School Dance New Songs High School and Middle School events have been a social pastime for as long as we can remember. From Back to School, Homecoming, Prom, SnoBall, Spring Parties, to Valentine’s Day Ball. There’s a dance for just about everything depending on where you are.

Of course, what makes or breaks a dance is the music that is played. Students can tolerate just about any shortcomings when planning a dance.

However, a not-so bangin’ school dance can have the students heading for the door faster than the bell itself! Music isn’t just the staple to any event– it is the event. It’s good to keep the following in mind when curating a High School or Middle School Dance song list:

Students Want To DanceSchool Dance Playlist Updated Music Lists

Sub-par decorations? Meh. No snacks? Whatever, Micky D’s is up the road. Bad music? Absolutely unforgivable. Especially with today’s younger generations.

Students go to dances to dress up and express their energy. All of which is mostly done through a dance party and mingling.

Be sure to add any dance mixes or shuffles that everyone knows and can participate in.

Students Want Nostalgia

Throwbacks are also good because students aren’t regularly listening to them. The classic hits know how to get everyone in a mood. All of which is a must for your dance party. The classic hits foster a positive and inclusive environment for your dance party.

Students Want To Sing Out Loud

We all know singing feels good. No matter how terrible we are at it! A sign that your school event is a success is that students are jumping around and singing along. Singing along helps students break out of their shells and get more comfortable with their classmates.

Including the best karaoke hits to your playlist is a must. Of course, don’t add too many sing-alongs, or else you might wear them out!

Kids Want a Break

Students dancing to clean songs at school dance Most of your playlist should energize your dance party occasionally throw a low tempo song that isn’t easy to dance and sing along to. Play a Slow Song.

Students need a moment to catch their breath, sit down, use the restroom, and check their phones. Nothing can kill their vibe more than catching their breath and their favorite song coming on!

Know the Students

Popular music varies depending on regional differences. Country may dominate one area, yet hip hop and rap may dominate another.

Some places may have an intense local music scene where students listen to local artists. For the most part, you should aim to diversify while considering what most students will enjoy. New music comes out every week.

It can be tough to keep up-to-date with the current hits. The best thing about doing high school and middle school dances is the requests. The students will request songs.

New songs that you might not have. But after that dance, you can get the songs for the next dance. Plus, each school has its favorite songs. Once you get to know them and get them – the dances will become more fun to DJ.

Pro Tip – You can ask for song request weeks before the dance. It can be as simple as a Google form. Setup a online request site for each dance.

Always Play Clean Versions of Songs for Your School Dances.


School Dance DJs play a range of music genres. Knowing what students like is key to curating a fun dance playlist for successful middle school dances or high school events.
