I've been watching a lot of old dance videos, lately.....

The Stroll. There seem to be quite a few videos of many different versions.  This is the way I remember learning it from someone I dated mannnnnny, many years ago.  I was talking to my mom this afternoon, she's 75, and this one is from a few years past her high school days, but she knew it. In fact, she says it often gets played by the DJ when she goes roller skating (yeah, she's 75, and goes skating a couple of mornings each week!....she competed a bit, with her sister. back in the '50s, and she still skates....very well, I might add). Apparently there's a couple skate version of The Stroll that they do, too. I just had to share it, since I was posting some dance videos, earlier. :)

  1. Hey, yer cultural materialist type guy over here (have not been the same) sees the Stroll as a classic 50s sex thing (Have not been the Same? Google Slow and that title--it IS the true origin of the Seattle grunge scene).

    The Stroll? Couldn't get it out of yer system otherwise.
    Just sorta rolls along . . . don't it?
