Jon Giswold on DANCE FEVER 1981

This is one of the best and most humiliating experiences that I have on tape (outside of my FIT video where I wear a singlet). I hope anyone who enjoyed the show will enjoy our performance.

    I loved watching this show back in the early 80s. This is when couples really through out everything. Miss it and the great music.

    I’m glad you posted this it is a great testament to authentic period dancing. So few people have any idea what the actual hustle era and disco era were about. Stand proud you pulled a great Bowie rip off. Solid spins and good extension….I’ll forgive you on your posture due to over-reaching ; ) People that don’t show respect have no class or understanding of an important phase in artist evolution….thank you for your artistic contribution.

    Hey Jon – Roland from Tampa here! Still listening to your “Private Workout” CD and got both your “Basic Training” books on my coffee table! My brother Ric was on Dance Fever as well – he and his partner Kathy danced to Bette Midler’s “Married Men” – got to the semi-finals too! R.I.P Ric – the dance scene in Tampa just ain’t the same without you. :*(
