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 appreciate our performance.

    If this is one of your most humiliating moments, then you have NOTHING to be ashamed of!

    I enjoyed watching the performance. I loved Dance Fever when I was younger, so I appreciate the fact that you posted this clip. Thank you.

    Don’t worry…..30 years from now fans of Lady Gaga will look back and cringe at the fact that they were fans of hers. You were a part of that world and you were just doing your thing.

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

  20. Kismo1 says:

    DAYUM!! Now that is dancing!!

    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. :*(

    why are they wearing shower curtains

  24. Gaylel1 says:

    I can see if Carrie Anne, Bruno and Len was on that show. That was before Dancing With the Stars.
