Earl "Snakehips" Tucker (1905 â€šÃ„Ã¬ 1937) became known as the "Human Boa Constrictor." Frequenting the Harlem music clubs, he was a regular at the Savoy Ballroom. He built his reputation by exhibiting his odd style of dance, which involved a great deal of hip motion. Tucker would make it appear that he was as flexible as a snake, and eventually the dance became his calling card.
