Jeni LeGon of Vancouver, Canada is a tap dancing legend and the former dance partner of Bill Robinson, Fred Astaire and Fats Waller. LeGon was a pioneer in tap dancing and perhaps the first famous black female dancing soloist. Unlike the many ladies of the stage, LeGon wore loose pants and low-heeled shoes as opposed to skirts and dresses. LeGon performed lead in film productions and all over the country, including in Los Angeles, London and New York. She was a beloved performer for the U.S. Army.
