I’m hoping… to see a day.
Don’t lie. You KNOW the moves to this one. Even if you want to act like you don’t, your feet give you away. This is part of your heritage and this blood is coarsing through your veins. Try as you may — you end up doing THE ELECTRIC SLIDE when the DJ plays ‘Follow Me’ by Aly-Us.
You could be at a 18th birthday Debut, a semi-formal, a prom or a (shotgun) wedding but regardless the venue, the moves are the same. Four steps to the right, four steps to the left, four steps back and then rock back two times and dip two times… aaaaand repeat. Throw in some spins and a few floor kicks and you’re looking MINT. In 1993, if you didn’t know The Electric Slide you probably didn’t get invited to the party.

Remember when Electric Circus was not on MuchMusic yet? It was on CITY TV at 330pm on Saturday afternoons! This is before MuchMusic took what was once a viable source for underground dance, hip-hop, house and r&b and made it in a corny 905er teeny-bopper pop show.
