Just Dance 2021 – How Blinding Lights Brings Diversity to the Dance Floor
This year, the Just Dance team is back with 40 brand-new tracks to dance to with your family and your friends, bringing back many exciting features and introducing new coaches. The Ubisoft Daily team went behind the scenes of the “Blinding Lights” map, meeting with the teams that designed the costumes as well as with coach Angelina Bruno, the hip-hop dancer who rocked a cyberpunk-styled arm prosthetic for this song.
Creating Costumes for Just Dance
Sarrah El-Meddeb, Costume Manager for the Just Dance franchise, leads a team based in Paris and Shanghai who are responsible for the creation, design, and production of all costumes for the game.
“When everyone is aligned on this, we then propose designs and ideas for costumes, going from materials to colors to textures.”
Working on “Blinding Lights”
El-Meddeb wanted to talk to us about one of her favorite maps to work on for this year’s edition of Just Dance: “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd.
Creating a Cyberpunk Vibe With a Costume
Anouk Wipprecht is a “FashionTech” designer from the Netherlands who creates tech-enhanced fashion designs.
Bringing More Diversity to the Dance Floor
“In the past few years, we have been working hard on bringing more diversity into Just Dance,” El-Meddeb explained. To help with that, we are committed to having a strong and diverse cast of dancers who have bodies of all shapes, to better represent our players and make sure they feel like they belong to the world of Just Dance, El-Meddeb told us.
