Vintage Swing Dancing and 1950s Teen History
(1950s rock n' roll, 1950s juvenile delinquency, teen idols, 1950s teen fashions,
hot rod culture, rock n' roll dance styles, teen movies of the 1950s.)
1950s juvenile delinquency and the history of 1950s street gangs are the interrelated subjects of Rockinswing's first "major" blog.
This blog is actually the size of a free e-book, and is accompanied with 100's of vintage photographs and newpaper accounts, as well interviews with former gang members and surviving court documents.
Below is the video trailer of the blog. Check it out.

Below is a beginner-friendly instructional video in 1950s style "double-time" jitterbug, the type of swing dancing that was done by actual teenagers in 1950s after-school tv dance shows.
It isn't Smooth Lindy as seen in 1950s rock n' roll drive-in movies, but it is the type of simplified swing dancing that was done on shows like "American Bandstand."
Unlike lindy, this style can be learned completely on-line
