Predicting The THON 2021 Line Dance

In the immortal words of former Onward State editor Steve Connelly, “Dancer Relations captains, it’s almost time to head to the stage.”

With THON 2021 just hours away, it’s almost time to start jamming to yet another highly anticipated line dance. For those new to THON, the line dance is the song that Dancer Relations captains perform on stage every hour during THON to help dancers loosen up, stay alert, and have some fun.

Each year’s song is comprised of countless references to Dear Old State, pop culture, news, and everything in between. Plus, it’s typically one of THON-goers’ favorite experiences during the annual event.

Naturally, we took a stab at predicting what this year’s line dance may hold. Here’s a brief look at what we think we might hear this weekend:
