*** That dance is still done as "Shtick" (dances done in order to please the Bride and Groom) to this day at some Jewish weddings. (specifically, at this troper's parents wedding... where there was a guy balancing a bottle, a cardboard, and 4 bottles on top of the cardboard)
** ''Most'' productions use trick hats. This Troper attended her sister's middle school production, where six girls did the Bottle Dance with no tape, no string, just flat-topped hats and bottles. In three performances, only a single hat was dropped, even when they went from standing to kneeling and back!

** Some of them have even found the dance is ''easier'' without a trick hat. You just wear a hat big enough, push in the top, then rest the bottle in the dent. The tape to hold the bottle in place often isn't strong enough anyway.

* DarkReprise - The chorus comes on and sings "Tradition" after Tevye [[spoiler: disowns Chava]].
* The Broadway revival (at least) had the chorus reprise the dance of "Tradition," too - only now it's a dance of entrapment and anguish from which no-one can escape.
