Tijuana Brass Style

(c. 1967)


In keeping with the 60s tradition of inventing new dances to fit new music, Art Kalmer invented this style specifically to dance to the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass [AK67].

While it's unclear how many people actually danced these steps, they're an interesting look into the 60s mindset of constant innovation in both music and dance.

Art Kalmer notes that these patterns "will fit most Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass records."

Below is a sampling of tunes by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass that sound most like Art Kalmer's recommended track "Green Peppers."
