Dancer, dance instructor, and actress Jeni Le Gon passed away last Friday (December 7th) at the age of 96.
Ms. Le Gon was a personal favorite of mine--I was introduced to her through the 1947 Cab Calloway film Hi-De-Ho.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of Ms. Le Gon's loved ones.
Here is Ms. Le Gon dancing in the 1939 film titled Double Deal...
...and here is a video of Ms. Le Gon performing in Seattle in 2007; this video was recently uploaded.
