Dance Styles of the 1960s


The 1960s brought a whole new style of music and dancing.  Along with miniskirts and knee-high boots, sometimes referred to as go-go boots, came dances such as the Boogaloo, Twist, Monkey, Mashed Potato, Tighten Up, Freddie, Strut, Stroll, Loco-motion, Hitchhiker, Watusi, Hully Gully, Pony, Jerk, Limbo, Swim, Shimmy, the Bristol Stomp and more.  

I remember doing many of these dances, as I was in my teens and early 20s during this time.

I hope the video will bring back some happy memories of the 1960s.

Do you remember any of these dances?  Do you remember doing any of these dances?

Thank you for stopping by; and I hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past!
