The Twist Riverheart High School

Photo Details

Riverheart High School students doing the Twist in the baggage car of a train. I have no idea what they're doing in a baggage car dancing - perhaps it was the only space big enough and clear enough to dance? You can see that they have a live band - and you can see that our fashion back then wasn't the best. But then, the Hawaiian shirt would fit right in today. And the Twist was a fun dance!
