This post is perfectly timed to help me deal with my holiday angst. I had already decided that instead of getting outraged at my mother's incessant button-pushing over the holidays, I'm going to break into a rousing 10-second version of The Twist, complete with outsized dance moves, every time she crosses a boundary. (Which should keep me Twisting continuously for the entire week of our visit, but I digress.)

When my husband pointed out this could get a bit old, I offered to break it up with other 60s dances but I didn't know any. And Metafilter came to my rescue! Thanks, ecorrocio.

(um, sort of, through the sidebars on all the Twist videos. But this is great!)

One of my goals in life since I was a Bandstand watchin' teen was to learn to do the Mashed Potato - now even at my advanced can do!
Frustrating - as I'm a really good dancer (frug, watusi, stroll, Bandstand fast dance.etc) but I just can't get the footwork on the "Potato" and I've watched the videos like a million times!

Now I want to go watch Hairspray (the original).
