How to Dance to Pop Songs at Weddings

Szewai Lee

Picture this: You’re at a wedding, and your favorite song comes on. It’s the newest song by your favorite artist, and all the radio stations are overplaying it like crazy. Your plus one turns to you and says, “Oh! I love this song! Let’s dance!” At this point, one of the following occurs: Either you head out to the dance floor with your date and awkwardly jump and shimmy to the music probably scaring them in the process, or you suddenly panic, say no, and stand around by the open bar.

Fortunately, there is a third scenario that is far better than the previous options. Wouldn’t it be great to hop on that dance floor and actually know how to dance it out to that awesome song? The Duet team is here to help you get on your feet and dance the night away without making a fool of yourself or sitting it out instead.

How to Partner Dance to Pop Music

A fun little step that can be danced to most pop songs is a Smooth Swing. A smooth swing is similar to a march, and can be done easily with an even time beat, as demonstrated in the video below:

If you’re riding solo at a wedding, don’t worry! There are still some simple steps that you can do by yourself that won’t make you feel silly. In the video below, you’ll see a few steps you can do solo on the dance floor to almost any pop song.

So have no fear, wedding go-ers! After learning these steps, you’ll never have to wonder ‘should I sit it out or dance?’ because the answer should always be dance, dance, dance!!
