Ron Mann 1992

The TWIST changed an entire generation. You moved your hips, you gyrated, you let your partner go and swivel like crazy. Never before had white America played so loose with its body. Coming along right when rock and roll needed a new jolt, the twist fast became an international phenomenon, and signaled the end of America’s WASP reserve. In a fast-paced mix of interviews and rare archival footage, TWIST features: Hank Ballard, American Bandstand Dancers, Chubby Checker, Joey Dee, Gladys Horton, Dee Dee Sharp, Mama Lu Parks & The Parkettes.
