You're no square so you'll want to learn these moves, a bit of history from 1960. I recently did this for a performance - it was great fun, the students really enjoyed it, they invented individual dances and scripted them with stick figures. Here is a sample of the drawings they drew:-

We filmed the whole dance sequence and included cutaways of individual performances.


WE STARTED with a bit of history from Aaron at the...

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis


WE LEARNED the twist moves with Jennifer Parker and squished a bug. Get bug squishing with Jennifer's Twist Dance Steps
