The beautiful and talented Chanzie and Stephen show us how to do The Nitty Gritty dance. “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! You might also like to watch Let’s Stick Together.
