100+ performers do rollicking country line dance at same time

September 9th, 2020

A line dance is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps.

One of the most popular line-dances everyone’s probably heard of is the Macarena. What we’re about to watch now is more related to country music, and country-western line dance specifically.

If the idea of getting 100 dancers together to do a routine has ever crossed your mind, then we have a great video for you.

It’s super entertaining to see a hundred people nailing those moves with such timing and precision.

The top things you need to know about line dancing are that line dancers dance in one or more lines and they all face each other or the same direction.

Most importantly, line dancers are not in physical contact with each other. Have you heard of the Voghera Country Festival in Italy? It’s one of the biggest and most anticipated country festivals in Europe.

At first it was for Independence Day, and the idea was to get together and have fun.

Then the organizers changed the name to VCF, and it became an annual festival. Some of the best American artists come to dance the country Line Dance, the Two-Step, West Coast Swing and the Catalan Style, and to compete with their colleagues from Europe.

It’s easy to agree that dance is always a great option for bringing two cultures together.

So, during the 2017 Voghera Country Festival dance competition, the Wild Country group amazed everyone with their “One Hundred” performance.

More than 100 line dancers appeared on stage and blew everyone away with their phenomenal choreography, which was done by Adriano Castagnoli.

Having a truly American event like this one in the heart of the European culture does a lot for bringing people closer, and it’s an excellent example of dancing away all cultural differences.

The main goal is always to have fun, and that’s what the performers did here. For those who don’t know, Wild Country is a group of dancers from Italy, and this is their way to show their love for American culture.

As the dancers line up to put on a show, “You Can Depend On Me” by Restless Heart plays in the background.

Whether it’s women and men, boys and girls, everyone is part of an outstanding routine that will leave you in awe. It’s smooth and everyone seems to be having a great time—and don’t even get us started on how perfectly synced all the dancers are. If you didn’t know country-western dance was a thing in Italy, this is a great opportunity to learn something new.

All the dancers wear jeans, white shirts and cowboy hats.

It’s a delight to watch the performance of so many people whose outfits and dance styles match up perfectly. Adriano, the choreographer, and his partner, Monia, are in the front row. The chemistry between the two is just adorable!

Adriano and his group know how to heat up the atmosphere.

The video was published on Castagnolli’s official YouTube channel with 26,100 subscribers.

It was viewed over four million times, and people seem generally overwhelmed by the whole concept. We enjoyed watching an American themed event in the country shaped like a boot!

It’s clear that the Italians did it with a lot of love.
