Disco with Donny and Marie
Heaton and Zimmerman
I had a reference question a while back where I had to explain Donny and Marie to a teenager. God, I felt old. If you are more than 40 years or so, you probably remember them fondly or with disdain. I doubt there is any middle ground. I think it was probably one of those shows that was best viewed when high. If you need schooling on Donny and Marie, click here. Although Donny and Marie are around in Vegas and other venues, they are not what they were in the late 70s. (As if anyone is.)
This book is purely dance instruction for disco-complete with cut out feet. I encourage that everyone learn some of the techniques presented such as the “Travolta Point” or the “Disco Chicken”. My dancing skills were never that good, but I think I can manage the Travolta Point without too much trouble. I would bet just about every library in the US had more than a few choices on disco dancing at the time, however I think we can let this go and hustle to the book sale. So break out your shiny shirt, shag cut, and puka shell necklace and get ready to boogie.
