We all know that sensational thrill that charges up the spine when we see that we have hit a strike. From the moment the bowling ball launches past our fingertips and thunders down the bowling lane in a straight line, to the precise moment is smashes the central bowling pin, our hearts are racing... but then comes the fun part.
We see all ten pins topple over, and it's like an epic slow motion starts to play as our hands stretch upward in a celebratory fist pump and our mouths stretch wide open in a happy yell of victory. Have you ever wanted to mix things up a little, though? If you're one of those bowling pros who smashes out strike after strike, feeling like a winner can be aided by mixing up your victory moves.
So why not boogie down the bowling lane with one of these 10 iconic dance moves? All eyes are on you anyway, you strike regular, you!
