I absolutley LOVE this clip of Ginger Rogers doing the charleston. The scene was cut from the original movie. I am normally all about the big crazy wacky charleston but something about Ginger’s precision and girliness just fills me with dancing delight!
Isn’t it wonderful!? So cute it kills me! I used it as inspiration for some of the choreography in a new rountine I did for our Per>Lon show. More on that later dumplings. Needless to say, I am pretty excited about this act! I am already planning improvements and costume tweaks.
Now I just HAVE to share this with you. I found this clip when I was looking for the one above. It’s Ginger Rogers and Lucille Ball charlestoning on an episode of “Here’s Lucy”. She is 74. 74!!!! If I can still move like that when I am 50 I would count myself lucky. I also just adore Lucille Ball so it’s a double treat! She did her fair share of flappering back in the day. Enjoy!
Until next time!
