The Twist reigned in popularity with dancing teens and 20-somethings - starting out as a song and becoming quite possibly the biggest dance craze of the 1950s and 1960s.
"Twist" came into being in America from Congo during slavery. Joel Walker Sweeney’s "Grape Vine Twist" became a great hit when people realized that Twist was a simple form wherein one had to just grind his hips while standing at one spot.
Hank Ballard wrote the Twist's original song in 1955 when he observed teenagers doing the dance that had yet to be officially named. It debuted on airwaves in 1958, and was played on the popular American Bandstand television show, where teens followed obediently along to the song's lyrics and "twisted" their way through each bar of music. The dance was so contagious that it caught the eye of a record producer who went on to hire Chubby Checker to perform it on another TV show in 1959.
The next step for Checker was to introduce the Twist to a huge American audience, and beyond, with a performance on American Bandstand. The result was that the entire world began to twist and shake to the energetic song.
The Twist went on to become the most popular dance in its day, and the choreography was simple - a 2 count twisting motion, "back and forth" using only the hips. Since the Twist was born right around the time of the popular beach movie fad, the dance fit right in on movie sets. Traditional dance styles, especially partner dancing that require glides and turns, were not performable in the sand. However, the Twist fit in perfectly and led the way for many other dance moves of the 1960s including the Monkey and the Swim. The Twist didn't require much use of the feet - just a body wiggle and you were ready to rock.
