The Velvet Nightshade Gallery

The ‘Mother of Modern Day Burlesque’, the inventive dancer, Sally Rand. The story goes that in working to make a skirt for her burlesque act she attempted to use feathers, until realising the skirt was impossible to fix in place. She then made fans to hide herself behind and the fan dance was born! She was also the lady sweetly lampooned in the Looney Tunes cartoon ‘Hollywood Steps Out’ for her famous ‘Bubble Dance’.
