The Sock Hop Collection DVD Overview
Sock hops were held as early as 1944 by the American Junior Red Cross to raise funds during World War II.They then became a fad among American teenagers in 1948.Sock hops were commonly held at high schools and other educational institutions, often in the school gym or cafeteria. The term came about because dancers were required to remove their hard-soled shoes to protect the varnished floor of the gymnasium.The music at a sock hop was usually played from vinyl records, sometimes presented by a disc jockey.Occasionally there were also live bands. The popularity of sock hops coined the phrase Bobby soxer; which described the fans of Traditional pop music.
