In the late 1950s and early 1960s, a new teen dance craze seemed to take off weekly on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand program, which aired daily in the late afternnoon when most teenagers were already home from school. This week, Joel Najman features a baker’s dozen of famous and not-so-famous teen
dance crazes from the 1950s and 60s. Roll up the rug and twist, stroll,
and do the monkey on a summer evening.
