What are Wedding Line Dances? (with pictures)



Fact Checked

Jessica Hobby

When the nuptials are done and it’s time for the bridal party and guests to let their hair down, many put on their dancing shoes to head to the reception and partake in traditional wedding line dances. Line dancing at weddings has become popular over the years because it offers a way where all of the guests can participate in the celebration of the happy couple’s wedding. Wedding line dances promote interaction among the guests, get the party started and keep it going.

Some modern wedding line dances are performed with a group, but there is no contact with other people. The steps to the line dances are performed in individual spaces across the dance area. This alignment is also popular in country music.

The Electric Slide is the most popular out of all wedding line dances. It consists of left and right grapevine steps coupled with a backward slide, a rock step and a quarter turn. Because it is easy to learn, the Electric Slide is a favorite and no wedding reception is complete without it.

For couples who opt to have a Western-themed wedding, they have many choices for wedding line dances. Line dancing and country music go hand in hand. Three of the most popular country line dances are the Cotton-eyed Joe, the Tush Push, and the Boot Scootin’ Boogie. The Cotton-eyed Joe is an example of a line dance that is performed with a partner. Partners travel the dance floor in a circle performing polka stops and stop occasionally to perform standing kicks.

For receptions that incorporate a lot of pop music, there are many wedding line dances to rhythm and blues or hip-hop music. Some of the most requested are the Tootsie Roll, Strokin’, Macarena, and The Cha-Cha Song. These line dances are also performed in an individual space on the dance floor.

Older more traditional wedding line dances that have been enjoyed for years are a Conga line, The Hokey Pokey, and the Chicken Dance. A Conga line is usually headed up by the bride and groom with the rest of the guests grabbing on to the final person in the line and weaving around the dance floor. The Hokey Pokey and the Chicken Dance are performed in a circle, where wedding guest can scope out the dance moves on the other side of the circle.

There is no need for wedding guests to learn these dances ahead of time, as many times the band or DJ will offer instruction. If not, there are usually two or three people that know the dance. The best way to learn wedding line dances is to head out to the dance floor and join them.

Practical tips for laying out application forms in LaTeX / Sudo Null IT News

A few useful tricks for LaTeX lovers who want to make up an application form. For example, we will make up a claim form for the Russian Post (its “official” version can, if you’re lucky, be downloaded from the Russian Post website). We will not explain the entire layout from the first to the last letter, assuming that the reader is familiar with the basics of LaTeX. Let's consider specific layout recipes for "rulers" where you need to enter missing words, checkboxes with labels, signatures in small print at the bottom of the text and lines of different thicknesses and discontinuities. nine0003

Of course, the recipes are not the only possible ones and are probably wrong in some way. If you know how to cook better, you are welcome in the comments.


As a rule, all applications begin with several lines in the upper right corner, where the addressee and the applicant are entered. This block should be pressed to the right, the block itself is left-aligned and each line usually has a few words at the beginning, followed by a line to the end. Sometimes there are words in the middle of the line too. nine0003

The simplest code that does what you want is:

 \begin{flushright} % shifts the contents of the environment to the right \begin{tabular}{p{. 5\textwidth}} % makes a one-column table half the text wide to \hrulefill \\ % \hrulefill makes a line to the end of the line from \hrulefill \end{tabular} \end{flushright} 

We will modify it a bit so that environments flushright, tabular and macro \hrulefill are inserted automatically. To do this, we define a new environment lines :

 \newenvironment{lines}[1][\textwidth] default % lines to full text width { \newcolumntype{E}{>{}p{#1}<{\hrulefill}} The % at the end of our column will be attributed to \hrulefill \begin{flushright} % will automatically insert flushright \begin{tabular}[h]{E} % and tabular of the desired format } {\end{tabular}\end{flushright} } 

you can use it like this:

 \begin{lines}[.5\textwidth] To whom \\ from\\ living\\ \\ tel.\\ identity document\\ series \rule{2cm}{0.25pt} # \\ % \rule will make a ruler of the specified length and thickness issued \end{lines} nine0016 

Tick boxes

You can frame something with the macro \fbox , but how to make an empty box of the right size, say, 3 millimeters? There are certainly many ways. You can use the environment minipage , which allows you to specify the width and height: \begin{minipage}[c][0.3cm]{0.3cm}\quad\end{minipage} , or you can use low-level commands \vbox and \hbox: \vbox to 3mm {\vfil \hbox to 3mm{} \vfil } . In any case, I don't want to write so much code every time, so let's make a new \chkbox command and pass it the text that needs to be placed next to the checkbox as an argument.

