Dance moves are like any trend: some come and go almost instantly, but some we remember for many years afterward. This video gives you a little trip down memory lane, showing you what may be one of the most fun dances of the 1960s. The Swim originated from singer Bobby Freeman’s 1964 hit “C’mon and Swim.” Fun fact: the song was produced by the young Sly Stone (known then as Sylvester Stewart). This video shows some great characters having a good time doing the swim: we love the costumes most of all. Most of us remember this dance very well, but if you’d like a refresher, there are instructions. Some have said this dance was based on the Hully Gully, but others say that the two are fairly distinct. You can see the Hully Gully here for comparison. Check out this insanely fun video below.
