Bust a Move: Dance Crazes We Loved and Still Do
The Slide Fad
The electric slide goes waaay back, and all it takes is one person to bring it out during a dull party and everyone finds their way in line. You know how it goes, two times to the left, to the right, dip back, dip forward down low (as if you’re whipping something), bring it back and go in another direction. But wait, if you’re doing the Casper Slide (aka, the Cha Cha slide), you throw in some hops, or if you’re a fan of the Cupid Shuffle, you include some kicks and “walk it by yourself.” Whichever slide you choose (Cha Cha slide isn’t as popular anymore) to bring to light at an office party, I beg of you, keep your crew on beat! Because if you’ve ever done the electric slide and one person got thrown off, then the whole thing, with a few confused glances and early turns, falls apart.
