On a local television dance show in Idaho in February 1958, local teens dance to one of the biggest dance crazes out of the late-1950’s called The Stroll, which originated from American Bandstand. This dance was performed in a line formed with boys on one side and girls on the other, creating an isle between them. The boy and girl in the front of the line would meet up in the middle, grab hands and stroll their way down the line, as the other kids in the line would move their way up to the front using the same dance steps that the couple moving down the line would use, but move from side to side instead. When the first couple made their way down the line, another couple would meet in the middle and stroll down the isle. (taken from YouTube)

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\FROM BAUHAUS TO NOW HAUS//////////////////// NOW HAUS is to Post-Modernism what Bauhaus was to Modernism. NOW HAUS is about the collaboration of all artistic mediums to express the pastiche effects of modernization. Over time, these art forms have interacted and melded into our current state of culture: music #Loud Haus, architecture #Bau Haus, nostalgia #Our Haus, art #Schau Haus, and even the pursuit of a happy, health life #Gesund Haus. As a member of globalized youth, I will pay particular attention to French and German sources in addition to the predominance of American phenomena. A portion of the showcased posts will be from my own ongoing projects in the above mentioned domains.
