Dance Fever!
As the Big Dance gets underway, the best dancers -
such as Robert Traylor and Dick Vitale - soak up all the
spotlight. But we wouldn't want to forget some other
famous dancers that we love:
Michael Jackson (Captain EO)W'
John Travolta (Greased Lightning)
Michigan hockey band director
Jamie Nix (you know, 'Dancer - < .
sieve!')
Fred Astaire (with or without
Ginger Rogers)>
Ally McBeal's Ooga-chocka babys
Madonna (Our Material Girl)'
Jessie Mae Carter (Traylor's grand-
mor Muhammad Ali ('Float like a butter-
fly, sting like a bee.')
DOC's Richard Golden (of 'Sexy r
Specs' fame) >
