Dance is a language that crosses cultural boundaries that everyone can understand. It brings people of all ages, backgrounds, religions, and musical tastes together. The proper music can unite people who may have never met otherwise. All it takes is just a single song to get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!

From bar mitzvahs to Sweet Sixteens, it’s critical to keep the whole crowd engaged. The same goes for weddings, which are inevitably very special occasions. Next time you’re at a wedding (or are getting married yourself!), here are a few popular dance tracks you can request that will appeal to the crowd.

“Shout” by The Isley Brothers – Everyone from your grandmother to your nephew will hit the stage once this classic dance track comes on. Whether you are nine or ninety-nine, it’s tough to resist raising your hands to “Shout” by The Isley Brothers.

“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper – When you gather the ladies to the dancefloor, the rest of the gang follows, which is why this Cyndi Lauper track is a must-have at all wedding receptions.

“Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra – This timeless classic is among the most popular for the first dance between couples, father and daughter, and mother and son.

“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond – No matter what generation you were born into, you have likely sung along to this classic at a wedding once or twice.  

“I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas – In this song, the tune’s lyrics state that “tonight’s gonna be a good night,” which is why it became an instant hit at contemporary weddings.

A couple bonus jams to liven things up:


  • “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson
  • “Jump Around” by House of Pain


No matter what your favorite moves are, these songs will get your arms waving and toes tapping!
