1970's TEEN DANCE SHOW FROM PHILA. - GREAT NOSTALGIC VIDEOS OF HOW WE DANCED THEN!
1970's - Many folks liked Rock AND Disco, but would never admit it.

Girls liked to dance, guys LOVED to dance with girls.

We danced to everything.

I miss those days.

But here is a video of a famous Philly teen dance show mogul who tried to make his own 'Dick Clark's American Bandstand' type of empire in the city where it was born. They ended up in syndication all over the U.S.A. & Canada. Notice the similarity between him and Eugene Levy's "Mel's Rock Pile" character on SCTV. They copied him, he was such a caricature then:











1978 - During the height of 'Disco' :

This brings back memories.

A dance partner and I won the All Disco Dance Champ in 1976 at Indiana University ( with a student population of 35,000 students).

Yes I danced quite often like those moves in the videos and loved every minute of it!

I would watch Soul Train on Saturday mornings/early afternoons ever since 1971 (the earliest I can recollect watching it) - right before American Bandstand at 3pm, i believe. Great Memories, great dance styles, great clothes, GREAT HAIR!

Thanks

Thanks,

I thought I had never missed one of their shows but incredibly, this one was it.
It tells a lot of truths, namely, guys secretly liked Disco. Once it became un-popular, by word of mouth (mid 1980), because one person didn't like it, guys everywhere became ashamed of admitting that they liked it. The music, the dance, the atmosphere brings back a LOT of memories.
