Peckin’ is not a dance but a vernacular movement within another dance. Frank Sebastion’s Cotton Club (not related to the New York Club) in Los Angeles is said to have done the first public performance routine with the “Peckin’ Motion” (Chicken) done by a group called the Three Chocolateers (Eddie West, Paul Black and Albert “Gib” Gibson) in 1934 and became a Swing and Ballroom sensation. The Three Chocolateers can be seen doing it in the feature length film entitled “New Faces of 1937” (clip on left) by RKO Radio films and “Murder at the Vanities (1934)”.
