Remember that little dance that Foley used to do, where he's put his hands on his knees and then open and close his knees while swinging his hands back and forth (geez, it's really hard to describe that motion) ... what was that "dance" called? The Charleston? The Watusi? Somebody help me out here.

I have never actually seen him do it, but what you are describing is a small part of the dance, the charleston.

Didn't Foley do that during his DUDE LOVE gimmick?

I thought the Charleston was the Ric Flair (or Jeff Jarrett) strut.

I always thought it was the Modified Billy White Shoes Johnson dance.

Watch "It's a Wonderful Life" - See Jimmy Stewart do the Charleston.

Not to split hairs or anything, but AWA is right -- It's *part* of what been widely accepted as the Charleston (wikipedia)

And trust me, friends, if you're ever going to be in a musical about the 1920s, you need to know how to do the stepping and kicking part AND the hands on the knees bit.

I mean, those Savoy ballroom guys... I couldn't carry their dance belts. But I can hold my own with the Charleston.

The Jeff Jarret- Ric Flair strut was the one used my Jackie Fargo years ago. The story down in Memphis wrestling is that Jackie kinda took Jeff under his wing and allowed him to use it.That was the story we grew up with around here anyway. Where Ric Flair got it I have no clue.

Didn't The Rock also force The Coach to do the Charleston during an interview once?

Coach didn't do it nearly as good as these guys, though.
