Dancing was the only area of my life in which I was superior.

– Joan Crawford

Most Old Hollywood fans already know that Joan was a recognized dancer during her time.

Aside from being a legendary actress, she also became famous for her tap dancing, Charleston, jitterbugging, and other dancing skills.

And she had lots of trophies to prove it.

Joan actually started her career as a dancer, not as an actress. She was a chorus girl for J.J. Shubert’s plays before she became the star of the screen.

To those saying she can’t dance, I suggest having your eyes fixed. Lol. A better option is to watch this video and see for yourself:

(Gotta thank the genius who made this super awesome video!!!)

Happy blogging (and fangirling!)

Do you know Postmodern Jukebox? If not, then it’s time to listen to one of their hits!

I have a reserved A-z Blogging Challenge entry about Postmodern Jukebox, so I won’t be talking about them for now.

This is one of my favorite PJ videos. I’m a sucker for anything vintage, and the fact that they successfully transformed Lady Gaga’s song into a 40s tap kind of music is amazing! Tap dancers amaze me.¬†From Gene Kelly to this guy… people who can tap dance rock!

Happy blogging (and tap dancing)!
