Cyd Charisse

I was going to post a clip of Cyd Charisse yesterday evening but then I just kept wanting to watch just one more, so I never got round to it.

Here's an excellent short (2 1/2 mins) and powerful example of her dancing, in 'Party Girl' from the late 1950s.


It's really worth doing a YouTube search and looking at a few more. For instance Frankie and Johnny, in which she rips another girl's dress off (!!) and guns a man down with the power of dance.
