2)A partner dance from the 1950s based upon a 6-count pattern. A rather simplistic descendent of the more complex and exciting Lindy Hop. Danced to rockabilly, early rhythm 'n' blues, rock 'n' roll and sometimes swing, although Lindy is the preferred dance.
1) first chap~ Get off the fence Hortense! Dig those real gone gates! They totally send me!
second chap~ Sir, are you talking jive to me?

2)I'm knackered, I was jiving all night at the club. The Lindy Hoppers weren't too impressed though as they didn't play much swing.

Shortened spelling of pompadour. A hairstyle popular amongst rockabilly and greaser males.
The hair is dressed with grease and combed back from the forehead and also up so that some height is gained.

Females may also have a similar style coupled with a ponytail but pins and grips are used in place of grease.
Gimme some grease! My pomp is wilting!
