Big apple (dance)

The Big Apple is a line dance. It began at the Big Apple Night Club in Columbia, South Carolina, USA, around 1936. [[1]

One person, or a couple would stand in the middle of a circle and would call out moves for everyone else in the circle to perform at the same time.

Frankie Manning (and ?) choreographed a version of this dance for the movie "Keep Punchin", which featured Whitey's Lindy Hoppers. A video of the movie can be found at " class="external">