 % \: will make a space between the box and the text, % and \parbox will make a paragraph of the desired width so that line breaks can be used in the text % don't forget to include the calc package for arithmetic with lengths \newcommand\chkbox[1]{\fbox{\begin{minipage}[c][0.3cm]{0.3cm}\quad\end{minipage}}\:\parbox[t]{\linewidth - 0.3cm}{ #one} } nine0016 

 \begin{tabular}{p{.17\textwidth}p{.25\textwidth}p{.25\textwidth}p{.3\textwidth}} % adjust the column width to taste \chkbox{airline} & \chkbox{receipt\\ of delivery} & \chkbox{cash on delivery} & \parbox[t]{. 3\textwidth}{cash on delivery\\ amount \hrulefill} \\ \end{tabular} 

Text below line

It’s easy to make underlined text, but here’s how to make it “underlined”, for example, write in small print “Last name I.O.” under the name field? One way is to use macro \underset from package amsmath :

 % text "position, surname and signature of the official" under a blank ruler half a page wide $\underset{\text{(position, surname and signature of the official)}}{\underline{\hspace{0.5\textwidth}}}$ 


Finally, you often need full-page lines. In the typed example, a broken line is required to separate the tear-off coupon, and sometimes in statements or appeals, lines separate the “company” header from the rest of the text (as, for example, in the letter in the picture on the right). A dashed line can be made using macro \hdashrule from package dashrule :

 % a full-page ruler 1 point thick, lowered 2 millimeters from the baseline, % with the pattern "stroke 3 mm space 1 mm" \hdashrule[-2mm]{\textwidth}{1pt}{3mm 1mm} 

Solid lines can be made with the command \rule , which has the same syntax, except for the absence of the last argument (the line pattern). Two solid lines of different thicknesses are easy to make:

 \rule{\textwidth}{.5mm} \rule{\textwidth}{.25mm} 

but the distance between them turns out to be too large. You can play with shifting the rulers, but it's easier to use the commands \hrule and setting the kerning:

 \hrule height 1pt\kern 2pt \hrule height 0.25pt

Description of dances with schemes. | Material on music (preparatory group) on the topic:

“Everything from Russian mountain ash”

For children 6-7 years old

Song from the repertoire of N. Kadysheva and the ensemble “Golden Ring”

8 girls participate in the dance.

Costumes: Russian sarafans, a bandage with "rowan berries" on the head, bandages with "rowan leaves" on the right and left hands.

Introduction - girls listen to music, standing backstage on both sides of the hall near the central wall.

1 couplet.

Line 1 - Line 2

They walk in two columns on both sides of the hall in a semicircle, lining up a circle. (Fig. 1)


3rd line

4 girls (after one) with a calm step on their toes converge in a circle, smoothly raising their right hand up, circle around themselves 1 time and return to their places in the circle. And the 4 girls left in the outer circle slowly circle around themselves, raising their right hand up. (Fig. 2)

Fig. 2

4th line

Movements, as in line 3, only the girls change places.


Girls smoothly spin on their toes in a pair in one direction, then in the other. Hands with a "candle" (connect the palms and elbows of one hand, the other hand is laid aside)

2nd verse.

1st line

Girls on tiptoes calmly walk in a circle and form a column in the center of the hall. (Fig. 3)

Fig. 3

2 line

They diverge through one side step in opposite directions (Fig. 4), raise the right hand up. Turn around once, behind the right hand, and turn to face the middle of the hall (line to line).

Fig. 4

line 3

Lightly on toes, they walk in ranks to the center of the hall, circle in pairs (connecting right shoulders, hands below) 1 time and diverge in opposite directions (Fig. 5)

Fig. 5

4th line

Walk lightly on toes in ranks to the center of the hall, circle in pairs (connecting right shoulders, hands below) 1 time and line up in a column.


1-2 line

Diverge in a line from the center of the column to the right and left, starting with girls 4 and 5. 3,2,1 the girls move on their toes with their backs to the center and follow the 4th girl in her direction.

6,7,8 the girls move on their toes facing the center and follow the girl in her direction. (Fig. 6)


3rd line

Spinning on toes to the right behind the hand (hand up),

4th line

Repeating the movements of the 3rd line of the refrain, only to the left side.


4 girls (after one) go forward smoothly on toes, raising their right hand up

(for 4 counts) and then step back on toes (in a line) and the hand is smoothly lowered down. And the other 4 girls step back, smoothly raising their right hand up, and then return to their places (in a line), lowering their hand down. (fig.7)


3rd couplet.

Lines 1-2

4th and 5th girls make a “collar”, and the rest (starting with the outermost girls) go through it and diverge into two circles. (Fig. 8)

Fig. 8

3-4 line

Two girls in two circles simultaneously converge in pairs and circle (connecting their right shoulders, left hand to the side) 1 time and return to their place in the circle, and the other two girls at this time are circling around themselves, raising their right hand up.
