It's 2022... let's admit something... line dances (or participation dances or whatever you want to call them) aren't dead.
Heck they're not even dying.
That's such a generalized statement. And it just not true.
They really comes down to a cycle, some of them have come and gone... think Achy Breaky Heart, but there are standby classics that nearly always work, Cadillac Ranch or Cha Cha Slide.
Cadillac Ranch was made popular by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1984, 38 years ago and it's still popular floor filler.
Cha Cha Slide by DJ Casper, Electric Slide and Macarena are other songs that are heavily requested. I rarely go an entire event without getting requests for at least one of these songs.
You can downplay their popularity, but the truth is they usually work to keep a particular demographic of your guests happy.
