Dance 35 Monday February 13 th , 2008 African American Influence on American Dance: Hips become involved. Lessens the taboos of western-European dance. Looseness, freedom of body, spontaneity. “Shakehips” Lindy Hop: Highly athletic. Women wear fewer clothes [one piece bathing suit] because women are more sensual. Bill “Bojangles” Robinson Teamed with Shirley Temple, co-starred with her in numerous films. Big step in African American Civil Rights. Tapped, did lots of theatrical work and charity shows. He wanted to jump the color gap and go to Hollywood. Starred as a butler in “The Little Colonel” with Shirley Temple. Did his stair dance. Box office hit! Hollywood wanted him to be a butler or servant on screen. Re-teamed with Temple and still played a stereotypical role, but he is depicted as a human being with feelings. Littlest Rebel.
