Predicting The THON 2022 Line Dance

It’s that time of year again, folks. THON will officially be back in person at the Bryce Jordan Center in just a few short hours. And, to quote former Onward State editor Steve Connelly, “Dancer Relations captains, it’s almost time to head to the stage.”

For those who may not know, the Dancer Relations captains come together and perform the line dance on stage every hour throughout THON Weekend to keep dancers entertained, awake, and stretched out.

The line dance’s lyrics compile the past year’s most memorable moments with references to Happy Valley news, pop culture, worldwide events, TikTok dances, and so much more. 

Per tradition, our staff took a stab at predicting what this year’s line dance may look like. Here’s what we hope to hear this year:
