"Better When I'm Dancin'" by Meghan Trainor is featured on Just Dance 2016 as a Just Dance Unlimited exclusive.

Appearance of the Dancer

The dancer is a woman with turquoise hair with a yellow hairband who is wearing a layered dress with red, pink, and mango layers with what appears to be a turquoise belt in the middle of the dress. She is also wearing high heeled shoes with bows on the ankles, and a red feather bracelet on her wrist.



The background is a tropical rainforest with animals with a kaleidoscope effect.

Dance Quests

Better When I’m Dancin’ appears in the following Dance Quests:

  • Castle


  • This is the second song by Meghan Trainor in the series, after All About That Bass.
  • With an October 2, 2015 release, this is currently the latest known release in Just Dance Unlimited.
  • When the preview was first uploaded, there was a very loud static sound when the preview ended. The video was later re-uploaded with the static sound fixed.
    • Also, when the video was uploaded, Just Dance published a thumbnail for it, but the thumbnail didn't include the Just Dance Unlimited logo; instead, it included the Just Dance 2016 logo. The thumbnail was later updated so that it includes the logo for Just Dance Unlimited.
      • Additionally, there was an annotation that reads "Available now for all consoles!". This was, however, later removed.
  • This is the fourteenth routine in the main series to have a tropical background.
  • The routine uses moves similar to ones in BirthdayStarships, and Heartbeat Song.
  • A lot of aspects in the routine are taken from Birthday. For example, the background has a lot of kaleidoscopic features such as the dancer showing up dancing in a different color scheme, and certain objects appearing mirrored to each other. This routine recycles some moves from Birthday’s routine, and even the coach's dress has some features that are found in the Birthday dress.
  • Sometimes, the coach's glove will glitch from lime green to red when she touches her dress.
  • When the song was first released on Just Dance Unlimited, the artist's name was misspelled as "Megan Trainor" instead of "Meghan Trainor".
    • Additionally, the song appeared as "Better When I'm Dancing
      " instead of "Better When I'm Dancin'".
  • On the menu icon, her glove is on her right hand. The same happens to many Just Dance 2 songs.
