The Chicken Dance/Macarena/Electric Slide/Hokey... You Get the Idea

It's electric, boogie woogie woogie.

Make no mistake, we at TLC love dancing. Weddings without dancing are like cake without frosting -- dry and boring. But while we are wholly in favor of the shaking of groove thangs by young and old alike, the line has to be drawn somewhere when it comes to worn-out, clichéd group dances. The Macarena should have died out a decade and a half ago, the last Electric Slide should have been performed last in 1982, and the Chicken Dance, which was probably brought to North America in the 11th century by Vikings, has been a groaner for roughly that long.

We'll make an exception for the conga, though. Everybody loves the conga.
