The Twist - All About The Craze That Rocks The Nation - 1963

"They call it the Teenagers gift to the Top Hat and Tails Set! It's that swinging, swaying, wiggling, waggling wonder dance that has turned out to be the greatest movement to hit the hi-toned playboys and playgirls since the Social Register rang up its first 400 names. Every party in every penthouse from Park Avenue to Sutton Place is now a Twist Party! Every mink coat that meets a dress suit immediately asks Do You Twist?" It's become the thing to do, old man, don't cha'know?"

It's hard to know just what to show you from this fabulous's all just so hip! So let's concentrate on the fashion...

Don't you feel like turning up the music? Let's Twist!


  1. This is really great. I love the twist. ;)

  2. Awesome! The starlet looks like she's having a lot of fun. And the woman on the right just below the photo of the magazine cover is a dead ringer for Joan Holloway.

  3. When i was a boy about 10 ,and i first heard the twist it was really exciting.... Not hard to understand the mania it caused....I can remember my parents going out to twist on New Years Eve...
    One of those one shot phenomenon,like Elvis and the Beatles.
    I actually got a response to an email i sent Chubby Checker last year to tell him how much of an impact the Twist had on me.

  4. A can't think of another dance that earned it's own magazine!
