Background: Now a new twist to the "twist". The new dance fad has reached the Arctic where its called the "Eskimo Stomp". Because there are no twist records available, the music is jazz---played by the Frobisher Bay Seal-skinners--two Eskimos and a Scotsman. This dance is taking place at the I-O-D-E Hall at Apex Village near Frobisher Bay. The dance was introduced to the Arctic by an Eskimo girl who works in a Montreal Hospital. It was her Christmas present for everyone. It wasn't "twist" music---but it didn't seem to matter.
It was thirty-five below outside, but everyone warmed up in a hurry. Electric guitars, naturally, and the coolest music this side of the North Pole.
