Some historians have traced the “Truckin’ Dance” way back to the old Minstrel Shows of the 1830’s in Louisville, Kentucky with the dancing of Dan Thomas Rice (Jump or Daddy Jim Crow). Rice did a few steps that are known as ‘Truckin’ today. Rice introduced his Jim Crow dance at Ludlo and Smiths Theatre in Louisville Kentucky. Learn more on the Street Swing Page
