Their extraordinary dancing skills and unique style have won them numerous awards. They are particularly good at jitterbug and lindy hop, dances from the 1940s and 1950s.
In the video, which has gone viral online, the dancers boogie-woogie their hips to Johan Blohm & The Refreshments.
A song called “Down the Road Apiece” became a hit in the country. Shortly after the song was released, “Johan Blom” became a household name.
It was at the Horn dance school. The couple danced to the popular song as others gathered to watch the jaw-dropping spectacle. There were only young people around, which gave a special charm to the old-school dance! The couple danced like they were 18 – no one believed their eyes how energetic and agile they were on the dance floor!
They are now back in Germany, in their home town of Dürmersheim. They always hold master classes and dance to their favorite songs. Are you ready to see the dance that shook the world? Watch the video below:
