Dance, Wii için Ubisoft tarafından geliştirilmiş ve yayınlanmış bir ritim oyunudur ve aynı isimli video oyunu serisinde ilktir. 17 Kasım 2009'da Kuzey Amerika'da, 26 Kasım 2009'da Avustralya'da ve 27 Kasım 2009'da Avrupa'da piyasaya sürüldü.
Başlık, aynı ada sahip 2008 Lady Gaga şarkısından türetilmiştir. Just Dance'da, oyuncular sadece standart Wii Remote veya Wii Remote Plus kullanıyor ve ekran siluetinin tüm hareketlerini taklit etmeye çalışıyorlar. Oyuncular ne tür hamle yaptıklarına ve ne kadar iyi performans gösterdiklerine bağlı olarak puan kazanır ve bazı şarkılardaki özel Shake Moves, doğru bir şekilde gerçekleştirilirse oyuncu bonus puanları kazanır.
Oyunda üç oyun modu var: oyuncuların herhangi bir parkur seçtikleri ve ekran dansçısı ile dans etmeye çalıştıkları normal mod; Eğer yeterli puan alamazlarsa ya da çok fazla hata yapmazlarsa, oyuncuların eleneceği bir "Son Bir Ayak" modu; ve bir "Strike a Pose" modu, oyuncuların dansçı tarafından dikte edildiği gibi dansa başlamasına ve durmasına neden oluyor. Ayrıca oyuncuların puan tutmadan izleyebilecekleri bir "Uygulama" modu da vardır.
Scrolling lyrics - lyrics do not scroll line by line as they do from Just Dance 2 onwards, but rather simply display a line or two at a time after which both then immediately change to the next portion of lyrics.
Also, on Just Dance Now and Unlimited, the lyrics scroll with karaoke-style highlighting just like other songs, as well as the karaoke (sing along) feature on the latter where this is available.
Songs in foreign languages
Differently-colored gloves on the coaches
Songs from the 2010 decade (since the game was released in 2009)
Percentage of certain ratings on the Score Recap screen (49% GREAT, for example)
A similar feature was introduced in the World Dance Floor for eighth generation consoles on Just Dance 2017 onwards; however, this gives the number of moves in a category (e.g. w OK, x GOOD, y PERFECT and z YEAH).
Exclusively Solo routines
A visual "1, 2, 3, 4" count before the routine commences (Just Dance Kids also has this, but it is not in the main series).
However, several songs in Just Dance 2 have an audible "1, 2, 3, 4" countdown.
2D pictograms (from Just Dance 2 onwards, they will be made in 3D)
Just Dance 2 pictograms, however, were initially designed to resemble those from the previous game.
On Metacritic, Just Dance has the worst reception (49%) out of all the games in the franchise.
This was the only game in the series to have been released in the month of November. Every game since this had an October release (not counting spin-offs).
This game does not have DLC.
This is the first main installment to not have DLC; it is later followed by Just Dance 2016 (they are replaced by Just Dance Unlimited for eighth generation platforms).
None of the dancers in the trailer for the game made an appearance in the actual game, as they were only there for promotional reasons.
However, the routines they performed were used.
Julia Spiesser and Jérémy Paquet are the only choreographers for the dancers, each choreographing the characters of their matching genders. Thus, this is the game in the main series with the least number of choreographers and performers (2 each).
Just Dance is the only game in the traditional series that was announced at Gamescom.
The German version has a typo in the menu. It says "Gepielte Songs" instead of "Gespielte Songs" in the song-overview menu.
Scoring was a huge issue, as it was not at its full potential at the time. Hand movements often were read incorrectly and gave you a score of "X" or "OK". The scoring was fixed in its successor and other successive Just Dance games.
Because of this, the maximum score is still unknown today.
The German version has many incorrect spelling mistakes in lyrics and menus.
On the GameStop website in the North America, an alternate cover can be seen.
This is the only game in the main series that is playable in both normal 4:3 and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratios. This is because this game is designed to be played in 4:3. Starting with Just Dance 2, the aspect ratio is forced 16:9.
