Dancers in Union Building May 1963

Black and white photograph. Three couples are dancing together, with the men on the left of their partners and the women on the right. The women have a hand on their partner's shoulder and the other in a fist on their hips. The men are posed similarly, but with their hand on their partner's waist. Everyone is wearing a button up shirt, with the women wearing skirts with two horizontal white lines near the bottom. On the right hand side of the picture a smiling woman is leaning on a table watching them dance. On the table is a sash.

Off to the side, unnoticed by the twirling Cut A Rug Crew, Sally plotted the demise of the club that dared cast her aside during tryouts. The chilling photo was the last trace of the famed Chicken Dance Strangler.
