Did I blog about this already? (I'm almost certain I did). Some time back, I channel-surfed into a showing of Sweet Charity on one of the oldie TV channels, didn't recognize it, saw Richardo Montalban and stayed just to hear him talk, and in less than a minute, this dance number came up:
The lead dancer is Suzanne Charney. There was a point in my life where I'd'a happily handed over my eyeteeth just to have the potential to dance as well as she does; but that's a combination of natural gift and hard, hard work that doesn't just happen. (Not a huge surprise to discover she sculpts, either; think about the amount of visualization it takes to dance photogenically.)
(And boys, do try not to drool too much, mmmmkay?)
ETA: Tam recommends the Wikipedia article on The Frug.
* OTOH, if you are much into dance, especially modern, you have indeed heard of her.
