Are these real 1970s dance moves, or did we make them up?

If you got the moves, this quiz will be a breeze for you!

Has anyone ever told you that "You got the moves?" That means you're a pretty good dancer! Dancing has always been a fun way to move around to your favorite song. It makes people happy, it can be a great source of exercise and you can even make money from it.

Let's take it back to the groovy decade of 1970. See if you can tell whether these were real dance moves or something we made up.

Good luck!

  1. Dance move: The Hustle
  2. Dance move: The Staple Duster
  3. Dance move: The Piggy Barn
  4. Dance move: The Bump
  5. Dance move: YMCA
  6. Dance move: Green Charlie
  7. Dance move: Funky Chicken
  8. Dance move: The Lawnmower
  9. Dance move: The Moon Blocker
  10. Dance move: The Bus Stop

Are these real 1970s dance moves, or did we make them up?

"Here's the moment of truth. You got 9 out of 10." "Let's get loose! You aced this quiz. Good job!" I only missed #8. I never heard of or danced to "The Lawnmower."

8/10. I knew most of them, due to the fact that I heard them mentioned (and I have "The Hustle" in my music collection), but I have never heard of the Lawnmower, or the Moon Blocker.

It would appear that it's not a 70s dance, or those young kids 40 years later sure know their dance history.

9 of 10. I danced my way through this one until I got run over by "The Lawnmower". Never heard of it. In the '70's, full disclosure, I really liked the Disco music but if my buddies, at the time found out, they would have dis-owned me. I had a great time clubbing with a few girls in my neighborhood on Friday nights. I had to make excuses why I couldn't make the Friday card games with the guys... I won without having to play cards!!
