The dancer is a woman that wears a purple dress with yellow sleeves. There are stripes on one sleeve and dots on the other. On her waist, she has a big blue ribbon. She has pink-and-blue hair with pink, blue, and orange flowers on it. She also has black high-heels, and blue socks that have the appearance of liquid flowing on them. Her makeup is very visible. Her skirt is covered by a skeleton of what looks like a umbrella. Her glove has a ribbon on it that has a similar color to the glove itself.
The dancers are a couple dressed in a 20s British style.
P1, a woman, wears a gray dress, a red headband, a pink necklace, maroon heels, and short pink hair.
P2, a man, wears a pink shirt, a red tie, maroon striped coat, short red pants, pink shoes, and short red hair.
The level takes place inside the mouth of what seems to be a monster. The background is a blue sky with clouds and unrealistic (almost cartoony) metallic-looking rainbows with the colors (in-order) yellow, orange, pink, purple and darker purple. The dancer is standing on a flying pink candy-resembling platform that, like the rainbows, looks metallic-looking.
When the chorus starts and "Starships" is sung the platform flies upwards to a pink sky with hot air balloons and blimps. When it reaches the top there is a background similar to the one at the bottom. It then floats down again and the process repeats itself once. After it repeats itself, the platform flies towards the screen and out of a monster's mouth.
When "We're higher than a ..." is sung and the dancer moves far away from the monster. The background turns into a passage with multiple flashing and colorful lights; most likely trying to be like in the music video. After the line has been sung thrice, the dancer will once again end up on the platform and go back into the mouth and back to the normal blue sky.
All of this repeats but when the bridge of the song begins the platform will instead fly into outer space after the background with many colors. It then flies up extremely fast passing the blue sky and the red one; it is also extremely fast when the platform comes down. The last verse is just like the others.
The background appears to be a stage with spotlights and a silver platform behind it. It looks nearly identical to Happy's Sing Along background.

The resolution goes down during the flashing lights background on YouTube videos because the colored background can cause people with epilepsy to have seizures. To raise it, it has to be 480p or higher.
The resolution does not go down in the game and on mobile phone though.
Starships won in the Most Stylish Female Coach category on the first Just Dance Awards. 
Successfully performing Gold Move 2 results in a YEAH! that appears to be faded.
Ever since the game was first released, an image of the gameplay for the Classic routine used to appear on Just Dance Now with the captions "Follow the dancer as if he's your reflection in a mirror" and "Grab your phone and dance!"; however, that routine was not released at the time.
In the July 2017 update, it was replaced by Birthday.
The Classic coach makes a cameo appearance in the background of Uptown Funk in the second verse.
