The beautiful and talented Chanzie and Stephen show us all how to do The Nitty Gritty dance like we wish we could. “The Nitty Gritty” was written by Lincoln Chase in 1963 and recorded by soul music singer Shirley Ellis. I love seeing dancers who really get into the song that they are dancing to. If you can’t get out of it you might as well get into it! If you enjoyed this dance video then you might also like to watch Let’s Stick Together.
