A woman’s role in dances back in the ’40s was to make the man look good. And with her talent and grace, she was always the main focus.
While Astaire respected her immensely, he decided to get a new female dance partner so he could shine again! They’re both great in this video, but you have to admit, there is something about Powell that really is awe-inspiring.
Please SHARE this classic clip if you’d love to watch her dance live on stage!
