WEDDING MUSIC GUIDE

Participation & Line Dance

SONG SELECTIONS

Participation & line dance songs, also known as group dance songs, are often played early on in the open dancing period of a wedding reception to get the entire group of family and friends on the dance floor. These songs can also invoke a conga line, a soul train, a game of limbo, rows of line dancing, a giant dance circle, and much more. While some songs are more simplistic—like the “Cha Cha Slide”—some line dances, especially of the country variety, can be quite complicated and take time to learn the appropriate steps.

Participation & Line Dance songs can also be perceived as cheesy and overplayed. It is up to each couple to decide if the group dance songs should be played at their wedding reception, or added to their Do Not Play list.
