I am an avid dancer and have been since 1992. I especially enjoy Swing, Cha-Cha, and Rumba. 

"Let's start the action!" -- Frank Sinatra
From 'The Way You Wear Your Hat, Frank Sinatra and the Lost Art of Livin'' by Bill Zehme.

Some of my favorite dance tunes

Swing

Havin' a Party, Rod Stewart. This is a great triple step East Coast Swing.
Little Deuce Coupe, James House. This is from the Beach Boys Stars and Stripes vol. 1. This is a VERY good remake with the Beach Boys singing harmony.
Sugar, Sugar, The Archies.
Return to Sender, Elvis.
Why Haven't I Heard From You, Reba McEntire. Good West Coast Swing.
455 Rocket, Kathy Mattea. West Coast Swing. It reminds me of a car I once owned.

Rumba

Stand By Me, Ben E. King. Rumba. I love this song even to listen to.
On Broadway, The Drifters.

Cha-Cha

Oh, Pretty Woman, Roy Orbison.
Vogue, Madonna. This one is for Arlene, who made me the dancer I am today.
Love Potion #9, Hanzel Martinez. This is a remake with a pronounced Latin beat.

Fox-Trot

I've Got You Under My Skin, Frank Sinatra. Reminds me of an enchanting and beautiful woman I know who is also a GREAT dancer.
I Get A Kick Out Of You, Frank Sinatra. Dedicated the same enchanting and beautiful woman.
Mack the Knife, Bobby Darren. You can change to Swing during the song if you like.
Witchcraft, Frank Sinatra.
