This 18-count dance has been around for many, many years, and has seen thousands of variations. For example, some dancers will turn the first 8 counts into a vine right with a scuff and a vine left with a scuff, with an optional full turn on either or both vines. This is a very common variation. But the slides as shown in counts 1-8 above are presumably where the dance got its name, so we choose to offer it this way

In April of 2003, Ric Silver produced a 22-count contra line dance called The Electric (aka Electric Slide), which he claims to have choreographed in 1976.

The 18-count Electric Slide appears to be the one being danced worldwide.
