Located at the Community Hall
Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation and Friday Connections and Diablo Ballet present:

Dance on Film: 42nd Street


42nd Street was billed as “all talking, all singing, all dancing” and was one of the most profitable films of 1933. The choreography was staged by Busby Berkeley, famous for his elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. This classic film received Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Sound Recording.

The film stars Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, George Brent and Ruby Keeler. Keeler’s tap dancing finale made her the first tap dance star of motion pictures.

Did you ever wonder how those dancin' feet of "42nd Street" do all those amazing moves? Find out how before the film screening with tap teacher, and Diablo Ballet Executive Director, Susan Boreliz. Susan will demonstrate some of the amazing dance steps featured in the film including, buffalos, cramp rolls, and even the Ruby Keeler, named for the film star.



Tickets free ($5 donation is appreciated). Registration is recommended to ensure seating. Refreshments.

Sponsored by the Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation and Diablo Ballet.



Dance on Film continues on Sunday, July 23 with the San Francisco Dance Film Festival presenting highlights from the 2016 festival, including award-winning screen dance shorts and the documentary film "Kick Ball Change." Check the program calendar for details.
