102 year –old woman sees herself dance on film for the very first time

During the Harlem Renaissance of the 1930s and 1940s Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo and Zanzibar Club, alongside legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojanggles” Robinson.

Alice has danced in many movies, commercials and TV shows, but has never seen any of them. All of her photographs and memorabilia have been lost over the years.

Three “Soundies” in which Alice appears have been retrieved, and in the video below you will witness Alice watching herself dance for the first time. She had never seen herself in motion in her life!
