Incorporate Disco Into Your Wedding Reception
We may be showing our age, but we believe “More than a Woman” would still be a beautiful first dance at your wedding. This is especially true if you and your fiance want to learn a choreographed dance.
Your whole reception set doesn’t have to include the disco genre but a few fun dances isn’t a bad idea either. “The Hustle,” “Bump,” and “YMCA” are fun group dances and sure to get everyone laughing. These also make great highlights for your wedding photographer.

When did Disco Start?
DJs in New York City in the 1960s began overlaying prerecorded music with live music as well as mixing two or three records together at once. This sound became so popular that recording artists began composing these extended grooves and dance beats in the studios.
Disco music became popular to play in most nightclubs by the early 1970s. As Best Disco Songs became more popular and the dominant dance style of music, the disco-style clubs were called discotheques. Donna Summer quickly rose to be the most popular and well-known disco artist. Donna Summer eventually claimed the title “The Queen of Disco”.
Popular disco-themed movies helped spark the popularity of disco music with Saturday Night Fever and Thank God It’s Friday. These movies made superstars out of the Bee Gees and subsequently K.C. & The Sunshine Band.

Disco’s Popularity and Critics
The vast popularity of disco brought backlash from rock music supporters, blue-collar workers, and those that were just plain tired of the fads. Disco popularized the mirror ball, uplit dance floors, afros, and leisure suits. A promotional night at Comiskey Park in Chicago, home of the Chicago White Sox, took place in July 1979. Disco Demolition Night was about blowing up a crate of disco records provided by the crowd on the field.
However, a near-riot ensued after the explosion with a mere 90,000 people in attendance. In the 1980s, disco was seen as a negative term. So disco eventually rebranded itself as “dance music.” The best of the genre formerly known as disco became new forms of dance music such as house, electronica, and techno.
