What Gets Teen Boys Dancing? Apparently Disco.

You’re at a festival, waiting for the main show to start, so they play some music.

  • The Electric Slide: a few women join the obligatory mascot.
  • The bunny hop: the kids have a grand time.
  • The double dutch funk (or something): no one knows what’s going on so the mascot is all alone.
  • Y.M.C.A.: the crowd goes wild. Veterans and teenage boys alike are in full swing. And you can’t help but smile.

Did you know there was a video made for the song back in 1978? Worth a watch! But you can stop around minute 2 – all the good stuff is done by then.

What song have you found to get folks dancing?

Dancing the YMCA

Who let the dogs out? Who, who, who, who, who? No one can resist that one šŸ™‚


What?! No one was inspired to groove on Double Dutch Bus?! : )


These pics definitely make me smile!


Your CommentsFantastic! I can’t seem to get my vote counted.


Hands down, it is the Hokey Pokey. Well, right hand in, right hand out…

Second place, anything by Marvin Gaye or Barry White for horizontal dancing. Seems like a good time to ask, is your blog R or PG?


I remember that video!
I can’t think of one that is more cross generational and therefore gets more folks up and moving.
Happy trails to you!!!
