Christmas music is a huge part of the holiday season. Every year, people crank up tunes like “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” and proudly sing them at the top of their lungs. But did you ever realize that you can also dance to Christmas songs? And not just any dance, but line dance!
For country folks, line dancing is the perfect form of entertainment and exercise in one. There are popular line dances choreographed to some major country hits, such as Alan Jackson‘s “Good Time” and Brooks & Dunn‘s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”
Believe it or not, there’s also a few country Christmas-themed line dances out there that you can learn. One of those dances is called the “Rockin’ Christmas” line dance, and it was choreographed in Sweden of all places!
Annette Hagberg is the mastermind behind this festive beginner’s line dance, which she choreographed in 2013. The dance is set to the tune of Robert Wells & Little Mike’s “A Very Merry Rockin’ Good Christmas,” which is at the perfect tempo for beginners.
The Swivelfeet Linedancers were happy to show off the moves to the dance. The group is made up of people of all ages, proving that anyone can learn the “Rockin’ Christmas” line dance, no matter how young or old. These talented dancers shared a video of the dance on their personal YouTube channel, that way everyone can learn the moves!
It won’t take long at all for you to pick up on the “Rockin’ Christmas” dance. The moves are simple kicks, taps, claps, and turns, and the repetition makes it easy to pick up on. By the end of the four-minute video, you’ll be dancing around your living room like a pro.
The Swivelfeet dancers are also great teachers, and they’re a blast to watch. They were having so much fun showing off the moves, and even went all-out with cowboy-themed costumes.
