Appearance of the Dancer
Just Dance 2
The dancer is a male, green, frog-like alien. He is wearing a dark green suit with a Saturn logo, a white belt with a futurist ray weapon, and dark green boots.
In the remake, the color palette for the dancer is darker and he now looks more realistic.
Just Dance Kids
The coach is a girl with dark brown, curly hair tied up in a chignon. She wears a red T-shirt with some white stripes, a bracelet on her right wrist, a pair of black leggins and ballerina shoes.
Just Dance 2
The background appears to take place in an old film. There are UFO ships flying around, as if there is an invasion going on, and one of the UFOs are shooting beams. Plus, there is a farm on the ground and there are aliens can be seen walking around the place.
The colors for the background has been changed from black and white to dark brown.
Just Dance Kids
The background is supposed to resemble a disco. It has a white-and-yellow checkered floor, moving white lights, yellow walls with some brown circles and three light blue, circual stages with dark blue stripes. On each stage, there is a human-resembling puppet: the ones on the sides are singing, and the one in the middle plays the drums; each puppet has brown curly hair, moustaches, yellowish skin, a jumper, black pants and grey shoes.
The two background dancers are a female and a male: the female one is dressed the same way as the main coach, but her hair is blonde and in a bob cut, she hasn't got any bracelet and her T-shirt is blue; the male one has black, messy hair, a white shirt with a yellow T-shirt underneath, blue jeans with a black belt and grey shoes.
There are 4 Gold Moves in the routine, all of which are the same.
All: Flap your arms. All four moves are done consecutively during the chorus.
There are 2 Gold Moves in the Just Dance Kids version.
Gold Move 1: Bend up and shake your shoulders and your arms.
Gold Move 2: Point upwards diagonally with your right arm, and put the left one on your shoulder.
