"Land of 1000 Dances" by Wilson Pickett was planned to be on Just Dance but it was scrapped for unknown reasons. It was later featured on Just Dance 3. It also appears in Just Dance Now, Just Dance Unlimited, and Just Dance 2018 (in Kids Mode via Just Dance Unlimited).
Appearance of the Dancer
The coach is a green alligator with yellow spines. He wears an orange shirt underneath a purple suit with yellow buttons. He also wears dancing shoes. Because of the overall background of a classroom, he resembles a school teacher.
The routine takes place in a classroom. The class has three students: a penguin - who is behind the dancer - is sitting at her desk with her pen touching paper, at the bottom left of the screen is an orange rhino with crayons all across his desk, and in the bottom right is a fox who is covered in blue paint, and has paint splattered across his desk. At the very back of the room, there is a large chalkboard which covers up almost the whole back wall. On the chalkboard there are some fridge magnets that are shaped like the alphabet. It is in this order (left to right) N, b, E, M, A, n, c, f. And on the chalkboard, it reads "land of 1000 dances" in chalked cursive. In the original background, the alphabets light up and in the remake, the alphabets light up with dimmer lights.
There are 4 Gold Moves in the routine.
All Gold Moves: Put your hands up and bring them down slowly making claw motions.
