Rare photos of Soviet times.
Today’s disco is no match with what it was then. Love, jealousy, tears, indecision, which broke destinies of lovers are the real genuine the emotion in the dances of those times.
The tradition to have musical evenings with incendiary movements originated many years ago. And indeed, the first in the USSR went “dancing”, “disco” appeared in the early 80s, and rooted in the minds of many. We are not saying that we go “to the dance” when really go to dance.
Alone on the dance didn’t go
Was always company, but the girls could afford to go two and two, when guys had to stick together, you suddenly start a fight! But they happened, and often. Especially it happened at the initiative of a strong “local” guys, in which there was a dance party.
Have them, by the way, in Culture Palaces, schools, parks, where there is a possibility to connect equipment
Most often it was a fenced area and with the entrance fee, ticket price could be 50 cents. Those who do not want to pay, was climbing a fence, if you had the chance. But it was not so easy. First, incrimination hares did a variety of “bases”: a fence anointed with oil; second, all the police on duty.
In Vogue then were the flared pants, long hair like girls and boys, “cool” was wearing jeans.

Now the main thing. First, put the music on special players, while playing one song, frantically looking for another. From the first notes learned, ABBA, Boney M., Dschinghis Khan, Eruption, the crowd was ecstatic. Watched it all a disc jockey, he was standing in the headphones and control the order of the tracks. To be friends with him was an important achievement, because he knows when to be a slow dance, it is possible to enjoy your favorite song. Congratulations on the birthday from a disc jockey – is considered the best and honorable gift.
