"This Is How We Do" by Katy Perry is featured on Just Dance 2016, Just Dance Now, and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancers


All four dancers are teenage girls dressed as cheerleaders. They all have sapphire blue hair and wear pink and orange cheerleader dresses, long orange socks with pink stripes, and white shoes. They all also hold large pom poms, one pink (which function as the gloves for all 4 of them) and one orange each. Each girl has a different hairstyle to distinguish them; P1 has short hair, P2 has a long ponytail, P3 has braided hair, and P4 has her hair in a bun. P3’s dress is a one-piece, while the other girls’ outfits are two-pieces.

The coach is Diegho San, a man with light skin and black hair. He wears a black sleeveless hoodie, a pair of yellow pants, and black and white sneakers.



Véronique stated in the Behind-the-Track interview that the background was inspired by the geometric shapes and lines from sports fields and stadiums. It features many geometrical shapes, lines and colors with placements and animations that make it look like sports fields.

Aerobics Version

The background is purple, it contains watermelons and violet and green lines. In the chorus, part of the background turns green, and some lyrics of the song appear.


The background for the Fanmade routine is a living room with brown wooden flooring and white walls. There are several wall pictures, a speaker with a black and orange Les Paul electric guitar on top, and a small yellow shelf. The fanmade template is purple, and on the right is San's avatar of P2 from One Thing and the Brazilian flag.


This Is How We Do has a Mashup that can be unlocked and played through the Just Dance Unlimited service starting in December 2015. The Mashup does not have a theme.

Dance Quests

  • This Is How We Do is the twelfth song by Katy Perry in the series.
  • "Hell" is censored.
  • This Is How We Do was leaked along with Same Old Love, Teacher, and You’re The One That I Want.[1]
  • OMI’s Cheerleader is referenced in the track’s Behind-the-Track interview before it was ultimately revealed to be a playable track in Just Dance Unlimited.[2]
  • "Santa Barbara Chic" is incorrectly written as "Said to Barbara chic".
  • P3 has a move that is similar to I’m An Albatraoz in which she sits on her back and raises her arms and legs.
  • In the gameplay thumbnail, the coaches are seen with their outlines fading at their feet, like most Just Dance coaches. However, in the actual gameplay, the outline does not fade.
  • When all players raise their legs, their gold socks glitch and turn to white. After they put their leg down, it fades back to normal. This is not the case in the square.
  • The Aerobics Version coach appears in the icon of Sweat & Playlist in the menu.
  • All four cheerleaders resemble the ones from the music video, Hot For Me, and Cheerleaders Boot Camp.

  • This Is How We Do is the second Fanmade routine performed by Diegho San, after Turn Up the Love.
    • It is also the first solo routine for a Katy Perry song to have a male coach.
  • This Is How We Do is the only song on Just Dance 2016 to have two alternate routines.
  • Gold Move 1 and 2 in the Aerobics Version are similar to Gold Move 4 of Hey Boy Hey Girl.
  • The Fanmade Routine was meant to have been added in Just Dance Unlimited in Just Dance 2017, according to the Just Dance Minute video about Let Me Love You.[3]However, in the actual game, it is not shown in the menu, and thus only playable on Just Dance 2016.
    • In the Just Dance Now .json file for the routine, there are even the hexadecimals for the menu colors that would have been used if the song hadn't been left out.
  • In the files for the Fanmade routine, there is an inappropriately named scoring detection file called "thisishowfan_blowj.msm".
  • This routine reuses a move from Wild Wild West. The same move is also reused in Scream & Shout.
  • This is the last known routine performed by Stessy Emelie.
  • There is one pictogram that switched the colors of P1's and P3's to P2's and P4's color and vice versa.
