Line Dance Songs: Playlist for Foot-Stompin’ Fun and Lively Moves

Updated November 14, 2023 | Author: Matthew Campbell

Know popular songs to play to get groups doing a line dance.

Whether it’s traditional country line dancing or group dances, these songs bring everyone out to the dance floor. Because it isn’t partner dancing like a slow dance, people of all ages and relationship statuses feel comfortable participating.

line dance songs for group dancing

When picking out line dance songs, you must consider the following 3 factors:

  1. Do you know the choreographed dance moves that coincide with the song?
  2. Does the song hold special meaning to you or your guests?
  3. Does the song fit into the wedding’s theme?

As an experienced wedding DJ, I’ve assembled a list of line dance songs. Songs are selected by the song’s popularity on social media and at weddings. Besides new and trending, additional lists are grouped by genre to match your taste in music.

FAQs

Group dance songs and line dance songs are played at wedding receptions to get people all together on the dance floor — in a group.

Group and line dance songs are also known as audience participation songs. Group songs played can invoke a conga line, a train line, rows of line dancing, and more!

Group songs are generally less complicated as far as dance moves are concerned. “Shout” by the Isley Brothers – shouting and raising hands, “Willie & The Hand Jive” by Johnny Otis – a routine hand jive.

Lastly, I would recommend “The Stroll” by the Diamonds. Everyone lines up with men on one side and women on the other. Then, each couple goes through the line under everyone’s hands. It’s a classic.

A better question may be if you want people to dance at your wedding. It’s up to you, as the wedding couple, to decide the mood they want at their wedding reception. Some couples think group dance songs as cheesy or overplayed at wedding receptions. But when the moment hits, it can be pure magic.

There are many country party songs to choose from that your DJ can play at your wedding. Many guests at wedding receptions would know them as line dance songs. However, our most popular country line dance songs are “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” by Brooks & Dunn, “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson, and “Watermelon Crawl” by Tracy Bird. Popular pop radio songs have created dance crazes also. These songs include “Macarena” by Los Del Rio, “Cha Cha Slide” by Mr. C, “Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffiths, and “The Twist” by Chubby Checker.

Yes and no. Country dancers still like to line dance whether it be at a club, party, or wedding. However, due to the mass overplay of line dances at weddings, many couples are choosing to add popular line dance songs to their “do not playlists”. Whether or not to play line dance songs at your wedding should be determined by your guests and whether or not the songs will pack the dance floor.

Group songs are cheesy. Cheesy is fun. Embrace the cheese! People may smirk for a moment until they see everyone else having fun. Have you done the conga up and down a wedding boat? It’s really fun.

Songs that will entice a group conga line or train line include “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train)” by Quad City DJ’s, “Conga” by Miami Sound Machine, and “The Loco-motion” by Grand Funk Railroad, and “The Locomotion” by Little Eva.

Another activity at more casual or upbeat wedding receptions is limbo. I added a limbo music playlist including “Limbo Rock” by Chubby Checker.

  • Cowboy Cha Cha
  • Electric Slide
  • Cha Cha Slide
  • Tush Push
  • Hokey Pokey
  • Chicken Dance

Talk to your professional wedding planner and DJ. They probably know someone who can teach a few line-dancing songs. And if they don’t, look to your local bars. Someone is always teaching line dancing. Don’t worry if country music isn’t your jam. Country line dancing can be done to any genre of music that has a good beat!

A current popular thing to do at weddings is to have a choreographed dance with a group of people. For this, you would select your own songs. I have seen routine dances to “Forever” by Chris Brown and, of course, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson on YouTube. Old-time kid songs are also very popular to fill the dance floor at wedding receptions. These songs include the Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance, and the Bunny Hop.
