Dancing was a part of our lives when we grew up. We’d twist, jive, boogie, break it down and walk on the moon. We loved to slow dance but also break out into a routine whenever a dance floor was around.
Tonight let’s look back at dancing in the 60s and 70s! Do you remember the dance halls, the first kisses, the dipping and the swirling? It was all so much fun…
From the 1950s to the 1970s, new dance fads appeared almost every week. Do you remember “The Swim”, the “Mashed Potato”, “The Twist”, “The Watusi”, “The Shake”, “The Pony”, “The Dog” and “The Chicken”?
What about the shimmy, the jerk, “the hitchhiker” or “the skate”?
Gotta love the first date outfits!
