Astaire, Fred

Fred Astaire was a singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor who still is held in high regard by audiences. His dancing style mixes the grace of ballet with the free expression of jazz, and is usually done to showtunes.
Fred co-starred with the likes of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, and Ginger Rogers, along with many others, in movies and theatre.
