    It's a little before my time, but is it the same thing or a variation on the jitterbug?

    Thanks for sharing. Growing up in a small Kansas town we never wanted for something to do. As a teenager in the 50's, all we needed was a radio and we all danced. If there wasn't room in the house, we danced in the street under the street light. Life was simple and good then.

    I think that young mans legs are made of rubber. They are extremely talented.

    Thanks so much. They are wonderful dancers. That young man is rubber from his waist to his feet.Love his white socks with his penny loafers. I love watching others dance. Remember Gene Kelly,Fred Astaire,Ginger Rodgers, etc., etc. Ballroom dancing is one of the prettiest ever. I use to love to dance, fast only. Last I danced was about 18 years ago.

    Wow, wow, wow! Thanks for sharing...I'm really familiar with the Shag, since SC is supposed to be (or was??) the home of the dance....those kids looked great!

    Loved the kids. Did you watch any of the other videos? The one with Bob Hope and James Cagney really brought memories. Don't make them like that any more. "sigh"

    my legs/feet won't move that way anymore. used to love to dance still would if I could. Old age does have some disadvantages. love the video.

    How refreshing to see two young people really enjoying their dancing. So much better than the stories we hear about students fighting to be able to do the "grind" or whatever they call that dance that looks like they are having sex on the dance floor!

    That was wonderful. Thanks. I had heard the kids mention this video, but am not one to try to watch UTube; so figured I would just miss it. That was great--I can remember having that much fun on the dance floor when I was WAY younger than I am now. Maybe they'll look back someday on this as fondly.....
