Dance Crazes: The Twist

Berlin, Deutschlandtreffen, tanzende Jugendliche

The Twist was inspired by rock and roll music of the late 1950s. It originated from a song written by Hank Ballard which was subsequently re-recorded by Chubby Checker in 1959. The song would be a number one hit the following year and again in 1962.
