Line dancing is a great way to get people out on the dance floor. Some popular line dances are even highly requested during special events since they a lot of people can participate and have fun while on the dance floor. Here are some of the most well-known line dances.
The Electric Slide
A four-wall, 18-count line dance set to the song, Electric Boogie, The Electric Slide is one of the most commonly-learned line dances. The steps are simple, and the music is slow enough that beginners can easily keep up. It’s also one of the first dances that beginners learn when they are new to line dancing. An oldie but a goodie, this dance is still popular at wedding receptions and other group events.
Another popular line dance at weddings and events, the Cupid Shuffle is a song by the rapper Cupid that has been a party staple since it was first released in 2007. The song is fun and addicting, and the dance will have everyone grooving in sync. The steps are repetitive and are not at all complicated. It will not take you long before you can dance to the steps skillfully and confidently.
Cha Cha Slide
Unlike the two previous dances, the Cha Cha Slide is not a cycle of the same 16 or 20 count steps repeated again and again. Instead, it has a funky beat that is actually quite easy to learn, especially because the song calls out the steps to guide you. There is no need for you to memorize the steps, because the lyrics tell you exactly what to. You only need to listen and follow the instructions. Besides being an amazing dance to learn with your friends, the Cha Cha Slide also offers a great cardiovascular workout.
Cotton Eyed Joe
Cotton Eyed Joe is a country line dance that was made popular by the version of the classic folk song released by Rednex. The steps are easy to learn, especially because they are repeated over and over. It is also faster than the other songs on this list, which makes it a great song to dance to when you want to get your blood pumping.
