BREAKING: Dancer Cyd Charisse Has Died

Cyd Charisse, the dancer known for her long, athletic legs, has passed away earlier today. She was 86.

One of the great dancers from Hollywood’s Golden Age, Charisse starred in numerous musicals at MGM Studios and is perhaps best remembered for her work with Gene Kelly in Singin’ In The Rain (1952) and Brigadoon (1954) and Fred Astaire in The Band Wagon (1953) and Silk Stockings (1957). Kelly, impressed with her talent, often stated that he felt that the management of the studio never knew how to properly showcase the dancer to the best of her abilities.

Below is Charisse’s memorable appearance with Gene Kelly in Singin’ In The Rain.
