Songs With the Word Dance

When you suddenly hear your favorite song, what's the first thing that comes to mind?

"This is my jam!"

And without thinking about it, you stop whatever you're doing, feel yourself utterly enamored by the lovely tunes, and show off your dance moves.

Dance and music are two sides of the same coin. It's been this way throughout history. When we hear music, there seems to be an invisible force that drives us to sway to the beat!

What's fascinating is that how we dance to music is just as varied as music itself. Mellow songs call for a slow dance, upbeat music brings a bit of our wild side, and rock just makes us want to jump like crazy.

You may not realize it, but there are plenty of songs with dance in the title. Many of them are songs about dancing per se, while others tend to go deeper, exploring the many ways in which dancing changes our lives and helps us express different emotions.

If dancing and music are two of your passions, then you wouldn't want to miss this list of the best songs with dance in the title.
