Rita Hayworth, the Dancer

I am so surprised many don’t know Rita Hayworth was a dancer.  She started dancing from childhood.  On her father’s side were well-known flamenco dancers.  I read one of her uncles taught Gene Kelly some flamenco moves.  Hayworth also got dancing genes from her mother, a Ziegfeld dancer. She dances with Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and unknown man  in the videos below.
