A Wave of New Dances

The popularity of ' The Twist' and its commercial success encouraged other artists to come up with their own dance craze .

All these new dances were uncomplicated and could be danced without a partner . A sense of freedom had hit the popular dance world. You didn't have to hang on to anyone . You could  ' do your own thing '.

The strong Rock and Roll back beat of The Twist gave way  to Rhythm and Blues  and later Soul. We were prepared to try anything new.

Some dances never took off . But others stuck around for some time.

It inspired me to wear a few more holes into the linoleum.
