The Best Line Dances to Soul, Hip-Hop, and R&B Songs

Updated on January 4, 2018
SoulLineDance profile image

I'm a line dancer in the Washington, D.C., area who started out country line dancing and discovered the fabulous soul line dance community.


Soul or urban line dances such as the wobble, cupid shuffle, cha cha slide, zydeco slide, biker's shuffle, or booty call are similar to country line dances except they use 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 literally hundreds of great dances to learn that are being created throughout the country. Unlike specialized hip-hop dances, soul line dances can be done by people of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

Many of the songs and dances listed below are great line dances for high school proms, college dances, reunions, bachelor(ette) parties, retirement functions, mixers, and office parties.They're easy enough that everyone from kids to seniors can bust a move.

      Fun dances! These kind of dances are so much fun and can really get people up and moving because they aren't concerned about needing a partner.

      I teach line dances and often the groups I teach them to are folks who have never danced before. I can use several of these dances for those kinds of events. And you've given me a "lens idea" LOL... I'm off to start work on it. *grin*
