Three of the Coolest Dances You’ll Need to Bust Out on the Dance Floor

Mar 10, 2015

No party is a party without any dancing, which is why you’re going to need an outdoor dance floor rental for any backyard party you plan, be it a bar or bat mitzvah, or your wedding.

Sure, they can be expensive. Bar and bat mitzvahs cost between $15,000 to $30,000 on average, and wedding receptions cost over $13,000 in 2012. So it’s only natural that an outdoor dance floor rental seems like an unnecessary expense.

However, quality rental companies should have a good deal of experience in the business, and recommend having an outdoor dance floor rental for a reason. After all, you don’t want to have your guests do the Hora or have the Father-Daughter dance on a patch of grass, do you?

No, the real question isn’t whether or not you should get an outdoor dance floor rental, but rather which dances should you do on your outdoor dance floor rental? Here are just a few awesome throwback dances you might want to do.

The Funky Chicken

It’s unclear whether or not people actually like dancing the funky chicken, but it’s a staple and it’s tradition, so don’t be afraid to bust it out on your outdoor dance floor rental. Just do as everyone else is doing and have lots of fun!

The Carlton

It’s funny. It’s ironic. It’s easy. And most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. The Carlton is definitely one of the best dance moves you can bust out on the outdoor dance floor rental. Just do as its namesake from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air does, and snap your fingers as you swing your arms from side to side while two-stepping.

The Dougie

Last but far from least, you’re probably going to want to bust out the Dougie on the outdoor dance floor rental. Just move your feet sort of like a two-step, but with the toes pointed in and without bringing your feet all the way together, all the while dipping to the beat. As for the torso, just sway with the beat, and swing one fist up to your shoulder, drop it, and then the other, all in time to the music.

There are tons of different party and event rentals you can get for your backyard party, but one of the most important things you’ll need is a dance floor. You don’t have to bust these moves out, but your guests are going to want to get down, so give them the means to do so!
