So why do we love to dance?

While the majority of Australians dance just for fun or to feel good, Australians are also seeing the health benefits that dancing provides.

Particularly around the positive mental health benefits of being active through dance.

36% of Aussies use dancing as a way to socialise with friends and family (with younger Australians leading the charge at 43%), and 19% of Aussies believe dancing helps with mindfulness, particularly with Australians aged 35-54 (27%).

With that in mind, Just Dance has a mode called “Sweat Mode which allows you to start your own dance routine, and keep yourself motivated by tracking calories burnt and time spent dancing.
