“Cha Cha Slide” – DJ Casper

However, if your guest list is one that you think might dance to this, trust us when we say they absolutely WILL dance to this song! It’s a tried and true ice breaker song that is clean, fun, and everyone can dance to.
“Cupid Shuffle” – Cupid
Just like “Cha Cha Slide”, “The Cupid Shuffle” is an absolute wedding staple and most people either hate or love the song. It’s a clean song that can get everyone up to dance without insulting or offending anyone at the wedding and is an absolute crowd-pleaser.
“Electric Slide” – Marcia Griffiths
The electric slide is a popular group song because it is set to the disco music Electric Boogie. This type of music is sure to get people up and dancing. Although the choreography was released in the ’70s, even the young guests will know exactly what to do.
“Wobble” – V.I.C.
This line dance song is a great late-night song that still fits the category of being a line dance. Often times with this one the DJ might come out and teach it to get people going but once everybody’s in rhythm and knows what they’re doing it’s smooth sailing from there! The Wobble is a great hit to start the late-night songs off and then we can go into some other fun songs either in the Top 40s, 2000’s Hip/Hop, or today’s Hip/Hop.
“C’mon N’ Ride It” – Quad City DJ’s
