1958. Grossly neglected R&B figure.   8

A time when TV seemed so much fun.

I've wanted to learn these moves since I was about 9 years old. Time to do it! Great song, too.   1

Theme: Learn to Dance! The Hand Jive is not a dance created by 'Grease.' They wanted an authentic 50's dance for the musical but didn't want to shell out the cash for the actual song, so they essentially lifted "Hand Jive" directly from this. Listen to the music, it's almost identical.   1
