Sock Hops for High School Kids

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Sock hops were the most common dances in the 1950’s. They were mainly popular among high school kids, but were something that people of all ages could enjoy. They helped everyone to enjoy music and dancing more.

Although they were something that everyone could enjoy in the 50’s, times have changed since then. With every new piece of technology, the gap between generations seems to grow. Teenagers today find it hard to see how they relate to the teenagers of the 1950’s.
