    Yes you would need amplified speakers or a separate amplifier with attached speakers.

    I suggest you check with the dance group as to how they are now playing their dance music. Their existing sound system may have an auxiliary input that you can connect to from the headphone jack on your computer.

    You would need a suitable cable to run from your computer to the sound system.

    You also need to be concerned about having the legal rights to play the music for any kind of public performance. You can typically play copies of songs you have purchased for personal listening without any type of license. You may need one or more licenses for any kind of public performance. The laws do vary by country.
