What is this?
|From the Sept 6, 1943 Issue|
What very few people know --- and what we are sharing with you --- is that (for some reason) Life chose to consult Arthur Murray for a "rationalization" of Lindy. In the September 6, 1943 issue, Life published this Diagram of the "Lindy Basic Step" in response to a reader comment.

Can you make any sense at all of this? I can't! Lately, we seem to have had an influx of persons with Ballroom Dance training. Maybe they can help me read these "Foot Diagrams." If all else fails, maybe someone cap program them into the Robot Dancer.
