The fifties saw a big change in the dance moment in American history.  Television suddenly allowed millions of viewers the chance to see exactly how to do the dance moves that went with their favorite songs. This led to unprecedented popularity for dances like the Madison, the Stroll, and the most iconic 50s dance, the Hand Jive. Latin influences like the Cha-Cha became overnight sensations, and dances from the 40s, such as swing and the Jitterbug, evolved into even more complex choreography.  Here’s an opportunity to go back to the fifties and dance and snack on food from that era. RSVP: Kristy-503-744-0105
