This clip was sent to me by friend Jay Blotcher, an ol' TV hound who is always digging up lost classics to share with me. He and his partner recently checked out the Judy Garland Christmas Special...on VHS even! Liza, of course, is amazing though she is barely 17 years old. But also notable is her dance partner, Tracey Everitt who was a real Broadway hoofer back in the day. He was in the original class of such classics as WEST SIDE STORY, BYE BYE BIRDIE and even HOW TO SUCCEED, heading to Bway this spring with Daniel Radcliffe in the lead.
So where is Mr. Everitt these days? Well, Mr. Blotcher decided to find out and tracked him down to a dance studio in Hoboken where he teaches everything from ballroom to tap. Clearly he knows his stuff, as you'll see below.
