Late 50s fashion and more Trad Jazz dancing

This video contains some fun (but very short) clips of young people dancing at Jazz festivals in the 1950s and early 60s.  Skip to 5.30 to get to the jazz section.

Amazing how fashions come and go, the girls dancing together at 6.02 wouldn’t look at all out of place if they started to dance in Brick Lane today and neither would the girls dancing together at 9.17 (love the hats).

Men’s fashions seemed to have moved on – what is the guy in the bowler hat at 9.14 wearing?
