Sally Rand, 1930s (1)

Sally Rand (1904 – 1979) was a burlesque dancer and actress, most noted for her ostrich feather fan dance and balloon bubble dance.
She also performed under the name Billie Beck.
Sally was interested in dance from an early age and, literally, ran away with a carnival as a teenager.
She later pursued such career opportunities as night club cigarette girl, artist’s model, and cafe dancer.
Sally Rand was the first burlesque dancer to become famous for her fan dance, and she was also arrested because of it.
