EARL “SNAKE HIPS’ TUCKER (1935?)

[“Earl ‘Snakehips’ Tucker (1905 – 1937) became known as the “Human Boa Constrictor” after the dance he popularized in Harlem in the 1920s called the “snakehips (Dance)”. He built his reputation by exhibiting his odd style of dance, which involved a great deal of hip motion. The snakehips dates back to southern plantations before emancipation. Tucker would make it appear that he was as flexible as a snake, and eventually the dance became his calling card.” — Wiki.
