The Band Perry’s ‘Done’ Line Dance

The Band Perry is getting people on the dance floor with their smash hit “Done!”

For this month’s featured dance, we revive a classic, “After Midnight,” choreographed by Judy McDonald. Experienced dancers may remember this line dance to the Patsy Cline classic “Walkin’ After Midnight,” or the Bluegrass-Country-Funk version recorded by the Groovegrass Boyz.

A current trend to keep country line dancing modern, and to appeal to the younger generation, is to find a newer song that will go to an older dance. We’d like to thank Terri Andrews and some other instructors for suggesting this newer song by The Band Perry for this classic dance.

Choreographed by Judy McDonald

When dancing this to ‘Done’ by The Band Perry, there is a brief pause at 2:27. This happens in the 7th wall of the dance. Simply pause or sway after count 24 and re-start when the music kicks in again. There is a second pause in the dance, near the very end of the song, just dance right through to the end.
