List of R&B Line Dances

List of R&B Line Dances thumbnail
Line dancing is so popular because it is a social dance.

In a line dance a group of people dance a choreographed, repeating sequence of steps. The dancers stand in lines or rows while facing the same direction. Each step is danced at the same time along with all the other dancers. The “Electric Slide,” “Cha-Cha Slide,” “Cupid Shuffle,” and “Booty Call” are all line dances that are done to R&B songs. These dances catch on because they are fun and easy to do. It is entertaining to just watch or join in the dance. And no partner is required.

  1. Electric Slide

    • Marci Griffiths performed the song, “Electric Boogie” which the “Electric Slide” is danced to. According to Jambalayah.com, “Her song "Electric Boogie" released in 1976 and re-released in 1989, made the Electric Slide, a line dance, an international dance craze. For many people when you mention the word “line dance” the “Electric Slide” immediately comes to mind. The simple dance with its catchy “boogie-woogie” tune and simple moves made it a favorite dance at many events. The “Electric Slide” is a one of the easiest line dances to learn. You can watch for a few moments and jump right into dance.

    Cha-Cha Slide

    • Replacing the “Electric Slide” with its wide-spread appeal, the ”Cha-Cha Slide” was released in 1996 as a dance track for Bally’s Total Fitness. The “Cha-Cha Slide” is also known as the “Casper Slide” after its creator DJ Casper, Mr. C. The album, “Cha-Cha Slide: The Original Slide Album” was released on Sept. 19, 2000. DanceJam.com explains that the line dance grew in popularity throughout North America—especially in Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Memphis and Detroit. The Cha-Cha slide song is commonly played at social gatherings such as dance parties, school events, skating rinks, weddings and cookouts.

    Cupid Shuffle

    • The “Cupid Shuffle” is somewhat similar to the “Cha-Cha Slide.” It is danced to the song called “The Cupid Shuffle” by hip-hop artist Cupid. The song’s catchy beat helped to make it a hit at nightclubs. The “Cupid Shuffle” began rising in popularity in Cupid’s home town of Lafayette, La. The dance is a hip-hop variation of country line dancing. The dance steps are sung within the lyrics making it easy to learn and remember.
