It really depends on the feel of your reception. I would keep to Beatles, Elvis etc.

Who doesn’t like the Beatles????

 

I think you HAVE to have good music if you’re not going to have alcohol.  Just make a play list of songs you like, and have your friends take a look.  Use Pandora to generate some more songs, and go from there.

There is some pretty danceable Christian music, if you allow yourself to explore outside the mainstream “Praise and Worship” genre. Even some P&W isn’t all that horrible. Try Petra, DeGarmo and Key, or DC Talk. Some secular music has overtly moral or ethical themes: U2 music is frequently used in worship services, and Jackson Browne’s music deals with some of the same themes that the Sermon on the Mount deals with. For that matter, a quick google search of “Christian Dance Music” turns up a fairly extensive discography; but I would be inclined to sit down with some friends and their ipods, and make a list of moral acceptable songs regardless of whether they are overtly labelled “Christian” or not. It isn’t a clear-cut absolute divide between Christian and Secular anymore, with cross-over artists in both directions.

You could also go with something more along the lines of roots music, big band, jazz, etc. Depends on what your guests will enjoy, but those could make for a fun, unique, and totally danceable reception!
