The mashed potato label is misspelled. Of course if I could dance that well I probably wouldn’t mind if I had the occasional misspelled word.

The Swim looks like The Jerk.

Here's the Wiki on The Frug, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frug_(dance)

A lot of fun dances that I had forgotten.

... but any compendium of '60s dances that remembers the Madison is all right in my book. Of course, coming from Philly I would have appreciated seeing the 81.

I was in single digits back then. I guess time is relative.

We did The Swim, The Pony, and The Twist, maybe the Frug. I was a tween/teen.

Sometimes I had trouble doing the double step of the pony. But I loved it.
