The Twist

The dances and the songs were very unique back in the 1960's.i mean the names just got you wondering.the mashed potato, the fly, the monkey, the swim, the twist etc. But the twist was the most popular for a while. its simple dance steps made it easy for all ages. the movement was, place one foot forward & twist while rotating your hips from side to side. see simple but fun!
