REPEAT
"Elvis Rock" is a country line dance that was choreographed by Vickie Vance & Kevin Johnson for a Tribute to "Elvis" Week, August, 1994, that was being promoted by Graceland. Graceland would like to help establish Elvis's rightful place among country dancers of today! The dance contains some of Elvis's signature moves: pelvic rolls, knee and arm movements.
