Macarena - This song came out in 1997 and the dance became a self-ridiculing way to have fun on the dance floor.
Other times, it is a contagious dance style brought over from another country or culture, like the "Macarena", which was also wildly popular in the 1990s thanks to a Latino band.
Silly, and yet also ridiculously fun, the Macarena was known by almost everyone in the late 1990s.
For example, the Macarena and the Electric Slide are also considered line dances.
Several line dance DVDs exist, many of them specializing in country line dances, but also a few for popular music line dances such as The Macarena.
