Don’t Rule Out the Macarena, YMCA, Cha-Cha Slide or Other Participation Dances
We have all been there…doing those “cheesy” dance routines to songs that get played at nearly every wedding reception across America. But before you reject those so-called “cheesy” group participation dances like the Chicken Dance, Love Shack, or the Hokey Pokey, I ask you to consider what is written in the rest of this article. These dances may be the only opportunity some of your guests will have in order to get on the dance floor and have some fun; especially, those that are timid to dancing in public.
Most people are wary to get out on the dance floor when the dancing fun is starting. Only those that feel extremely confident (or don’t care what others think) will go out to get the dancing started. These participation dances might be the key to many of your guests remembering your wedding day as being one where they had a great evening of fun!
You don’t have to do the Hokey Pokey right after your first dance but let your DJ keep some options open. These group dance songs are frequently requested by your guests and often create reception high-lights and priceless photo opportunities for your photographer and videographer. People having even a little bit of fun for a few short dances will remember your reception as being a LOT of fun.
