Discos – love or hate?

Discos – love or hate?

discoDiscos are like Marmite, you either love them or hate them. Growing up, I always hated attending parties as it was customary to dance and anyone who knows me knows I don’t like dancing.  Yet surprisingly I am now the one up leading the dancing at every school disco we have! Unfortunately I have also been to many parties where the DJ has a playlist of awful songs that no one ever gets up to dance to.

However about three years ago I became an amateur Charity DJ playing at a range of parties and events including anniversaries, decade themed nights and birthday parties. Since then I have become more aware of the top tracks that get people up and dancing.

There are two types of music that people dance to, traditional ‘disco fever’ tracks and action disco dances (probably because there are set actions where you don’t have to worry about looking like a fool!) Below are my top 10 disco dances and top 10 disco songs which are guaranteed to get your party goers up and dancing.
