Turkey trot and more - American Vernacular Dance


Well-Known Member
So, I am interested in learning American vernacular dance, such as black bottom, animal dances such as turkey trot etc. If people can help me out by guiding to me appropriate youtube clips, or sites where I can learn more it would be greatly appreciated.

For example the following clip maybe Blackbottom? Am I correct?

Hey, just stumbled on this! Videos don't get a real high profile. Might come back "later." Have a book from the library about the Castles who thought the animal dances were danced in a vulgar fashion. I know there are some clip from a historic dance series that are on line...
