Dance class for the documentary 'Dance Party: The Teenarama Story.' Teens learned the dances of the 1960s, particularly hand dance, for the authenticity of the documentary. The original footage from the television show 'The Teenarama Dance Party' could not be located so the filmmaker created reenactments of the show.

Performance. Part of the Teenarama Collection. Transcribed from physical asset: Eclipse. Undated.
