I hate the Electric Slide.

Please take no offence, but I’m not a big fan of the Electric Slide. There’s just something about what happens to the dance floor when that song comes on at a wedding. It’s like all the men clear the space and the women that haven’t been dancing run out.

A lot of dances have tried to dethrone the Electric Slide, but none have really eliminated it. It still lingers at weddings and events.

With wedding season about to go into full swing, I thought I would share some of the up and coming dances with you in the hopes that you will do shots and get another glass of vino during the next Electric Slide session and really impress people when you know these dances!

·         The Wobble: I learned about this dance at an event earlier this year with Reader Lauren. It’s got some elements of the Electric Slide, but gives you the opportunity to freestyle a little.

·         Cat Daddy: This one is a bit new to me, so we will learn this together.  The video had me at “Cat Daddy” (I like cats) and the t-shirts “B!*ch I Go To Work.” There’s a lot to love about this one.

·         Like Bernie: The ‘80’s were full of awesome movies and Weekend at Bernie’s is one of them. Well some kids in the south have created the “Like Bernie” dance. Basically, you move like Bernie. Dead Bernie that is.

·         The Jerk: I’m not sold on this one. My attempt at this resembled a pee pee dance.

·         Last, but certainly not least, there is Twerking. None of the videos of this booty shaker were PC enough to post, so I’ll let you google that one yourself : )

If some of these dances are too hip for the wedding that you are attending, you can still impress your friends with the new moves!
