    You either hate them or you love them, but group participation dances really can help make an event more memorable for the guests. It helps break up the monotony of simply having song after song after song. Those that might not normally get out to dance will often get on the floor to do something fun with the group that does not require a partner. It can also re-energize the crowd and keep the party going strong.

    You might be surprised at the types of events where a group participation dance can have an impact. Believe it or not, but I once played the Chicken Dance at a high school winter formal and it packed the floor. It was quite a sight to see with 800+ kids doing the dance!

    When doing group participation dances, you’ll want to space them out so that people don’t get tired of them and complain that there isn’t enough dance music. One an hour could be sufficient, but it depends on the event and the guests. Wedding receptions are a great place for group participation dances and the guests especially like it when you include the bride, groom and/or wedding party in the fun. If you’re not performing at a wedding, center the dance around the guest(s) of honor for the best response.

    A few examples of group participation dances are the Chicken Dance, Hokey Pokey, Bunny Hop, Electric Slide, YMCA, Locomotion, Shout, The Stroll and the Macarena. In many cases, you don’t even have to learn or know how to do the dances, but it certainly helps. Nowadays, with YouTube videos galore, it’s easy enough to learn the steps if you’re not familiar with one of the dances.

    So give it a try and see what a difference group participation dances can make to your event.
