Throwback Thursday Mystery Dancers

Throwback Thursday Mystery Dancers

In researching topics for today’s dance history blog, I ran across an interesting mystery: who are the dancers photographed for the 1949 movie Destination Moon?  

This movie is said to be the first major U.S. science fiction film to deal with the dangers inherent in human space travel. It won the Academy Award for Visual Effects.

There are several photographs of these dancers that appeared in Life Magazine (see the Link of the Day below), and it seems like it would be a relatively easy question to answer. Could the dancer seen in the jeté  be Jadin Wong?

If anyone knows who these dancers are, please leave a comment.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Dance History Secret #185:
“Who are the dancers in the 1949 movie Destination Moon?”
