You Can’t Dance (aka the non-Filipino’s primer for line dancing)

“You wanna come to my party?
I wouldn’t give you a chance.
You tried to take breakdance lessons,
ended up in an ambulance.”

     – LL Cool J “You Can’t Dance”

How’s it going my fellow readers, hope the week has went well! As promised from the last post, for my non-Filipino brethren, you may be alarmed to sudden see the dance floor swarmed with many eager participants of line dancing. To avoid looking like a novice, do not fret. I have supplied my eager readers with a quick primer on the possible line dances that you will see at our wedding, along with videos. Now  nobody has an excuse to look like a total n00b on the dance floor! Here we go:

Line dances:

Electric slide:

I didn’t even know this song had a video, so I had to share. The mother of all line dances, if you cannot get this step down, please do not proceed to the other videos until you get this one down. If line dancing had a foundational move, it would be the electric slide. Don’t be that guy that is 4 steps behind and bumping into everyone!

Cupid Shuffle:

A variation of the electric slide, if you can get the first dance down, you should be okay here.

Cha Cha Slide:

This version of the song is likely going to be different from the one that you will hear. This one is easy. If you cannot follow along with the video, literally just listen to the guy’s instructions in the song. It’s that easy (warning: you are on your own with learning how to cha cha!).

Todo Todo Todo

Stepping up the line dance game is Todo Todo Todo. Once again I did not know that there was a video to this… but that does not really help anyone since Daniela Romo does not perform the line dance for us, so here is an instructor to help. The dances are starting to get tricky now, so pay attention!

Maybe I’ll request this one as a trick question
Larusso – On Ne S’aimera plus jamais

I don’t even know how to do this… but the video makes me want to sing the Fame theme as an accompanyment to this clip! (in case you were wondering, “On Ne S’aimera plus jamais” translates to “Is Love Forever”.)

The actual dance can be found below:

I have no clue who they are, but that is probably the clearest footage I could find that you can follow along with. Actually I don’t really know this one either, so we can all look like fools on the dance floor if this one gets played!

That’s all for now. Promise the next post won’t be as media intensive (unless you like this kind of stuff). Til next time!
