The Origins & Evolution of Cell Block Dances

Cellblock dances have their roots in the prohibition era, a period in American history marked by the outlawing of alcohol and the rise of organized crime. In the 1920s and 30s, speakeasies flourished, often operated by infamous gangsters such as Al Capone and Lucky Luciano. These establishments were often raided by law enforcement, leading to arrests and subsequent incarceration in "cell blocks."

Despite the grim reality of life behind bars, inmates often found solace and camaraderie in the form of music and dance. Cellblock dances became a way for prisoners to escape the realities of prison life. Lively music, energetic dance moves, and defiance against authority characterized these impromptu dance parties. From Jailhouse Rock to Dance Floor Groove, it’s history has come a long way!
