We First Saw 'The Stroll' On 'American Bandstand' In 1957. Who Remembers This?

Loong before modern line dances or soul trains, there was the Stroll. Created by the dancers on "American Bandstand," it was initially danced to the slow beats of Chuck Willis' hit "C. C. Rider." Willis' song, and the dance craze it inspired, earned him the nickname "King of the Stroll" in 1957. The dance was immortalized the following year when Canadian vocal group the Diamonds recorded "The Stroll."

The popularity of "American Bandstand" spawned many regionally produced teen dance shows. "Seventeen," featured in the video below, was produced in Iowa for high school kids.
