Provided you can endure the summer heat and humidity, spending a few hours these school/Christmas holidays working up a sweat while dancing to professionally choreographed tracks in Just Dance 2021 might be a great addition to your schedule. If you are looking for new tracks to play however – then now is a good time to boot up the game on your console of choice once more.

The event will also include the release of “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” by Ylvis on 24 December 2020, but this will go straight to Just Dance Unlimited.
Part 2 will then launch on 14 January and run until 4 February. A larger update than the first, this introduces a playlist of three exclusive songs and three songs from previous games.
