For most of us, whether musically inclined or otherwise, a certain song has the ability to transport you back to a moment in time. Whether we realise it not, our lives have a soundtrack of all the music you’ve heard or loved throughout. From the lullabies your mother sang to you as a baby, to the funeral march, and everything in between.
And even more fun are the dances that come with the music! Over our lifetimes, there have been numerous dance crazes that took over our Friday and Saturday nights.
Doe you remember these ones?
The Jitterbug was popular swing style dance from as early as the 1930s. Reminisce with this Jerry Lewis version!
Dancing was a true art form back i the ’50s – although we’re sure the parents of the young’uns out dancing like this didn’t think so at the time!
The backbreaking dance that we all think we can win – or at least we did a few years ago!
Oh, just try to keep your legs still when this one comes on!
And this one is impossible not to get up and move to.
This is a bit slower, but you’ll no doubt remember grooving in the early ’60s to the Mashed Potato.
The kids don’t know it, but long before Kylie Minogue brought it back, we were getting down on the dance floor to Little Eva and the Loco-Motion.
Get up and dance, no one’s judging. We’re in the ’70s now (in case you didn’t notice)!
Oh, Village People. This was the late ’70s.
You can’t go past dances from the ’70s without this classic that is guaranteed, to this day, to get everyone at a party up.
