"Electric Boogie" was written by Bunny Wailer (Neville Livingston).  I spoke to Mr. Wailer yesterday 2/11/06 who states - no matter what the internet says, he wrote and recorded this song prior to Bob Marley's death in 1981 as Bob had played on the original recording.  He is checking his records for a more accurate date for me.

BEGIN DANCE AGAIN

 

More advanced dancers can vary steps with turns (single and double)in place of grapevines or slide, slide, slide (The Electric Slide)-

Charleston kicks (14 & 18) touch behind or hand to floor (16 & 20) -

Hop may be substituted with Tour en l'air (turn in the air) or double tour.

This is the basic framework for the dance. Once it is learned, variations on the theme are listed in the complete choreography and even this is only a working model.  Other variations are acceptable as long as they stay within the framework.

This was originally choreographed for professional dancers and was done in 2 lines facing each other. They should BOX each other - that is to say, circle the opposite dancer. This version was only done a few times as I found that it was much too difficult for non-dancers and therefore only taught it with single lines facing one direction at VAMPS. I hope that someday, this will be revived as it is lots of fun.
