Rock & Roll Dance 1956 (Rip It Up)

Posted by Dance

From the movie: DON’T KNOCK THE ROCK 1956
I would argue that this is the best group swing dance number of the the 1950’s. The dancers include Freda Angela Wyckoff, Joe Lanza, Lou Southern and the most often seen swing dance couple of the 1950’s Gil & Nikki Brady whose performance in this number was one of their best. Gil is still with us and he’s still wearing those distinctive glasses that always made him stand out in in a crowd. The band is of coarse “Bill Haley and His Comets”.

  1. This is really amazing! Such an explosion of energy! This is rock ‘n’ roll dancing at its best, exciting, wild, exuberant…I can understand, that the movie “Rock around the Clock” caused a revolution in the music and dance world in 1956!
