Mood: on fire
Most of us know, that Rock and Roll started in 1950s with singers like Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. There was nothing like it in on Earth. It unleased all kinds of wild feelings and movements.
However, I must emphasis that kids jived or jitterbugged to rock because R & R dance moves hadn't been invented yet. "The Jive" and "The Jitterbug" were dances created by young people during the big band era in the 1930s and 1940s. Kids, then, stole their parent's music and made it their own in the 1950s.
It wasn't until the Twist came along in the early 1960s that rock and roll dancing came into its own. The Twist was so popular, it made number one on the charts in 1960 and 1962. It was Chubby Checker that popularized that craze and other innovative dances like "The Fly", "The Pony" and "The Hully-Gully".
Would you believe that Cubby Checker isn't in "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" to this day? Unbelievable!
Energetic dancing defines who we are and who we want to be. How can you grow old if you keep "rocking on" to the wildest music on Earth?
