Soul line dances or urban line dances such as the Cha Cha Slide or Booty Call are similar to country line dances except danced to soul, funk, gospel, hip hop or contemporary pop music.
You may be familiar with the intricate footwork and hand/arm isolations on the hip hop dances seen on shows like America’s Best Dance Crew. Unlike hip hop dances, soul line dances are somewhat more accessible and can be done by people of all ages, shapes and sizes.
You may be familiar with line dance songs like the Electric Slide or Macarena at weddings. Hip hop step dancing or soul line dancing offer the same kind of fun dancing with other people but without needing a partner.
Many of these songs and dances would also be great line dances for high school proms and should definitely be on the DJ’s playlist. College dances, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, retirement functions, mixers, and office parties could also slip in a line dance are two as they are so easy, everyone from kids to seniors can easily bust a move.
