On-Stage Mode is a type of alternative routines in Just Dance 2014 that introduced trios to the Just Dance series.

It consists of three dancers - one lead and two backups - dance on the stage. There are three spots for players - one for each dancer[1]. Xbox One version of Just Dance 2014 gives two spots for each dancer[2]. Lyrics are centred and displayed above dancers[3] (if playing on the World Dance Floor, they remain at their usual place). On-Stage Mode were planned to be in Just Dance 2015, but were removed for unknown reasons.
