This article is dedicated to the wedding dance floor. That simple piece of hardwood brings out the passion in all who cross her on that wedding night. For the bride and groom it starts the fire for the first night of their new union. For the older people in the crowd maybe it might rekindle a spark from times past. For all the single people it is their chance to impress someone special leading to a hookup that all weddings are famous for. The mixing of good music with liquid courage brings out the dancer in all of us.
You have to love the guy willing to try to do the worm, or the moon walk, maybe the running man. The dance moves themselves are priceless; Thriller, the Robot, break dancing backspin, the shopping cart, the sprinkler, the lawn mover, M.C. Hammer slide, and the list goes on and on. My personal favorite, which I performed at the wedding after the J.D. kicked in, "the motorcycle pickup". It's an advanced move which requires two people. The first person, aka the rider, must start up his hog and cruise it around the dance floor looking for that special someone, aka the pickup person, who hopefully is a hot lady looking to jump on and cruise around with you. All these moves are classics in the annuls of dance history. But don't overlook that occasional slow dance for that chance to snuggle up tight. For me the night ended great with my beautiful wife extremely impressed by my powers of dance.
I wish all you wedding goers good luck this upcoming wedding season. And a big cheers to the wedding dance floor, you bring everyone together for a night of fun, celebration, and unity that all will cherish for a lifetime.
