Hope you enjoy The Electric in it's Correct form
  - and try the double line version - it's wild!!!!!
 
Below is the Original Complete 1976 Choreography printing that was handed out to patrons at the premiere. Recently while rehearsing for an upcoming performance, I noticed that during the 2 weeks between being sent to the printers and the actual performance numerous changes and additions were made and never got into the original printing. I have revised the text to reflect this.  This is not for beginners.... but I would love to see you linedancers try it in competition.
