It is the people that make the past what it was. The lives people live, decisions they make, and things they accomplish are all woven into the tapestry of history and tell the story of the time period.

When Cyd Charisse was a child, she contracted polio. During her recovery for the potentially crippling disease, her parents enrolled her in dance classes. They thought the physical activity would help strengthen her muscles and prevent lingering mobility issues. They didn’t know that Cyd would excel at dancing and turn it into a lucrative career. Nearly every movie she appeared in required her to show off her dancing chops and the 1956 film, Meet Me in Las Vegas was no exception. In fact, the movie was written expressly for her and was meant to showcase her modern ballet style of dance.
