Southern Maryland Thang


The Southern Maryland Boot Scooters choreographed a dance to the song Southern Maryland Thang written by Donovan Farrell and featuring John Luskey, Lindz Owen, Donald Quade and Wes Ryce.  The song is a tribute to the hard working men and women of Southern Maryland!  We had a great time putting this dance together and Donovan Farrell arranged for the video tape.

The step sheet can be found on Kickit.com,  Enjoy!!

About Us



The Boot Scooters dance team was formed during the summer of 1995 by Bobby Phipps.

We are a group of energetic friends that love to dance. We perform at most of the local county fairs, car shows and charity events. We performed on TNN's Club Dance several times.

We practice every Wednesday evening from 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM at the Hotel Charles in Hughesville. We give free beginner's line dance lessons from 7:00 PM - 7:30 PM every Wednesday to anyone who is interested.

If your interested in joining our team, please contact us. There is no charge to be a member of this group except for the price of your dance shirts (approximately $15 each).
If you can count to 8 ... you can learn to line dance!!
