 The Stroll
            The Stroll was a popular line dance of the 50's.

The stroll as conceived by American dancers is often credited to having first appeared on the 1950s show  
   American Bandstand
.  In general, couples line up opposing each other, men in one line, women on the other
   line, while a single couple dances, struts or grapevines through the line.
   Note that in the American Bandstand picture below, the men and women are in separate lines facing each
   other. The couple in the middle, begin dancing from the front of the line moving to the back of the line.

Bandstand - the Stroll




1. Form two lines facing each other.
2. Women in one line men in the other.

3. One man and one women from the head of the line get together in
    the middle between the two lines and dance  their way to the back
    of the line.
4. Another man and women from the head of the line repeat item 3
    above. This gets repeated over and over until the end of the dance.
 . What are the other people who are in line doing?
5. They are waiting their turn to get to the head of the line. Once there,
    they take their turn at dancing down the middle to the other end of
    the line as a couple.

Doing the Stroll

        Dance Steps:
        As a DJ I am interested in getting my partying crowd dancing and having fun quickly.  Therefore, I have
       simplified the dance steps to minimize the amount of time it takes to learn the basic steps.
   6. The men in line begin with their left foot. The men tap their left foot to their left side, then to their right side.
       do this 3-1/2 times: (Left, Right), (Left, Right), (Left, Right).  (Left,  then place the right foot behind the left
       foot). The last part is often called a grapevine.
   7. Once the Right foot is behind the Left foot, start over with ( L,R ),  (L,R ), ( L,R), (L,  then place the Right
       foot  behind the Left foot) and start over again. Times routine above.
       What are the ladies doing?
   8. The ladies are dong the exact opposite of the men's steps.

      Keep on dancing! Regards - Dancing DJ Mel
