Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In the 1950s, the bunny hop was a dance craze in America, and FJC students joined the bandwagon at this Associated Women Students (AWS) Turnabout Dance. Created at Balboa High School in San Francisco in 1952, the novelty dance had participants dance in a line, holding on to the hips of the person in front of them. Bunny hoppers would then tap the floor two times with their right foot, then with their left, then hop forward, backwards, and finally three hops forward to complete the steps. FJC held its first Turnabout Dance in 1954, and these dances soon became popular with men, as it was women who invited men, paid for the tickets, and purchased any incidentals required.
