Just Dance is a series of rythm games developed and published by Ubisoft. The title is believed by some to be based on the 2008 Lady Gaga song of the same name.
The game uses motion control and the goal is to follow the onscreen dancers' movement as closely as possible.

Additionally Dance on Broadway, released on June 15, 2010 for Wii and on March 17, 2011 for PlayStation 3, and ABBA: You Can Dance, released on November 15, 2011 for Wii, are both often considered part of the series, since they're two stand-alone games with the same gameplay as Just Dance titles.
The series also had a spin-off called Just Sing, released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016, but since it doesn't feature any in-game character, it's considered non-fiction.
