My dance history. Not very spectacular and very limited. My first musical was Song of Norway which called for some dancing manoeuvres. In fact it called for a ballet to the tune of a Grieg’s Piano Concerto. They wanted four young men to do dancing so we were dragooned into rehearsals with the dancing girls to get toned up in order to do that. I think it was the waltz. In the course of that they tried to teach us the rudiments of the fox-trot which didn’t really click and the quick step/slow quickstep. That would have been instilled in me up to a point which would have given me little confidence in asking someone to dance. I think on an earlier occasion.
