Carla asks: What dance move was Popular in 1964?

 

 Well, Carla, that’s easy to answer… It’s Almost Summer so hey, everybody! Let’s do the “Swim”!

The 1964 tune “C’mon and Swim,” by Bobby Freeman inspired a 60’s dance craze that combined dancing with swimming! “The Swim” was basically “swimming on the dance floor”. To do the “Swim,” you just swing your arms and shoulders in an alternating pattern to the beat of the music. Toss in a few hip swaggers and you’ll have it down. And, if you wanted to switch things up a bit, you could mimic a treading water motion with both arms out to their sides or pull out your ‘I’m drowning’ nose plug while one arm sinks to the floor. Try it!
