    adverb

    Is there a difference between:
    1-They merrily danced all night.
    2-Marrily, they danced all night.
    3-They danced all night merrily.

    No. No real difference. (The first one is the most natural.)

    I would say 'danced merrily' rather than your number 1, though it's ok.
