Performers do jaunty line dance to hit country song and the crowd loves it

August 19th, 2020

It’s essentially a fact: line dancing and good times go hand-in-hand.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen someone line dance and not have fun, honestly.

These 12 cowgirls certainly know how to have a good time.

But what exactly is line dancing? Have you ever been?

Well, historians and scholars still debate the form’s origins but evidence suggests line dancing grew out of styles from continental Europe, eventually evolving over time in American culture. Evidently, disco may have been the first genre to truly popularize the line dance. Now, it’s more associated with country music.

Line dancing has become a popular art form recognized and performed across the globe. The style’s inclusive of everyone and certainly doesn’t require technical mastery to have fun!

It’s a relatively simple dance involving lines or rows of groups performing the same choreography generally to a catchy pop-country song.

Guitars, cow boots, and cow hats are certainly welcome.

These dozen cowgirl dancers are ready to perform an outstanding, fun line dance to Alan Jackson’s 1992 hit “Chattahoochee.”

The twelve are broken up into three rows of four dancers each.

Each member sports a plaid, button-up white tee and tight blue jeans. The black cowgirl hats add the perfect country cherry on top, bringing the entire ensemble together.

The dancers move to the rhythm, clicking and stepping their boots to the groove.

They aren’t half bad! The crowd absolutely loves it. But wait, they’ve got more in store!

The group slides into a flurry of playful moves.

These ladies are reminding us what it’s like to have a good time.

“Chattahoochee” is a modern pop-country classic. In fact, the Internet is riddled with line dance videos to Jackson’s hit, and for good reason – it’s an incredibly danceable tune!

Upon releasing his opus, Jackson won country music awards for both single and song of the year.

Jackson’s country hit continues with the dancing dozen aligned, in-step.

“Yeah way down yonder on the Chattahoochee

Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me

But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was

A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love.”

Perhaps the best aspect of their dance comes from the sheer joy they’re having. After the first chorus, the dancers proceed to clap hands to the beat, each sporting a wide grin.

The choreography isn’t particularly technically masterful – this isn’t a Michael Jackson performance – but these dancing cowgirls are clearly having a great time while still showing off some slick moves!

Another round of turning and boot-tapping commences to “Chattahoochee.” The crowd’s obviously overjoyed!

But soon enough, Alan Jackson’s hit comes to a conclusion along with our smooth steppers.

These dancers are certainly fleet-footed! Alan Jackson would be proud. They’re having tons of fun with their friends and looking great doing it!

I’m actually kind of jealous. I haven’t been dancing in a while. Once the pandemic stabilizes maybe I’ll lace up my dancing shoes! We could all certainly use a vacation in the countryside.

That barely sunlit sky looks sublime.
