Fake Disco Moves

I love the names of these moves, especially "Funky Elbows" and "Shoulder Sniff."

For some reason I am reminded of this classic video.

The Funky Four Corners is pre disco but a real dance. Here's how to do it:

There are variants such as the Funky Eight Corners and the Funky 16 Corners. You can hear more than you probably want to here:

I’m old enough to remember when learning how to disco-dance was a big deal (and big business). There were dozens of books available on it (home video wasn’t a thing yet) and dance studios like Arthur Murray couldn’t keep up with demand. The main reason why guys were interested was because disco dancing was seen as a great way to meet women and get laid.

...which, of course, is the main reason guys are interested in anything. Except for sports during a game, probably.

The only dance I know is "The Elevator" (there are no steps).
