Is there anything more classic than going to the hop?
This classic song is the perfect soundtrack to watch these teenagers of the ’50s dancing the night away. The Danny & the Juniors hit, “At the Hop” was released in 1957, and this best-selling song made it to #1 on the charts in 1958. And, it was so great to dance to. Watch as these kids get moving to this wonderful song. You can almost imagine a game of spin the bottle after the dancing is done for the night.
It’s a classic we’d know anywhere and what fun it is! People dancing to this innocent music, ladies in dresses and fellas in suits and button-up shirts. From the slicked hair to the full skirts and the rock-infused swing dance moves, this is a fun video of how dancing used to be. Have a look below. And, be sure to check out one of the dance crazes mentioned in this song, the Stroll, right here.
