The best Wii Dance Games for the whole family

When it comes to Wii dance games there is something for everyone; from the young to the old, for everyone in-between and for every possible taste. In fact, for most of these dance games children, parents, grandparents and friends can all join in the fun together.

Obviously, like with everything, Wii dance games are a matter of preference, but after much research, here is a list of the top 10 Wii Dance Games as voted by Wii fans around the world.

The Top 10 Wii Dance Games are…

1. Just Dance

With over 30 iconic songs spanning the 80’s, 90’s, rock, disco and many more, this awesome game will keep you dancing late into the night. With scrolling lyrics so you can sing along, this game requires only one remote for up to 4 players / dancers.

With the actual dance moves from the songs, not only will you be having a great time, you will also be practicing your dance moves and with over 450 five-star reviews, this is the Wii Dance game to get.

This game has sold over 4 million copies worldwide and is an essential for your Wii dance game collection. This is big time family fun.

2. Just Dance 2

With 44 new songs, this second edition of Just Dance, builds on the success of the first. With even better player recognition that allows better dancers to score better, and featuring real dance moves, this game is a workout disguised as fun.

With real moves by real choreographers this game features music and dance moves from rock, pop, hip hop, R&B and world beat.

The 4½-star rating on Amazon is well deserved.

3. Gold’s Gym Dance Workout

This is a dance game specifically designed for fitness and to burn off calories. You will have so much fun dancing that you will not notice the pounds melting off. It is fully intergratable with the Wii Balance Board and features 30 songs with dances like Salsa, Samba, Cumbia, Reggaeton and the Meringue. It also includes mini workouts like swordplay, boxing, karate and kangaroo boxing.

I don’t know about you, but I hate working out so the more fun the better! This one is a definite winner.

4. Zumba Fitness

The Zumba workout is challenging whilst at the same time extremely addictive. It has over 30 different dance / workout routines (some which are exclusive to the game) and featuring dance styles like Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and Calypso, you are guaranteed to never be bored and to have so much fun that you will dance yourself fit. With 4 different levels from "Learn the Steps" training, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, you will not be left behind.

If Zumba or dance workouts are your thing, then this Wii game is for you; and to get an idea of how good a workout you'll be getting, check out the Zumba video below.

5. Country Dance Wii

If you are looking for a complicated dance game… then this one if not for you. But if you are looking for a game that takes less concentration and is a whole lot of fun and the whole family can join in, then this is definitely the game for you.

With 25 chart topping hits by some of the best country singers in the business, this is a whole lot of fun even if you haven't danced to country music before.

6. Just Dance Kids

This game is great for kids (young and old and even toddlers). With over 40 hit pop and hip-hop songs plus some TV show favourites, these songs have been re-recorded by kids, for kids and with dance moves choreographed by real choreographers, this will keep your kids dancing (and out of trouble) for a long time.

In party mode, the music will keep playing without you having to return to the menu and with over 90 five-star reviews on Amazon, this game rocks. Not only will kids from the age of 1 year to 12 years old enjoy this game, but parents and grandparents will love it too.

7. Michael Jackson The Experience

Michael Jackson might have passed on, but his legacy lives on in this game. With 26 of his greatest hits, the game allows you to practice Michael’s authentic dance moves in Video Training mode, and then to dance and sing to his music, with the scrolling lyrics on screen.

Michael’s music and moves are perfect for this game and if you’re a MJ fan (and even if you’re not), this Wii dance game is definitely a keeper. It’s a lot of fun and will keep you dancing for hours and will make you feel like you are dancing with the King of Pop; or better yet, that you are the King of Pop.

8. Dance On Broadway

If you had or have dreams of making it to Broadway, then this is your chance. You can perform 20 Broadway choreographed routines from the most famous show tunes like “Cabaret”, My Favourite Things”, Dreamgirls, “Roxy” and lots more. You can also sing duets, with up to four of your friends, with on-screen sing-a-long lyrics.

With dance routines choreography by real Broadway choreographers, you can now live out your dreams right in the comfort of your own living room.

9. Samba de Amigo

Samba de Amigo is the revival of Sega's classic Dreamcast game. If Samba is your thing, then grab two Wii Remotes or a Wii Remote and Nunchuk and shake ‘em like Maracas. With over 40 Samba infused tracks, the party will go on long into the night. This is a game for kids as well as adults and with all the Maraca shakin’ you will get a workout to boot, whilst having the time of your life.

10. We Cheer

The final Wii dance game on our list is We Cheer. This game is designed to bring out your inner cheer leader. This is a game for kids who dream of becoming a cheerleader, for older kids who didn't make the final cut at cheerleader tryouts and never got over it or for Moms and Dads who want to join in the raucous fun.

We Cheer allows you to use your entire body to spin, kick, jump and dance to various choreographed routines and there is no doubt that you will be fully immersed in the game. With some of the hottest music from the past and present, this is one of THE most addictive Wii games.

If you get this game, be prepared to spend hours playing it.


Before Wii, dance games were simply a matter of stomping your feet on a mat to on screen cues, now however with motion-detection, dance games have gone to a whole new level. With any of these Top 10 Wii Dance Games, prepare yourself for hours of side-splitting fun whilst burning calories and getting fit as a welcome bonus.

I've played some of these and they were fun... but now that the Kinect is out I will never touch them again. Kinect is way better at incorporating the entire body and you don't have to hold the remote. By tracking your whole body and letting you know if your feet aren't moving right it gives you a better workout and actually teaches the dance moves more effectively. My favorite is dance central 2.

I like Just Dance the best! What a great workout! Even though I'm a country music fanatic I couldn't get into the country dance, not as exciting as Just Dance. I tried the Zumba...I'm to uncoordinated! Very useful hub Trinity!:)
