Now we are doing the stroll


Did You Know? - The Stroll was both a slow rock 'n' roll dance and a song that was popular in the late 1950s.[2]

Billboard first reported that "The Stroll" might herald a new dance craze similar to the "Big Apple" in December 1957.

"The Stroll" was written by Clyde Otis and Nancy Lee and was recorded by the Canadian group The Diamonds (Mercury 71242). The Diamonds' versions also featured a saxophone soloist.

The original version of the song reached #4 on the Billboard pop charts, #5 on the R&B charts, and #1 on the Cashbox charts.

In the dance two lines of dancers, men on one side and women on the other, face each other, moving in place to the music. Each paired couple then steps out and does a more elaborate dance up and down between the rows of dancers.

Dick Clark noted the similarity of the dance to the Virginia reel. It was first performed to "C. C. Rider" by Chuck Willis on American Bandstand. Link Wray's "Rumble" was also a popular tune for doing the stroll.

When 1950s nostalgia came to the forefront in the 1970s, The Stroll saw renewed public awareness. It was used in the film American Graffiti (1973) during the scene at the high school dance and is mentioned in some of the lyrics in the musical Grease.
