    Never has there been a person that moves an individual just by watching her walk. No others compare.
    Poor Fred Astaire . Like anyone was watching him when Cyd was there.
    Obvious of classical training when you are completely engrossed by her presents.

    My father made love to Cyd when he was a young man. My mother never was able to get this thought out of her mind, which led to intense jealousy. She eventually snapped and killed my father and then herself (in that order).

    Cyd is my favorite dancer. I can’t put into words that magical quality that she has while dancing. No one else has it. Silky smooth.
