1939 World’s Fair

Posted on April 30th, 2010 by

On this date in 1939, the New York World’s Fair opened. To celebrate, here is some rare early color footage of dancing at the fair. While color was new, portable film recorders did not yet have sound… so we’ll have to enjoy in silence. Note that the world famous and historic Savoy Ballroom had an exhibit.

“Rob & Dawn are terrific teachers; they take it nice and slow for beginners and always add just that little bit extra, or different, for the ones who've already picked up the basics. I love going out to socialize and have fun at their Saturday Whirl & Twirl Swing dances. They're very friendly and make the dance fun. They show you how the dance is great for all ages, for the body and for the spirit.”
