Appearance of the Dancer

DontStopMeALT Coach 1.png

The coach is the panda from previous Just Dance titles, including C’mon, Timber, Happy (as a background character), and I Gotta Feeling. In the beginning of the song, he is not wearing anything but a pink bandanna on his right wrist. He then gains a top hat with crown on it and unbuttoned vest, which change their color scheme according to the dancer that belongs to the backgrounds displayed, with his neutral outfit’s color scheme being a purple vest and a blue hat. These clothing items appear with a burning transition that then exudes pink and aquamarine particles. At the end, they disintegrate in purple and sky blue particles. His outline is also white and paper-like, although it has a smoother contour, as if it was ripped.


The song starts with a statue of the Just Dance logo that is illuminated by two lights on the ground. The brightness of the light will flash and change according to the Panda’s movement. When the chorus starts, the background changes, with background containing the Just Dance logo and backgrounds from previous songs from previous games of Just Dance, these are (note: they are not in order): Gangnam Style, Chiwawa, Teacher, All About That Bass, Fun, William Tell Overture, Hey Mama, Pound The Alarm, Starships, No Control, Birthday, The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?), Boys (Summertime Love), Drop the Mambo, Circus, Get Lucky, Dark Horse, Built For This, I’m An Albatraoz, This Is How We Do, and Born This Way. The song ends with the dancer back to the original place, with the statue becoming a collage of backgrounds. At the end of the song, the background dims.

Main article: Don’t Stop Me Now#General


  • Don’t Stop Me Now (Panda Version) is the fourth routine to feature a panda, after C’mon, Timber, and I Gotta Feeling.
    • However, this is the first time the panda coach appears in an Alternate routine instead of a Classic one.
  • The coach’s hat is a crown, which is a noticeable Easter Egg because it could be referred to Queen.
  • The coach was going to have a blue, glowing outline instead of a paper-like one. This Beta element is shown in the Beta menu icon.
  • When Don’t Stop Me Now (Panda Version) is unlocked on 7th-generation consoles, the tagline is "Never say no to the Panda!", as a reference to the famous Egyptian commercials that aired in 2010 and became an Internet meme.
  • The preview video is off sync with the audio.[1]
