    That is a version of it . . . it includes some of the moves, but some are left out or have different names . . . like "the Running Man" move!

    The country line dances look like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I don't know any! I used to know the Boot, Scoot & Boogie line dance, but I forgot how to do it. :oops:

    I like that contra line dance too . . . and believe it or not, there was once a "partnered" version of it!

    Too fun! Anything that starts out with the running man is alright in my book! :D

    Thanks for the steps, Vince! I'll have to work on it and then give it a try when I hear one of the songs.

    I must apologize...

    I just realized (after reading the description for this board), this is supposed to be for C&W partner related dancing. :oops: I'm sorry to have added the line dance pieces here. I'll add them under General Dance Discussion in the future.

    I'm not sure if they are considered line dances, but they are at least jazz routines.

    shim sham
    jitterbug stroll

    Shim Sham is awesome,
    And of Course-
    Sweat!

    (notice a pattern here- lindyhop line dance, and WCS line dance)

    And the watermelon crawl. (mainly cause I love that name)

    yeah. How is it at your place, but in freiburg here it's common to do the jitterbug stroll all together, once an dance evening. In basel is it common to do the jitterbug stroll and the shim sham. All together.

    I enjoy the electic slide because I can do it just about anywhere with just about anyone. It seems everyone knows it (or some version of it) and it's just a fun dance. I like that I don't have to think about the movements and I can just enjoy the music and dancing.
