Inspired by the pogo stick, the pogo dance was popularized by punk rock fans in the late 1970s. The basic steps allow for a variety of interpretations, some of which might appear quite violent. Pogo dancers have their choice of…
a)Keeping their torsos rigid or thrashing them about.
b)Holding their arms stiffly at their sides or flailing them.
c)Keeping their legs together or kicking about.
d)Jumping straight up and down, jumping in any direction, or spinning in the air.
The dance was apparently created by Sex Pistols bass player Sid Vicious.
