I also recommend The Siege of Ennis, it’s a great group dance and is great to get everyone on the dance floor for a bit of fun.

I like to include an interactive dance game “ The Tom Jones” where we have a dance off between the two halves of the dance floor,
It’s another great way of getting everyone on the dance floor together and always goes down great with wedding parties.

Sometimes if people are really enjoying themselves they need to catch their breath so we would do a slow song or two and these are great songs as most people know them and sing along
Such songs would be
Colin Ray- Love me
Eric Clapton - Wonderful tonight
Just to name a few.
