Background on the creation of the Electric Slide:
In 1976, Neville “Bunny Wailer” Livingston wrote a catchy song called “Electric Boogie”. Then choreographer Silver created the electric slide, a 22-step dance to the song that incorporated grapevines and a series of forward and backward steps.
Over the next several years, this line dance really caught fire and became perhaps the most popular and most danced sequence in night clubs, at private parties, corporate events and just about any place that had enthusiastic fans looking to cut a rug with their friends.
