Here Are Your Final Four Line Dances

With the final four hours of THON 2016 nigh, all of the traditions associated with the last few hours are almost upon us. Yes, family hour’s emotional slide show and Go Go Gadjet’s insane concert are just within our reach. But one of the best parts of the final four are the line dances. Unlike every other hour, the final four counts down the past four years’ worth of line dances. This tradition is particularly sentimental, especially for graduating seniors who have lived through four years of THON.

However, it’s been at least a year since we’ve seen some of these moves. So here’s a review of the dances that will be featured in the countdown to the end of these 46 hours:

2013 Line Dance

Theme: Inspire Tomorrow’s Miracles

Line Dance: 

Most Memorable Lyrics: 

Right and left… have a tiff / Watch out for that fiscal cliff!”

“Dance break, about to start / Think we’ll do that Gangnam part?


“In our hearts, we light a fire / Tomorrow’s miracles we inspire!”

Oh, and basically the whole chorus. It’s just so catchy!

Check out the full lyrics here.

2014 Line Dance

Theme: Redefine the Possibilities

Line Dance: 

Most Memorable Lyrics: 

“Feeling lost, look around! / Penn State lives all over town”

“Royal family, ay bay bay (pause) / What does the fox say?”

“Together, our dreams align / What’s possible is redefined”

THON 2015 Line Dance

Theme: Empower the Dreamers

Line Dance: 

Most Memorable Lyrics: 

“Barbour Barron are on board / 409, wins restored!”

“Did you know “apparently” / I’ve never been on live TV”

“That BOOM BOOM atmosphere / Kicking cancer out of here:

“Dreams grow in these small hours / make them real, BE EMPOWERED!”
