Twist (from English twist - torsion), the American pair household dance. Muses. size 4/4. I was widely adopted in the 60th of the XX century thanks to the Black singer Chabbi Chekker. Twist doesn't demand the partner, it is possible to dance it alone. The movements are simple and easily available, new "tvistoplyask" replaced fashion with a rock'n'roll. Having lost partnership, the twist was a turning point in the history of simplification of mass dance. Pair dances began to be called "ball" and entered the category of sports competitions and competitions.


Despite repeated repetitions of rhythmic drawing, the dancer with the creative imagination can create infinite variations of the main pases.

Thanks to an episode in the well-known comedy of L. Gaidai "The Caucasian captive" will know about a twist at least and in the third millennium. Today not only remember a twist and know, but also with pleasure dance it at parties.

In figures of dance the maximum simplification — a swinging of hands, wagging of the case, scrolling standing is welcomed ("a crush of stubs"). One indispensable condition of dance is need always at least one foot to concern the earth, that is not to allow jumps. Synchronization of movements isn't obligatory. Dance gives advantages to girls who don't need to wait for the invitation of the gentleman now, and they can at desire independently enter it.
