From Chicago Soul by By Robert Pruter:
"The Jerk (the dance) was not very popular among blacks, at least in Chicago. When the did do the Jerk, they generally combined it with the Twine which was similar but with more fluid and sweeping motions".
Fluid and sweeping sounds like work to me, I'll stick with the Woodbine Twine which directs you to "arch your back and stomp your feet, make yourself comfortable..." ....and I stop with the "make yourself comfortable" part, and grab a frosty beverage in the process. Cheers to the Woodbine Twine!
