1960s Dance Craze
The 1960s was a time of great fun and change, and this was especially true in the realm of dance. The 1960s saw a number of popular dance crazes that swept the nation, such as the Twist, the Mashed Potato, the Monkey, and the Swim. All of these dances required no prior dance experience and could be done with just a few simple steps, making them easy to learn and lots of fun to do. People of all ages and backgrounds could be seen dancing the Twist, the Mashed Potato, and the Monkey in dance halls and beach parties everywhere. The 1960s dance craze was an important part of the decade, helping to bring people together, no matter their age or background.
Music historians often enshrine the 1960s as the best decade for popular music, because it’s when rock became a countercultural movement led by giants like Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. It was also the decade of soul music, with the emergence of the eminent Stax and Motown record labels.
