Just Dance Wiki

On-Stage Mode was a mode in Just Dance 2014 that introduced trios to the Just Dance series.

It consisted of three dancers - one lead and two backups - that would dance on a 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]. The lyrics for each song that had this mode were centered and displayed above the dancers[3] (if playing on the World Dance Floor, they remain at their usual place). On-Stage Mode was planned to be in Just Dance 2015, but was scrapped for unknown reasons.

  • On the Wii, the player cannot return to the homescreen on the main menu while playing in On-Stage mode.
  • As seen on the official Just Dance website, the mode was originally going to return in Just Dance 2015; however, it did not appear in the final cut.
