Ragtime Dance 1913 (The Grizzly Bear)

Posted by Dance

This is one of those informal “amimal” ragtime dances that preceded swing dance and to at least some extent set the stage for what was to come later.
The video is from a 1913 French film and the audio is from a 1910 piano roll. The song is George Botsford’s “The Grizzly Bear Rag” but I’m not sure if he actually did the piano roll.

  1. Sorry but your explanation is wrong this did not precede swing dance. God I don't know what this is..it just foolishness nothing more. Why do you post these dances that aren't related to swing dance?
