Top 5 Wedding Dances To Learn

Wedding line dances have become a sensation. They’re festive, raucous icebreakers that pull guests onto the dance floor. There’s no better way to end your wedding day.

Line dancing is usually comprised of between 30 and 60 steps, but each dancer can add their own personal style. The most popular line dances draw from ’60s and ’70s pop music. If you need a few ideas, we’ve compiled a list of the best line dances of the century. 

Cha Cha Slide 

The Cha Cha Slide has been making people dance since 2000 and doesn’t require expert coordination. If you can manage a side step and a little wiggling, you’ll do just fine.

DJ Casper choreographed the dance for his nephew — a personal trainer who needed a track for his fitness class, and brides and grooms have been using it ever since. It’s a high-energy number that’s sure to reawaken the crowd. If your guests are looking tired, the Cha Cha Slide is an instant cure. 

Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family”

Line dancing might have started in 19th-century Europe, but ’70s disco took it to new heights. Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” is perfect for celebrating your loved ones, and it’s one of the easiest line dances to learn.

If you’re looking for more sophisticated choreography, Dance for the People has designed its very own version. Remember that you can add your own flourishes, too. 

Cupid’s Cupid Shuffle 

Who could forget about the Cupid Shuffle? This energetic romp will let you twerk up a storm, so it’s no surprise that it’s become one of America’s favorite line dances.

When you’ve returned from your honeymoon, don’t forget to add your dance clip to social media’s many remixes. 

V.I.C’s “Wobble”

If you can stand still to Wobble’s thumping tribal drums and rap undertones, you’re a true stoic. This Warner Records tune makes its way into every party and cookout.

It requires some serious hip-swinging moves, but your grandmother will love it. Its complicated footwork might need some practice, but so would a waltz. 

The Macarena

No wedding is complete without The Macarena. Everyone knows the moves, and you don’t need skill to get them right. If your coordination leaves much to be desired, The Macarena is a forgiving option that tempts the crowd onto the dance floor.

It’s earned a reputation as the greatest one-hit wonder in history. It was originally written to celebrate a flamenco teacher Los del Ro met on tour, but Mia Frye designed the line dance.
