Dancing is an art in itself. Ballroom dancing is exquisite... Frank Veloz and Yolanda Casazza (the couple in this picture) were the top U.S. Ballroom Dance team during the 1930's & 40's. This picture was the cover of LIFE magazine in October 1939, proclaiming them "Greatest Dancing Couple".
*-* It's almost impossible to put into words the genius, style, grace and athleticism of Fred Astaire, who died on this date in 1987 at the age of 88. He could do it all. And for decades he enchanted us in the films he made with Ginger Rogers including "Swing Time," as well as the movie musicals he made with such leading ladies as Rita Hayworth ("You Were Never Lovelier"), Cyd Charisse ("The Band Wagon"), Judy Garland ("Easter Parade") and Leslie Caron ("Daddy Long Legs").
