SOUL LINE DANCE SONGS | Hip Hop Line Dance Songs | Urban Line Dances

Updated on June 6, 2013

Soul Line Dance Videos & Music

Soul line dances or urban line dances such as the Wobble, Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha Slide, Zydeco Slide, Bikers Shuffle or Booty Call are similar to country line dances except danced to soul, funk, r&b, gospel, hip hop or contemporary pop music.

Nowadays, urban line dancing is more than just the Electric Slide or Cupid Shuffle. There are hundreds of great dances to learn and are being taught from coast to coast with hot spots in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Atlanta, South Carolina and California.

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.

Perhaps you've done the Electric Slide or Macarena at weddings. Hip hop step dancing or soul line dancing offers the same kind of fun as dancing with other people but without needing a partner.

Many of these songs and dances are great line dances for high school proms, college dances, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, retirement functions, mixers, and office parties. They're so easy, everyone from kids to seniors can easily bust a move.

This page is a work in progress that's far from finished. Please feel free to leave any suggestions in the guestbook below. If you're a soul line dance choreographer and wanna promo your latest dance, feel free to leave me a link to your YouTube video &/or step sheet. Or just leave a shout-out so I know you stopped by. Would love to hear from you.

-- Adrienne. See ya on da wood.

Chuck Baby Soul Line Dance - Music Chuck Baby by Chuck Brown

Chuck Baby is one of those fabulous soul line dances that is choreographed so well to the rhythm of the music that even though it's a little trickier to learn, it's worth the effort.

Danced to the song of the same name, Chuck Baby music by the Go-Go King of D.C. Chuck Brown. Choreographed by Sharon from LDC Lyndancnclub out of Mitchellville, Maryland.

Feeling Single Soul Line Dance - Music By R Kelly

Choreographer: Ronnie Goode

Game Ova Soul Line Dance - Choreographer Ali James

Some beautiful footwork in this dance. It's a slow jam with quick traveling steps. I'd say it's a low intermediate dance. It's a bit tricky at first because there are some 3/4 & full turns that come at you kind of fast but once you get those down it's such a fun dance. Another great bit of choreography from Ali James out of Indianapolis.

LR Shake Soul Line Dance - Music Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya Remix by DJ 8 Mile

LR Shake is a classic urban soul line dance with booty shakin' to "Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya" which was created in 2000 by LoWanda & Ricky but popularized by Ms. Belinda Haywood & the WMIB Dancers of Cleveland according to DJ 8 Mile of Detroit who documents its history on his LR Shake website.

Free downloads of remixes for LR Shake have been made available by DJ 8 Mile of Detroit: the original version with explicit lyrics, an extended 10 minute version and the current version that's edited out the explicit lyrics and only 5 minutes long. Click here for the music for LR Shake, remix versions of Shake What Ya Mamma Gave Ya.

M & M Pump - Dance Remix 8 Mile

Metamorphosis - Music "You Big Dummy"

Metamorphosis was originally a country line dance song until it was funkified by the soul line dance community to the song "You Big Dummy" with the Sanford & songs theme song sample. More limber dancers shimmy low to the dance floor while other people throw in multiple spins in the same beat count.

Mickey's Monkey Soul Line Dance - Music Mickey's Monkey by Smokey Robinson

Love the old school feel of Mickey's Monkey with some classic twisting dance moves choreographed by Bernadette Burnette out of Philadelphia by the song of the same name to the classic soul music of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

Mind Games Soul Line Dance

Ms. Jody's Thang Soul Line Dance - Music Ms. Jody's Thang Remix by Ms. Jody

Ms. Jody's Thang is one of the easiest soul line dances to learn, teach and show friends how to do because the singer calls out the soul line dance steps. Choreographed by Ed Williams of Philadelphia.

Nasty Girls Soul Line Dance - Music Remix "Think" & "It Takes Two"

Nasty Girls is one of those easy line dances with plenty of hip and booty shakin' that exudes 'tude relying on the sass of each dancer. Savvy dancers know to end the dance with a sweeping flourish of a hand sweep to admonish men to "Think". The music is a remix mash-up of Lyn Collins "Think" & Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock's "It Takes Two."

Odyssey Soul Line Dance - Music Red Carpet (Pause, Flash) by R Kelly

Odyssey is a gorgeous slow jam which looks like a wonderfully relaxing soul line dance to the song "Red Carpet (Pause, Flash) by R Kelly". Anyone know where to find a version of this song with the longer instrumental intro?

Falling - GaelleDOWNLOAD MP3

I'd have to say this is definitely an advanced level dance. Platinum slaps you right up front with a 3/4 turn off the top with salsa rhythms motivating you to hang in there because the music and steps are awesome. Soooo worth learning. The upside is that it's only a two wall dance.

Sanctified Slide Gospel Line Dance - Music Sanctified Slide by Christopher Page

A popular gospel line dance is the Sanctified Slide by Christopher Page and the Dream Keeper's Ensemble. It's as simple to learn as the electric slide and the lyrics carry spiritual guidance & corresponding dance moves to "Walk in the Spirit", "Shake the Devil Off", "Stomp Satan Lower", "Dance Like David Danced" with a dance tag to clap your hands ending with a Matrix-like swoosh of arms extending around from front to back and around.

Soul Food Soul Line Dance - Song: Collard Greens & Cornbread By Fantasia

Wonderin' how to do the "Soul Food" soul line dance that goes with the song "Collard Greens & Cornbread" by Fantasia? Here's the official step sheet from the choreographer, Lorenzo Evans from GoLo from the Washington, DC metro area.

Summer Night Cha-Cha Soul Line Dance - Music: Southern Soul Party Mood

The original version was choreographed by Ir Torre and the original song used was "Summer Night" by Jessica Jay while the soul version uses a laidback R & B song "Southern Soul Party Mood" by Karen Wolfe from the album A Woman Needs Strong Man.

That Thang Soul Line Dance - Music Get Up Offa That Thang by James Brown

That Thang is a tricky up tempo dance that escapes my grasp every time it comes up for review. Because the beat is so fast, it psyches me out from learning it.

As with other soul line dances, if at first you don't get it, just relax, enjoy the music, stumble through and at least try to move in the same general direction as everyone else. Just try to learn one section at a time. It'll get easier the next time around.

Here's a video of Luv2Dance demoing
