that your wrists will face each other diagonally.

Gold Move 2:

  • P1, P2, and P3: Strike your right hand at an angle towards the right.
  • P4: Crack a whip.
     

Gold Move 4: It is similar to the first Gold Move but is done together. This is the final move of the routine.

Extreme Version

There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:

All Gold Moves: Jump in the right and at the same time, raise your right hand and hit and then lower it and do the same with it facing the ground.

Mashup

There are 6 Gold Moves in the Mashup:

Gold Move 1: Right arm moves forward and down slowly. (Beauty And A Beat)
Gold Moves 2 and 5: Arms bounce outward. (Beauty And A Beat)
Gold Moves 3 and 6: Put your right hand over your right eye. (Just Dance)
Gold Move 4: When your on your knees jump up and point to the screen. (Walk This Way (Old School))

Mashup

Trivia

  • Circus is the fifth song by Britney Spears in the series.
    • However, it is the first routine to not be covered.
    • It is also the third routine for a song by Britney Spears to be a Dance Crew.
  • In the chorus, the dancers' skin turns pinker due to the pink lighting.
  • Circus is the third circus-themed routine in the series, after Funhouse and 4x4.
  • In the Behind the Track preview, this became the fifth track to have Alkis wear something related to the routine, the other songs are I Gotta Feeling, Let's Groove, Fancy, and Boys (Summertime Love).
  • This is the eighth time in the main series where a Dance Crew only contains female dancers and the third time in which it occurs in a song originally performed by Britney Spears.
  • Circus is Britney Spears' first song in the series since Oops!...I Did It Again.
    • Coincidentally, that song was referenced by Alkis in the Behind-the-Track interview for this song after a man yells out that somebody stole the costumes, and he starts singing the song.
  • When P4 performs the whip-crack Gold Move, the screen shakes slightly.
  • Similar to Miss Understood and Maneater, P1 has black makeup around her eyes which make her pupils visible.
  • Some of the choreography is taken from the music video.
  • Additionally, P4 resembles Britney Spears in the Circus music video while the other dancers resemble the backup dancers.
  • P1 was teased on Facebook through a colored silhouette.
  • P3's avatar has red hair while the coach has orange hair.
  • The second time Walk This Way (Old School) appears in the Mashup, she appears bigger in size than her other appearances in the same Mashup.
  • In the square and the coach selection images for the extreme version, the dancer’s glove is more green than cyan.
  • Vogue and Waack steps are danced in the Extreme version of the song.
  • In the Mashup, the dancer from Don’t You Worry Child blends into the background, barring his glove, due to the structure of his design.
    • Also, What About Love is in his C2 form while performing a part of the routine that belongs to C1 in the original routine. However, the pictogram color did not change.
  • All four of Circus’ coaches appear at E3 during Just Dance 2017’s segment while performing Don’t Stop Me Now.
  • Circus (Extreme Version) was played during the Grand Final of the Just Dance World Cup 2015.[9]
  • According to the Behind-the-scenes interview with Alkis and Veronique, the Classic coaches are respectively named "Badass Clown", "Feline Tamer", "Romantic Harlequin" and "Ringmaster Madame Loyal".[10]
    • Thus, they are the third, fourth, fifth and sixth coaches in the series to have names (excluding the ones based off characters from movies or video games); they are preceded by "Frost Princess" and "Magma Princess".
  • P2 and P4 of Despacito have similar coach selection poses.
  • Circus (Mashup) ties with Chicken Payback, S.O.S and Bad Romance (Mashup) for the earliest appearance of a Gold Move in a routine in the main series.
  • P1 appears in the background of Fire as part of the character selection screen.
