“The Git Up” – Blanco Brown
This song by Blanco Brown makes for a great wedding group line dance opportunity. Don’t worry too much about the dance moves. Make The Git Up whatever you want it to be!
“Cha Cha Slide” – DJ Casper
The “Cha Cha Slide” is oftentimes one person’s favorite wedding song while it can simultaneously be another person’s most hated wedding song. 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 icebreaker 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.
“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. However, 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.
“Y.M.C.A” – The Village People
Ever since Y.M.C.A hit the billboards in 1978 this disco song won the hearts of millions! With its fun upbeat tempo, easy-to-sing words, and large hand movements this group dance will be a sure hit at your wedding no matter your guest’s age!
“Cotton-Eye Joe” – Rednex
I don’t know many people that have not heard of the song Cotton-Eye Joe. Its folky tune and lyrics are fun but are sure to get stuck in your head! Whether you actually know the dance to this song or just want to swing your partner in a circle the Cotton-Eye Joe always leaves guests with smiles on their faces.
“Copperhead Road” – Steve Earle
This fast-paced country line dance is one of the most requested country line dances still to date. This song has a beat that draws the crowd in and simple steps to remember. Don’t be fooled by the simple steps though because this song speeds up!
“Macarena” – Los Del Rio
The Macarena is one of the most popular wedding line dance songs out there. This track is sure to be a hit because of its quick tempo and sing-along opportunities. Not to mention, dancing to this song is super easy!
“Crank That” – Soulja Boy
Crank That by Soulja Boy is such a fun song to play especially if many of your friends grew up dancing to this during Jr. High or High School dances. This is one of the best late-night wedding reception dances that, just like “Jump on It”, most people know right away how to dance to!
“Twist and Shout” – The Beatles
Name a better song to pay homage to the greatest rockers of all time. This song is filled with rock ‘n’ roll dance moves that will liven up any crowd. This Beatles hit is sure to be a 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.
