Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Animal Dance craze was directly correlated with the popularity of ragtime music (improvisational melodies with syncopated beats, from African-American traditions). There were an endless varieties of animal dance fads, such as: Horse Trot, Kangaroo Hop, Duck Waddle, Squirrel, Chicken Scratch, Turkey Trot, and Grizzly Bear. Both music and dance reflected the vibrancy of modern, urban influences. The music is typified by Scott Joplin's rags and made popular to the middle class by "Alexander's Ragtime Band," published in 1911.show more
