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.
