Rockabilly

Rockabilly primarily refers to a particularly unique style of music which developed mostly between 1955 and 1959 and has maintained its style ever since without evolving into something similar but different as rock’n’roll has evolved into rock. 

Unlike other styles of RocknRoll dancing, rockabilly does not have a backstep. 

Rockabilly is NOT a linear dance [i.e. danced in a slot or along a line of dance], it is a rotary dance [i.e. the follower generally assumes a position and the leader moves around her].
