The 5 Most Popular Disco Dances

2. The YMCA

The YMCA dance, while not exclusive to disco, became synonymous with the era, especially due to the Village People’s iconic hit “Y.M.C.A.” This group dance involved forming letters with the arms to spell out “Y,” “M,” “C,” and “A,” corresponding with the lyrics of the song. Its infectious and easy-to-follow nature made it a favorite for group participation, turning dance floors into celebratory spectacles.
