Looking Back On The Last Four Years Of Line Dances

With the final hours of THON 2017 descending upon us, dancers, spectators, and families alike are preparing for the traditions that come with them. One of the most fun and nostalgic practices of the Final Four is counting down the line dances of the last four years, which leads up to the one of last performances of the 2017 line dance.

Anyone who’s not a senior won’t remember all four line dances, but even then, our seniors at their last THON might need a refresher. Here’s a recap of the last four line dances along with the lyrics and memorable moments from each of them:

2014 Line Dance

Theme: Redefine the Possibilities

Final Lyrics: “For The Kids, we ensure / That one day there’ll be a cure / Together, our dreams align / What’s possible is redefined”

2015 Line Dance

Theme: Empower the Dreamers

Final Lyrics: “Paint a face in the moon / Look closely and you’ll see yours, too / Dreams grow in these small hours / make them real, BE EMPOWERED!”
