The original form of Lindy Hop, the partner dance that accompanies swing jazz.
So named because the pioneers of the dance, such as Frankie Manning and Whitey's Lindy Hoppers, were regular dancers at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem.
Those cats are crouching too low for Hollywood style, they must be doing Savoy style. They're really swingin'!
A fusion of contemporary punk and rockabilly.
Often confused with psychobilly, a long dead (regardless of what some Tiger Army kiddies will tell you) British offshoot of rockabilly and trash.
Punkabilly is more of a good time, rockin' sound, sometimes with some elements of swing or jazz thrown in.
The Kings Of Nuthin' sure are one hard rockin' punkabilly band!
Petroleum based pomade used to style the hair. Favoured less in recent times due to all manner of modern waxes, hairsprays amd gels but still de rigeur amongst the swing, rockabilly, and greaser fraternities.
Can be used to create anything from a slicked back 1920s look to a 1950's pompadour.
Have you got any grease? I'm going Lindy Hopping tonight and I want my pomp to look right.
A partner dance popularised by American college kids in the 1930's. The short form of "collegiate shag". Related to the Charleston that came before and the Lindy Hop that came after.
Characterized by a six-count pattern and a close hold with bums sticking out.
Would you care to shag, Martha?
Why certainly Harold. I haven't danced for weeks!
