" You'll Get Hep and Keep in Step in... These cats are hip!
... These Kids sure know how to Jitterbug!"

Synopsis: This is NOT the INFORMATION/EDUCATIONAL movie done in the 1940's. This was one of the first "Teen Movies." Starring Freddy Stewart and June Preisser. During the Whitney High School election a snotty rich kids father buys his son's way to

class president. His competition uses music and dance to gain votes to try to beat him .... Guess who wins?. As usual, All cast members were well past high school age and many beyond college age in this film. There is no drinking, smoking, swearing or sex in this film either ... just good wholesome music and dance.

    Lots of Singing and Jitterbug dancing. This scene features Hollywood Style West Coast Swing / Lindy dance legends Dean Collins and Jewel McGowen. Dean Swing dances with four different Ladies in this scene.
